Melt - 1840 N. Damen Avenue - Bucktown

Although this small casual spot feels a little more like a school room than a restaurant, Melt offers a wide variety of gourmet sandwiches and soup. They can even serve up gluten-free bread and dairy-free cheese. Which sandwich was picked as a favorite? The Istanbul: olive oil, sea salt ciabatta with roasted turkey breast, pepper jack cheese, smoked gouda, cucumber and fig compote. What is not to like about that?

Potbellys – 1625 N. Damen Avenue Bucktown

Potbelly’s is certainly known for their sandwiches and it doesn’t hurt that they’re toasted and served warm. With that in mind, the Vegetarian Potbelly’s sandwich served on wheat was a favorite mentioned our poll.  The Vegetarian includes: mushrooms, Swiss, Provolone and American Cheese.



Santullo's Eatery – 1943 W. North Avenue - Wicker Park

Santullo's is generally known for their delicious pizza but there's a gem of a sandwich in this casual comfy Wicker Park staple. The Spicy Chicken Sando is the perfect sandwich for those who want a little extra kick in their lunch. This sandwich is spicy and we'd recommend the pretzel roll. You'll also receive your sandwich served with a side of good old-fashioned rock n roll or metal. Santullo's Spicy Chicken Sando.



Sultan's Market 2057 W. North Avenue - Wicker Park

A neighborhood staple. Sultan's Market offers a variety of Middle Eastern favorites like falafel, grape leaves, wraps and more. The Chicken Shawerma wrap here gets 2 thumbs up. The sandwich is fresh and flavorful and the price is right. Service is quick and the staff are friendly. For details about Sultan's Market.



Wicker Basket Cafe - 2113 W. Division Street - Wicker Park

A family owned business specializing in coffee, salads and gourmet sandwiches, Wicker Basket Cafe offers up a delicious veggie option that features a warm eggplant parmesan sandwich which includes toasted bread and breaded slices of eggplant in tomato sauce. Hits the spot and only $6.95. A definite must-try. We also loved the Chicken Panini. Lots of great options here tucked away on the West end of Division Street at Wicker Basket Cafe.
