Amazing sub sandwiches for pretty cheap. My only complaint is that at peak lunch times the lines are very long. You can order over the phone but I've found that the price of my sandwich turns into $0.50 more, so I always go there in person for the eggplant sandwich (Italian Veggie minus the cheese), my suggestion is to get gardinera with it too. They have mild, medium, and hot gardinera that they make themselves. The d'Amatos bread it's on is amazing too! Very Italian atmosphere, the deli is in the back of the grocery store. If you do get anything from the grocery though, be sure to check the expiration dates as a lot of things I noticed were expired.

It's true; their "customer service" at the register is a bit wanting, but this is a deli and not a Starbucks. You want great customer service at a register for a sandwich in lieu of a great sandwich? Go to Starbucks. I can tell by the other reviewer's comments that they've never actually been in the store because the counter service in the back at the deli (where it counts) is extraordinary. We're talking old school Italian deli with all sorts of cuts of meat and and variety of cured flavor. Got a question about the difference between salamis? They'll answer it for you with care. Their Italian sub is the best in Chicago bar-none with their crusty bread from D'amato's and their spectacularly fresh and delicious meats and cheeses. Also, their olive salad will make any olive-fiend break.

I was a little disappointed with the rudeness of the girl that answered the phone when I called to state they did not put everything on my sandwich. She was so cold and unresponsive to my complaint. I would never order another Bari sub again. When you order everything it should be everything. I feel they have eliminated the one thing that put them in business, customer service.

This is hands down one of the finest sandwich shops around. The bread is from the bakery next door and is delivered fresh all day. They have a good selection of deli meats and the sandwiches are huge (a nine inch sub is much more satisfying that a foot long from a sub chain). I have brought East Coast migrants here and they claim it's the only place they've found that makes a good sub in Chicago (apparently subs on the East Coast are a big thing...) That the prices are more than reasonable simply seals the deal.
