Great Place for Pizza and Breaded Steak! – Great Pizza, burgers, breaded steak, italian sanwiches. Overall good food, friendly staff and the best pizza in town! WE NEED A RICOBENES IN THE NORTH SIDE!! It's worth the drive to the southside and the dining area is huge! Service is friendly and fast!! Highly recommend!
Editorial Review by Valerie Moloney – This Chicago chain has made its name on its offerings of pizza, pasta and sandwiches.
Horrible Wings – So I had a huge craving for some wings and I saw Ricobene's menu in my office. I asked my fellow co-worker, a surly Polish man, what he thinks of this place and he looked at me and said "Everything there is garbage, don't go there, it'll be the biggest mistake of your life." I sat back and thought, "Hmmm....I've never been here before and they have been in the biz since 1946, they must know what they are doing."
They do not. I somehow managed to talk other co-worker into going with me, and in essence I was telling my polish friend, "You can't tell a grown man what to do with his stupid life, I am going anyways."
We arrived shortly thereafter at their 26th street location, and I excitedly walked in, not knowing the horrible disappointment I would soon face. I walked up to the counter and saw the wings, and in an act of defiance, I went not only with a single order but a double order of 16 wings to really drive the point home to my Pollack mate.
I waited several minutes and my order number was called. Number 98, which is roughly how much percent of my body is sick after eating these wings. They were gigantic wings, breaded, covered in weird sweet sauce. I tried to be optimistic, I looked at my co-worker and said "Man, they sure do make a mean Diet Coke"
But the truth hurts, I feel like i was assaulted by the wings. I feel confused, and sad, and I don't know why this happened to me. I'm a good person.....
I went looking for pity, I called my girlfriend and she said "That's what you get for not packing your lunch". I hurried back to the office and told my coworker and maybe he would give me a hug. Instead he told me "I hate you for not listening" and slugged me in the stomach. I was hoping he would slug me hard enough that I would spew the wings. I had no such luck.
The other co-worker I invited with me. He actually quit his job because he "couldn't work with someone that would make such stupid decisions".
I am alone and miserable, and hungry.
best breaded steak sandwich – We haven't lived in chgo for 18 yrs but still crave the steak sandwiches and the italian ice. the only draw back was the oriinal locationon 26th and no parking.
Eat the breaded steak sandwich! – Fast delivery service, fair prices for the portions they serve. I have not had a bad meal here yet. A definite must for anyone in, or passing through, Chicago.
Look no further for the best breaded steak sandwich – Ricobenes is an essential stop. I always order the king size steak sandwich. Usually, I can only finish half. Save the rest for later (its great cold too). The fries are awesome. They are fresh cut with the skin on. The pizza is excellent. We order from here every other week, and there are many things on the menu, but I havn't tried anything else besides the mentioned 3 because they are so good. This is not one to miss!
Try to avoid on here on weekend nights, they are so busy you will be waiting hours for delivery, go in as pickup or dine in on weekends – I live in Cincinnati Ohio but I was born and Raised in the Chi, I absolutely love the Breaded Steak Sandwiches from here, They are DA BOMB!!!!!!! Pizza and roast beef are good too, but my fave is the steak
I love this place!!! – I first tried the breaded steak sandwiches at the taste of chicago and was hooked. Have eaten there many times since. The pizza is great also. I want to try other items on the menu, but I keep going back to that breaded steak sandwich!!
GREAT BREADED STEAK – I have only had the breaded steak from ricobene's but, it was great. i highly recommend the breaded steak. i cant speak for everything else, but the service was good too
RICOBENES ONE OF A KIND LIKE CHICAGO – A CHICAGO LANDMARK WITH GREAT ITALIAN SANDWICHES IE BREADED STEAK, CHICKEN VESUVIO. EGGPLANT, BEFF. GREAT FRIES WINGS AND PIZZA. CAUTION CAN BECOME VERY ADDICTING!!! BUY SOME BIGGER PANTS
