We always get the Italian Beef sandwiches. They are delicious and fast for a casual dining experience.

Was waiting for my flight at the nearby Home2 Hotel. Called and a very nice young man answered my questions and took my order. Said 40 minutes but they were there in 20. Good thin crust pie. They make a Chicago pie but it said 40 minute cook time and I didn't want to wait. There's an Italian beef they... More

I've had burgers and hot dogs at this establishment. Both were tasty. The menu offers many choices of burgers, hot dogs, and sausages. The food is a bit pricey for burgers and hot dogs but they have specials daily that help on this aspect. The eating area is casual and is clean.

We had a large pizza for lunch. The pizza was excellent and the whole family enjoyed it thoroughly. The staff is friendly and the service was pretty fast. They do get busy around lunch time on a week day so plan accordingly. Definitely recommend eating here.

Our last night in Anchorage, we went for pizza. During this trip we ate too much fish, salmon particularly. We'd like to try this pizza at Johnny's Chicago, they seems popular in the states, so we thought we go for it When we get inside we were greeted by a young girl who takes order. She was so friendly. There... More

We have been gone from Chgo area for a month and were jonesing for a beef sandwich. Went here and were not disappointed (although it was very salty). The DH had a gyro, although tasty, was not a lot of meat piled up like we are familiar with. Being used to Portillo's and Buona Beef's speed, I felt like I... More

I wanted to try Johnny Chicago's for a while, and I'm glad I did. The folks in there are super friendly, right up front. They knew folks by name that had been in formerly, and treated us as a regular our very first visit. I ordered the Italian Beef, wet and hot, and it was delectable. Warm, tender roast beef,... More

The steak sandwich here is easily one of the best sandwiches I have had in town! Make sure you have them dunk it in the au jus! Yes, it is messy, but oh my gosh it is good! Their other food looks amazing, but I haven't been able to stray from the steak sandwich so far. I have, however, tried... More

Can only comment on pizza as we had take out. We had the regular pizza and also a deep dish. Both were very good. I had never had a deep dish so I did not know what to expect but I would certainly eat it again. I see why it is called a "tomato pie."

Good place to get a Gyro but everything there seemed so mediocre. The pizza laid out for hours under heat lamps for by the slice and the staff didn't seem to care all that much how fast orders got out. Maybe get a quick bite here but its nothing special.
