I'm from the Chicago suburbs and "was raised on" Chicago Italian Beef sandwiches. This guy does it right! The seasonings are great, the beef is tender and the bread is yummy. I always order it wet. Another restaurant (Gentile Bros. Philly cheese steaks) was closed...More

We visited Little Joe's twice while staying at Siesta Key. We tried their steak and cheese sandwiches as well as hamburger's and hot dogs. Everything was exactly what you would hope for from a Chicago style sandwich place. Excellent value.

Great owner, really took the time to explain our options. Then, the food. Yeah! GOOD stuff! Did I mention how reasonable the prices are? Honestly, you can't go wrong here. Lunch or dinner, you ought to give Joe's a try.
