I have to be honest, food is good and has a great variety for a group who is not looking to have the same thing since it's so difficult to please everyone. Especially when debating the whole where you want to go and eat. From pizza to salads to vegan, happy selection to Italian beef. So the review would have to be for the burgers that they have there. Great flavor backyard BBQ homestyle burgers not like your traditional bland burgers you get elsewhere. Definitely try them out for that and convenience to accommodate others taste buds.

I love Buona beef sandwiches, especially when they are baptized. The meat is lean, juicy, and flavorful. The team at Buona beef are fast, efficient and friendly. You can't go wrong.
I had a fabulous salad with chicken and avocado and fruit and nuts. The rest of my family had beef and sausage sandwiches. The large size sandwiches are huge and we initially expected to take some home. They ended up eating every but of them. We were all happy. One of the staff came over to check to make sure that we had everything. You can order ahead if you like and they have takeout. We ate inside the restaurant and it was not crowded at all. We had not eaten in one of these restaurants in a long time. We were pleased and will be back.

Our goals were some intersection of cheap and delicious, like so many travelers who come into Chicago, we had little time. Buona was the profound solution having both these qualities, the perfect push and pull between quality and price. Simultaneously healthy and indulgent, it really is up to you the experience you want to have. (come on Tuesdays for milkshake happy hour) Not to mention the welcoming service or obviously well trained staff who genuinely just want you to enjoy your time here (thank you Dana for your customer care and being so informed helping explain the menu). Also I loved Earthmed right next door. I would recommend going in there before entering Buona's.

Four decades, three generations and several dozen restaurants ago, Joe and Peggy Buonavolanto opened the first Buona Beef restaurant in Berwyn, IL, which specialized in their authentic recipe for Italian Beef Sandwiches.
