Time Out says

If you’ve ever passed by this Lincoln Park sandwich shop, you’ve probably assumed it’s a chain. Well, you’re right and you’re wrong. At the moment, this is the only location, and once you get inside, you’ll see that some of the sandwiches pay homage to our lovely city (not that we have any idea what a ham-and-roast-beef sandwich has to do with its moniker, The Windy City). What you’ll also see inside are bags of Uncle Ben’s stuffing (the better to make the Thanksgiving-inspired Pilgrim sandwich with) and Ghirardelli brownie mix (nothing wrong with that). Bite into the soft, doughy bread, though, and it’s hard not to be reminded of Jimmy Johns.
