A Chicago institution for two-fisted Italian beef sandwiches piled with green peppers and provolone cheese, Mr. Beef garners citywide fans from area hard hats to restaurateurs and TV personalities. Service and setting—two indoor picnic tables and a dining rail—are fast-food no-nonsense, and the fare is inexpensive. This workingman's favorite is, go figure, located near River North's art galleries.
