    I started going to Carm's in 1987. They have the best Italian Beef sandwiches w/ provolone and sweet peppers that I have ever tasted. I now live in Connecticut but every time I get back to the Chicago area to visit or on business I make a must visit to Carm's on Wolf road for a fix. If the Bears are in the playoffs this year I'm going to have them FedEx all the fixings to me. These people out here have no idea what they are missing.

    HEY !!!!! I have been eating Carm's Beef all my life...I have never tasted better...I work at Ohare for United Airlines but I only work contract maintanence for Japan Airlines. Today I take 5 pounds of beef and all the fixin's to treat them to lunch. These are all people here from Japan (Home of Kobe Beef)working for 4 year stays......We eat 5 pounds in less than 1 hour 10-12 people. Many say that they have "NEVER TASTED" such beef......I wish to thank you for such a Good Day.....

    50 years ago, I tasted my first Carm's Italian Beef sandwich. Now the closest restaurant is 2,000 miles from me but I would still go out of my way for a Carm's Italian Beef sandwich smothered in green peppers. With their special spices, they're simply the best in Chicago.

    I started going to Carms in Berwyn in the 60's. There was nothing better! Then they moved to Oak Park. Then they were gone.

    I have an Uncle in his 70's who grew up in Cicero and remembers my Dad stopping at the original Carm's and bringing home a beef sandwich when he got off second shift. When my Uncle comes in from KC he always stops Carm's for a beef sandwich. Sometimes I'm lucky enough to go over with him.

    Carm's has the best Italian beef ever. I have tried beef sandwiches at five places and no one compares to Carms. I have not had a Carm's beef sandwich in four years but I will be having one on June 29 and I can hardly wait. I have decided that they are worth a 400 mile round trip. Inside of spending a day traveling to a shopping mall. I am going to spend a day each year travelling to Carms.

    The best beef sandwiches in Illinois and Iowa.

    I've been to Carm's once and trust me when I say the beef sandwich was the best I've ever had, the service was awesome, it was very clean and it just had a nice comfortable feel to it, I live a little far from there but I can't wait for my next visit,I'm actually looking into having them cater my sons birthday party.
