I've known of this place for a few years and finally made a stop there on Saturday. No need to go back, as the beef was dry and lacking flavor. The pepperoncini and pickles were no help. I may just be used to Italian Beef sandwiches and that's what I was expecting, but I was very disappointed. Frankly, I don't understand all these great reviews.Go into the city people and get some good food.
my first visit to zels was in the mid 70's.it was on the north side of east chicago in. on indianapolis blvd.(h.w. 41) it was close to where i worked. i went there almost every day for lunch.i even got to know the owner and his wife. his father started the family owned restraunt.they opened another place on columbis drive. when the owner died his wife sold the resturants.since then the new owners built several resturants scatered around lake county.the roast beef sandwiches are still good,but the rest of the food has suffered.the chille cheese burgers and chille cheese dogs we to die for.i don't know what they did to the chille, but it's not the same.and it;s a little to pricey.
My grandparents use to live in Hammond Ind and that is one of the things that I miss the most is Zels. I day dream about their Roast Beefs sandwiches all the time. I am in the Dallas/Ft.Worth Texas and there is nothing like that around here. I so miss NW Indiana!!!!! Someone eat a Roast Beef Sandwich with some fries and Chocolate Shake for me!!!! Peace Out!!!!
Oh My God!!!!!!!This is the best roast beef in America Land!!!!If you are in this area (hammond indiana )Stop!!!In you will not regret it. The shakes,Everything is good!!I moved away from there 16 Years ago And I never stop thinking of them juicy roast beef sandwhiches. They need to come to San antonio texas where our soldier guys from Lackland Airforce and Kelly Airforce would enjoy these sandwhiches. Move down here guys!!Your buisness will go sky rocket High!!!Like our jets do. Thank you for your great food!!
Zel's is the restaurant of this area that makes mouth watering beef sandwichs that are plain tender roast beef with simply pickles and hot peppers on it or the beef dipped in tangy sweet bar-b-que sauce or covered in homemade beef chili. This sandwichh is the best adult sandwich in the area for beef. They also sell hotdogs all beef served with Chicago Style toppings, cheese and onions, chili and cheese. They also have a few specialty items like fish and chicken sandwich which are also good. Most of the large adult items are also available in child size portions. The price is good for the amount of great food that is served to you. Stop by and have a roast beef.
