While visiting Chicago on vacation, we ate the LaSalle and Wacker location. We had paid 45.00 for tour bus tickets which included a coupon for a free cookie with a purchase. We were refused use of the coupon since my sister paid foru our meals. We had eaten breakfast at this location for 2 days and spent approximately 40 dollars between the 3 of us. That's an average of 80 dollars over the 2 day period between the 3 of us and were refusing us a cookie. Realizing they had no basis for refusal since the coupon made no mention of this "policy", they relented. The cookie was good, but the service sucked. I'll try not to hold it against the citizens of Chicago.
this business has been advertised on the news as the place to go for people who are hurt by the economy.... another words, get a hot soup & sandwich for what you can afford. I have stood behind a person with designer clothes who paid a quarter for a full meal!!! No Wonder businesses like this have a hard time giving to those who are poor and disabled!!! IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO PAY FULL PRICE, THEN PAY IT!!!!!! Remember there are people who are noticing you, even if you don't believe in God, the Devil believes in you!!
The pita pit is my new favorite stop for quick, healthy, and affordable lunch. I order the whole wheat pita topped with garlic hummus, sprouts, tomato, avocado, and provolone. It's the perfect blend of flavors and textures. The pita is wrapped up for to go orders, much the same way a sub sandwich is, making it a truly easy meal to eat on-the-go. The service was quick; the employees friendly; and the atmosphere was clean and enjoyable to be in. I highly recommend it!
I come here quite regularly when I'm in the mood for sandwiches. My favs are the meatball and turkey bre*st. I have a soft spot for the Oreo shake, too. Like others have mentioned, there is an actual parking lot, which is nice. The staff has always been friendly to me. The price is affordable (it's a sandwich chain, not fine dining). It gets 4 stars because it's close to home, which is convenient.
Clean smooth ride easy 30 minute ride into Downtown Chicago. We have taken the kids to the various museum from the Southside of Chicago work the trip. Best part is taking pictures at the stunningly beautiful old world station ( scene of the untouchable) . Recommend to buy tickets as soon as you get off so that on your return you are not waiting in line with the rush hour crowds.
I really enjoyed this Potbelly's. It's big and a bit different than some of the others. The outside has a big area to eat, and it looks like it was transformed from possibly a gas station. Some of the old pillars are still there giving it a unique look. The food was good, and the service was excellent. Everyone there wanted to make sure I had a good experience.
aw pacific subs is awesome....its not only subs its everything GYROS, CHICKEN NUGGETS, CHEESE FRYS, CHEESEBURGERS, FISH, everything you can think of. When i first went in there i questioned if it was going to be good...i don't regret it...i love it and would go there every day if i had money....thank you pacific sub... see ya next time for my food
The panini's are fantastic... also yummy is the tomato basil soup, and chicken tortilla soup... great portions, although it's not cheap, it is definitely worth the money, as the ingredients are more high end than your typical fast food places downtown... Go for a terrific lunch or breakfast, and don't forget to try a dessert as well!
My family has been eating subs from Hero's forever (at least 30 years). Great subs, great staff. Small, simple sub shop that makes tasty sandwiches. Why would you eat at any of the nearby chain restaurants when you can get a sub at Hero's. Once you've been to Hero's you will come back and will recommend this place to friends.
