His family is Italian and he’s from Chicago. Now he’s brought his homemade Chicago-style Italian beef sandwich family recipe to Metro Detroit. We tried the food at Matt & Mo’s Italian Beef in Hazel Park to see if it’s as good as a place we crave when we go to Chicago, Portillo’s.
The food stand is located inside Doug’s Delight Ice Cream Shop at 24110 John R. Road. Owners Matt and Mo Marzullo said they wanted to bring the family recipe to Metro Detroit because there are not very many places you can find authentic Chicago-Style Italian beef in the area.
“I’m originally from here. I met Matt when I moved to Chicago. We wanted to move back here because I wanted to be close to my family,” Mo Marzullo told MLive. “We came up with the idea to do Italian Beef because it really doesn’t exist around here. We started our food truck and drove it all over Southeast Michigan to spread the word. Our goal was always to have a food stand and that’s where we are now.”
