The first Buona restaurant began serving Chicago’s original Italian beef in Berwyn, IL in 1981. Founded by Buonavolanto patriarch Joe Buonavolanto, Sr., the original beef recipe has not been compromised - for the three generations of Buonavolantos who are active in the company, compromise and quality are never uttered in the same breath.  Slow roasted beef cooked in its own natural juices, seasoned to perfection with traditional Italian spices, thinly sliced, and ready to be  piled onto Italian bread and garnished with sweet bell peppers or hot giardiniera to make Chicago’s iconic Italian Beef sandwich!

Buona is the official Italian beef of both the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox and is proudly served at Soldier Field for all Bears games. Buona’s Italian beef sandwich has won several awards and accolades since its inception, including USA TODAY’s 10Best, Eater’s 11 Essential Chicago Italian Beef Restaurants The Chicago Tribune’s Best Italian Beef in Chicago, Steve Dolinsky’s Essential Italian Beef Joints in Chicago(land), Eater’s 11 Essential Chicago Italian Beef Restaurants, Berwyn’s Best, West Suburban Living’s Best of the West, The Daily Herald’s Reader’s Choice Award.
