This is the real deal. You won't be disappointed. I pray they never leave. We come 30 miles to get our Chicago style Italian beef and hotdogs at Beef Etc.

The only place to go in western Wisconsin if you're craving an Italian Beef or a Chicago Dog. It tastes just like you're sitting in the Windy City enjoying these famous treats. Atmosphere is dated, but it just adds to the charm.

There is a reason Beef & Etc named themselves that way. The Spicy Italian Beef sandwiches are out of this world! It is a bit of a dive and most.people only discover it from word of mouth. The place is decked out with Chicago pride....More
