Homesick for Chicago, or know someone who is? Take your taste buds on a trip back at Luke’s of Chicago, an Arizona restaurant that originated in the Windy City. The recipes and preparation techniques for the signature Italian beef – thinly sliced, tender, full of flavor, and totally irresistible – were handed down by family members to Cary and Diana Lee Del Principe, who own and operate the locally based restaurant. In addition to authentic Italian beef and sausage sandwiches, Luke’s offers meatball subs with provolone cheese, sweet pepper and egg sandwiches, chili cheese dogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, and chicken tenders. If you want a hot dog, don’t you dare order it with just mustard and ketchup. Try the true Chicago-style “The Works,” a Vienna all-beef hot dog topped with ketchup, mustard, onions, tomatoes, hot peppers, pickles, green peppers, and celery salt. With locations in CenPho, Chandler, and Scottsdale, Luke’s of Chicago ensures that you’re never far from that real Chi-town flavor.
