    The very first sandwich on the menu is the Blockbuster, and it's up top for a reason; this is a bold sandwich, featuring layers of ham, salami, capocollo, provolone, and Swiss.

    best subs in Chicago! used to be near UIC! even when this place is packed youll be in and out in 5 mins. American, Italian & Blockbuster! if you don't like it you eat too much Subway and are stupid.

    Pizza by the slice was great and such a great price too!! Worth the splurge on the diet to treat yourself! Fast, tasty, inexpensive - :-)

    They have a bunch of potato/pasta salads in little containers, but the macaroni salad is by far the best.

    Love the eggplant parmesan. One sandwich is enough for two lunches. Yum

    Dry bread and questionable quality meat. Stick with Potbelly.
