I'm an old Chicago boy so I'm fairly confident that I have some knowledge of Italian Beef sandwiches. TJ does a real nice here and the beef sandwiches are as close to Chicago as I've found. Hot dogs are great too..

Tried the new foot long polish and believe me it was long. Plenty of fries come with it too. It was good only I don't think I'll order it again since it was a little more then I wanted to eat. Between 12-1:00pm it's usually pretty busy and not a lot of room to sit so I like to go... More

Good, fast service. A couple tasty dogs and a chocolate malt. Like that just enough French fries come with each Chicago style hot dog. Loaded mine up with everything that comes with it. Will be back again when I have the urge.

Every time I stop in Milwaukee I visit Martino's at least once, usually on my way to/from General Mitchell International Airport. They have the BEST hotdogs in Milwaukee! I always order the Chicago dog, and it never disappoints. I wish they had a sampler platter, so I could try a smaller version of the Slaw/Southwest/BaconCheese dogs. When are you bringing... More

I recently stopped in for lunch with my daughter and son-in-law. Service is fast, prices are low, and the food is good. It's nothing fancy, but they have great hotdogs and fries. You can also refill your drink at their soda station. I highly recommend this place for a quick lunch.

Martino's is how fast food should be, with their wide variety of choices and great tasting food, you can't go wrong. The hot dogs are huge and yummy, and I loved my Italian Beef with hot peppers. My daughter even loved the spaghetti and meatballs. Great lemonade, too.

I went here for a quick dinner with my roommate who loves cheddar brats! He was so disappointed we had to go eat elsewhere within a few hours. His cheddar brat was missing the cheese! I ordered a burger to give this place a fare chance. The burger was a standard grilled burger, nothing special. The atmosphere was that of... More

The people are very friendly and the service is quick. The menu is bound to please just about everybody where it be a hot dog, roast beef, a malt or slice of Banana bread. This is a great place to eat.

Not often that I get back to the mid-west, and so I don't often get good Italian Beef sandwich's, so on this trip I had to try it out. Glad I did! Great Italian Beef sandwich. Atmosphere is very basic, serve yourself type place but the food makes up for it.

After a flight, stopped by for quick bite of classic Chicago hot dogs and chili dogs with fries. Delivered good food fast. Nice tradition in Milwaukee.

Thank Julie A
