Editorial Review of Mr. Beef

Just in case you already were not aware that Mr. Beef on Orleans is Jay Leno's favorite restaurant, a quick glance at the dozens of pictures of Leno on the wall might give you a clue. Not that Leno is the guy we should trust with our restaurant selection, but there's a reason that Leno has fallen in love with Mr. Beef; it makes the best Italian beef sandwiches in the country.

Push your way through the crowds of people running in and out with bags of beef sandwiches in tow. Mr. Beef doesn't believe in chairs or stools, so everyone eats standing up at tiny counters that run along the walls. The beef is juicy, sweet and tasty, the fries are crispy and a full meal with a drink with only cost you about $6. And not to worry if you're craving other fast food fare like chicken sandwiches or burgers; Mr. Beef has that too.

Average cost: <$10
