Although I'm from New Lenox I make the drive out to Mokena's Pop's for a good beef sandwich. So they have my vote. However, if I don't feel like making the drive Ranch Frosties has darn good beef. I recommend it ;)

In New Lenox...It's Badda Bings. Great for catering as well! In Mokena...Pop's (I think they use sourdough bread which adds to the flavor)
