The lights have been out and the equipment has been removed from Turk’s Italian Beef and Sausage in Orland Park since November.

The restaurant, known for it’s in-house made beef and giardiniera, has closed its doors at 14600 S. LaGrange Road after 18 years, according to their Facebook page.

But the signature beef lives on at Sam’s Triple Crown, 9201 W. 159th Street in Orland Hills. Turk’s Beef is on special Wednesdays for $4.99, according to Sam’s website.

When asked why the place closed, the LaGrange Road widening over the next three years was cited on the Facebook page.

Owners of Turk’s didn’t respond to a request for further comment.
