100 Favorite Dishes, No. 81: The Italian Beef At Jimmy's
To prepare for this fall's Best of Dallas® 2012 issue, we're counting down (in no particular order) our 100 Favorite Dishes. If there's a dish you think we need to try, leave it in the comments, or email me.
While working on my story about Jimmy's we took a ton of photos and I'm happy that Catherine Downs nabbed this shot of Jimmy's Italian beef sandwich. Not only does it put my photo to shame, but it also reminded me to include this sandwich in our 100 Favorite dishes list.
Sure, its made of prepackaged products shipped down from Chi-town, but they come together in an honest rendition of the sandwich that works really really well. Order yours with extra giardiniera. The spicy and acidic pickle of carrots, celery and peppers make the sandwich.
And don't forget extra napkins.
