Some of the tastiest sandwiches in the city in a fast food setting. Italian beef and sausage are the best I've had in dozens of attempts across the country. Quick service and friendly greetings by the staff are a plus. Skip the fries and go with all the other sides.

I eat here every chance I get. They have been in business forever. If your looking for a good Chicago dog or Italian beef, this is the place. Only bad thing about this place is its closed Sunday's. Hehe

I'm an old Chicago boy so I'm fairly confident that I have some knowledge of Italian Beef sandwiches. TJ does a real nice here and the beef sandwiches are as close to Chicago as I've found. Hot dogs are great too..

Tried the new foot long polish and believe me it was long. Plenty of fries come with it too. It was good only I don't think I'll order it again since it was a little more then I wanted to eat. Between 12-1:00pm it's usually pretty busy and not a lot of room to sit so I like to go... More

Good, fast service. A couple tasty dogs and a chocolate malt. Like that just enough French fries come with each Chicago style hot dog. Loaded mine up with everything that comes with it. Will be back again when I have the urge.

Every time I stop in Milwaukee I visit Martino's at least once, usually on my way to/from General Mitchell International Airport. They have the BEST hotdogs in Milwaukee! I always order the Chicago dog, and it never disappoints. I wish they had a sampler platter, so I could try a smaller version of the Slaw/Southwest/BaconCheese dogs. When are you bringing... More

I recently stopped in for lunch with my daughter and son-in-law. Service is fast, prices are low, and the food is good. It's nothing fancy, but they have great hotdogs and fries. You can also refill your drink at their soda station. I highly recommend this place for a quick lunch.
