Carlo Sarlo's Italian Beef. Park Ridge Illinois USA. June 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page, from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.
What happens when a corporate fast food giant like KFC decides to close a store location, due to the fact that it is an older store from 40 years ago and is now too small or inadequette for their expanding menu and needs?
They sell the building to a smaller independent local business operation.
Seen here at the northeast corner of West Touhy and North Greenwood Avenues in northwest suburban Park Ridge Illinois, is a former Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant store location, that recently became Carlo Sarlo's Italian Beef.
Carlo Sarlo, was a local Italian boxing champion from Chicago during the early 1950's. This restaurant is named after the late boxing champion, and their adverising slogan is ..."Our beef is a knock out!"
The food is very good here.
