Zel's Roast Beef

Regional Fast Food
-Roast Beef Sandwiches in NW Indiana

Zel's is a small mini chain serving fresh roast beef sandwiches in the NW Indiana area. Unfortunately there's not much on the internet about the popular chain so I don't know much as far as history. Readers, please feel free to chime in.

I've been to Zel's a few times thru the years and enjoyed my visits. Many people say it reminds them of what Arby's was before the compacted reconstituted meat took over. Their roast beefs are similar in ways to Chicago's Italian beefs but come served with pickles and pepperoncini peppers as opposed to giardineria. Cups of gravy are available. They also offer chili cheese fries and although I have never had one their chili cheeseburgers are popular too. A nice regional fast food option to have if your from the area.

Do they ship outside of Indiana? We use to live in NW Indiana and made a point to get there at least once a week. Now living in Las Vegas we cannot find a place equal to Zels and would love to have their roast beef sandwiches again.
