Hank’s Juicy Beef
84 Chambers St.
(bet. Church and Broadway)
American (Traditional)

One taste of the Chicago-style Italian beef sandwich and you can see why Henry “Hank” Tibensky decided to open his restaurant. Here’s the HJB website’s description: “Slow roasted beef, marinated in savory Italian herbs and spices, topped with a spicy (or mild) giardiniera, and loaded onto a soft Italian-style roll.” The short menu also includes eggplant parm and Italian sausage sandwiches, along with a beef-sausage combo. All of the cooking is done on the premises, including the giardiniera and the lemon Italian ice. The space, most recently an outpost of Quiznos, has been opened up and spruced up, with seating for 20, a Michael Jordan poster, and a zesty neon sign over tropical wallpaper.
