If you’re a fan of The Bear, you undoubtedly know that the true deserving Emmy-nominee is none other than the iconic Mr. Beef on Orleans St. This Chicago classic is home to one of the most famous Italian Beef Sandwiches, single handedly renowned for its striking, yet ageless flavors. This weekend, they are being rightfully honored by Publican Quality Meats and Publican Quality Bread with something that is just as star-studded as the series’ cast.

They are teaming up to craft their own spin on the beloved Italian Beef Sandwich, inspired by the one and only Mr. Beef— the legendary beef stand that has been dishing out some of Chicago’s finest since the 1960s.
