I recently noticed signs at Wendy’s locations here in the Chicago area announcing Italian beef. Not sure why they would even bother trying to offer this Chicago specialty when you can swing a cat in almost any direction and hit local chains and mom-and-pops doing beef the way it ought to be done. It might fly at Wendy’s locations far away from here, to serve Chi-town expatriates who have no other choice or the uninitiated looking for something different. Admittedly, I haven’t tried Wendy’s Italian beef, but I don’t see the need. Seems to me anyone in the Chicago area would write off this offering sight unseen (and untasted).
