Sandwich Place
“If you are looking for the best local sub, then forget about Subway, Jimmy John's or Pot Belly. Alpine Food Shop is where you want to spend your money. The flagship sandwich is the Alpine sub, but they have many others to choose from. If you're looking for the best Italian sausages in the area, look no further. They carry a small selection of Italian staples as well; antipasta's, salads, branded sauces, giardiniera and Italian bread. There are a few outstanding Chicago delis and Alpine stands tall amongst them.”
