“Awesome Food! ”
Review of Buona Beef

Buona Beef
Ranked #22 of 513 Restaurants in Naperville
Cuisines: Italian, Fast food
Description: Buona is a quick casual restaurant chain that features Original Italian Beef, Pizza, Burgers, Hot Dogs, Sandwiches and Salads. The first Buona restaurant was established in Berwyn, IL in 1981, by Buonavolanto Patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr. He was among the group of Italian Americans who perfected Chicago's original Italian beef. The menu is a blend of old-school Chicago classics and next-generation menu choices - made from scratch with fresh ingredients. While the menu has expanded, the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.

Just great food especially the beef sandwich. Service was a little slow but it was lunch time. Very flavorful, tasty beef and my only negative comment would be that you are a little scotch on the amount of beef and cheese. Otherwise great!

Casual family style restaurant with friendly staff serving The BEST Italian Beef Sandwich that I have had and I have travelled through out the United States checking them out. Their smaller pizzas are also reasonable and tasty and you get repeat customer points which gives you $5 off after accumulating 100 points. GREAT Value!

These folks have this down pat thru out the chain- excellent food served quickly and efficiently.
The beef sandwiches are solid and in the top 15 for Chicagoland- not Johnnies but very good.
Also liked their individual pizzas- bargain on Thursday night.

Italian Beef sandwiches are just as good as those the Chicago street vendors used to serve. Just the right amount of juice. Bread is not soggy, but not dry either. Get the sweet peppers. Drive through or eat in. Service is fast and efficient. Corner location is easiest to access when coming from west or south. Great for lunch or a quick but hearty dinner.
