The old school vibe at this corner shop isn’t manufactured—the Graziano family has been doing its thing here since 1937. While it’s hard to go wrong with any of their sandwiches, the Mr. G ($9.25)—prosciutto, salami and sopressata, with biting aged provolone and marinated artichokes tucked into crackly-crisp bread anointed with hot oil and truffle mustard vinaigrette—claims house specialty status for a reason.

Graziano has the best subs in Chicago. The Italian, American, Turkey and Mr. G are all delicious in their own way. You can't go wrong with any of them and if you want some heat add some of their own giardinera. The hot is just hot enough without overpowering the sandwich.
I recommend letting the sandwich sit for awhile before eating so all the flavors can marry up.
