Chicago’s Best Italian Beef Joint is Coming to the Rockford Area
Nobody does Italian beef better than Illinois. One of Chicago's best beef sandwich shops will soon open a new location in Loves Park with a special surprise.
One of the fastest-growing areas in the Rock River Valley is about to grow again and in a couple of very delicious ways.
I love the business growth in our region in the last couple of years, even more so when that growth brings new food joints that everyone in my family will love.
Chicago's Best Italian Beef is Coming to Loves Park
The East Riverside Boulevard corridor is growing again, this time, two legendary Chicago brands will join together for one unforgettable Italian beef and ice cream dinner. The available land for development in front of Blain's Farm & Fleet is running out as that one large parcel right at the corner of East Riverside Blvd and Galleria Drive will soon have new tenants.
Taco Bell, DQ Grill n Chill, Tom & Jerry's, Chipotle, Starbucks, and Sherwin-Willimas Paint will soon have new neighbors, Buona Italian Beef and the Original Rainbow Cone, together in the same building.
Joe and Peggy Buonavolanto opened their first restaurant location in 1981 in Berwyn, the suburban city close to the start of historic Route 66. The success of that original Buona Beef location led to more than 25 locations throughout Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
Don't just get your beef dipped, get it BAPTIZED! Trust me, there's a big difference in Buona's beef that you'll taste right away.
You asked for it juicy, so here's a fully BAPTIZED ITALIAN BEEF
There's your dinner, now for your dessert?
Another family-owned business, Original Rainbow Cone has been around for almost 100 years. Joseph and Katherine Sapp opened the first Rainbow Cone stand in 1926 in Chicago. One of their original creations is the Rainbow Cone, for those (like the Sapp's) who couldn't decide on what flavor to get, so why not 5 different flavors:
- Orange sherbet.
- Palmer House (New York vanilla with cherries and walnuts)
