Who is HANK and what is up with his JUICY BEEF?
HANK is the nickname of Henry Tibensky -- mover, shaker, and Italian beef maker.
Hank was born and raised in Oak Park, Illinois, the "epicenter of beef culture" in Chicagoland. Surrounded by some of the awesomest Italian beef places in town, Hank lived and loved the beef experience his entire life, as did his parents, grandparents, friends and out-of-town'rs. In fact, Hank's aunt's family owned and operated a beef and pizza place - Vito's - on Chicago's west side for over 40 years.
Building on three generations of family beef!, Hank has reinvigorated his family's old-school recipe for the modern palate. After slow-roasting the (hormone- and antibiotic-free) beef, Hank slices it paper thin, adds savory Italian seasoning, and marinates it in his special au jus. HJB is served hot and juicy on a freshly-baked French roll, with your choice of fresh provolone cheese, "hot" or mild giardiniera (pickled vegetables "from the garden"), and/or sautéed green peppers.
Hank's Juicy Beef is unlike any sandwich you've had, or more likely, haven't had!
So where can I get some HANK's JUICY BEEF?
After living in NYC for 12 years -- and only being able to dream about his favorite sandwich -- Hank decided New York and the East Coast could use some Juicy Beef..
