Pekara on Springfield has some new weekday specials. Today, Thursday, is the sirloin sandwich (sliced sirloin, cheddar cheese, caramelized onions on toasted brioche). It looks great. 

Tomorrow, Friday, is the Champaign Philly (sliced sirloin, provolone, sautéed onions and peppers, Herlocher's mustard mayo on a toasted ciabatta hoagie).

Don't forget your side of loaded fries
