In a city dominated by Potbelly and Jimmy John’s, you’ve got to wonder, what’s a guy thinking to open a rogue sub shop? Well, after trying this place, we have an idea: He’s thinking if the sandwiches are made with Thumann’s meat on doughy Gonnella bread, and if the walls are covered in Chicago sports and food memorabilia, and if he oversees every aspect of the operation with the watchful eyes of a dad checking on his children (as he was when we visited), then maybe he can wean Lincoln Park off the Starfruit next door and onto meat-loaded Zach Attacks (turkey, roast beef, red onion and Dijon) and scoops of Bobtail’s chocolate-pretzel ice cream.
