From many Chicagoans, Joe & Franks came highly recommended for their roasted pig. I ordered a ~50 lb roasted pig for a party of ~40 people. It was, to say the least, AMAZING: succulent, tender, easy to carve, PLENTIFUL. Filled all guests & had leftovers for numerous people, and then some. Everyone raved; said it was the best they've ever eaten. It's delicious on it's own, or with BBQ sauce as a sandwich.
food is good but the store itself can use huge updates. the carts are hard to push, the registers are old and soon will die out, deli is old fashion - and plenty more. this store could use many improvements
I have tried sausage from at least 3 other competitors in the area and find Joe and Franks to be the best. No joke. Perfect blend of seasoning. Not too overpowering. Superb texture. Definite palate pleaser. The only sausage I will use to compliment a nice homemade kapusta.
