Tale of the Tape

(2) Beyond Bread

Beyond Bread Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Three locations (Northwest, Central, East). Speedway/Wilmot location pictured


Cuisine: Bakery

Yelp rating: 4 stars

Entertaining Yelp review:  "Important note to those who don't know. Avoid the Ciabatta bread at all cost. It comes standard on some sandwiches (though I don't know why). Those sandwiches have a tooth next to them on the menu. Why? Because you'll break a tooth on it, its so hard. There is nothing enjoyable about that bread. How many times do they have to be sued before it sinks in and they get rid of that awful bread or at least stop making it standard on sandwiches? (Tangent over)"

(15) Luke's Italian Beef

Luke's Italian Beef Jason Bartel

Neighborhood: Multiple locations. Luke's on Grant pictured


Cuisine: Italian

Yelp rating: 3.5 stars

Entertaining Yelp review: "Good ole Chicago food. Chicago dogs and Italian beef. Fries were pretty good too. Standard prices for sandwiches. The only downside is RC cola."
