This is my third time to Luke's on visits to Phoenix from south Texas. The beefs are about as close as you can get to a neighborhood beef stand back in my old hometown of Chicago. My one gripe is the 70cents for a so/so giardenaire which wasn't very hot or good. I hate being charged for sauces etc which... More

In Chicago, it isn't unusual to stop for a beef or hot dog. The best i have ever eaten. Started in Chicago, then found them in Tucson and finally they came to Phoenix. It will be 46 years August 2016.....yeah it is the best. Philly has nothing on Luke's Beef. Try the combo with green bell peppers and some hot... More

Luke's Italian Beef is worth driving all the way from Chicago to get. Luke's has been a regular in our lunch rotation for over 10 years. Never fails to disappoint. Gets a bit busy and crowded during lunch so plan a bit of a wait. The menu goes beyond Italian Beef and includes brats, dogs, etc. Good variety and good... More

Food good over all was great and decently priced. But the dude taking my order wasn't nice and looked mean. With a butterfly knife around a his neck. Really?! But the food was awsome!!
