Where we've featured it
This classic Italian sub spot holds a special place in our hearts. During our former life, we used to eat at Fontano’s minimum once a week. Our usual location on Jackson St. has since moved to fancier digs around the corner on Michigan Ave., but you can still count on an excellent, no frills sandwich on the cheap.
Walking along Michigan Avenue in front of Millennium and Grant Park can be the stuff nightmares are made of. Too many people, too many cars, you can't cross the street, and why are these people walking so slow? Don't get caught in that position when you're hungry, because it'll be even worse. Stop at Fontano's and get a quality sub full of giardiniera peppers instead.
Fontano’s is one of our personal favorites for a quick sandwich. It must have been a favorite of some others too, because Fontano’s traded in their hole-in-the wall space on Jackson for some nicer digs on Michigan Ave. The sandwiches are still great, and that’s all that counts. Make sure to top whatever you’re eating with mass quantities of giardiniera.
