“Bob-O-Rinos”: Voted Chicago’s Best Submarine

By Desiray Cordova’21

Bob-O-Rinos located on 3435 N. Central Ave. was voted “Chicago’s Best Submarine.” It is a fantastic family owned restaurant that is quite delightful due to their wonderful food, prideful decor, and excellent service. 

Their food is, personally, one of my favorites because of their homemade meals, as there is nothing better than a homemade meal. Like mentioned, they have the best submarine sandwiches with different choices meats and breads. My personal favorite is the roast beef submarine with everything. The roast beef sub costs $5.75 for a small and $6.75 for a large. 

They also have an amazing choice of soups depending on the day of the week. For example, cream of potato, beef barely, chicken noodle, and many more!!!! And again they are homemade.

Throughout the restaurant they have hung portraits of Chicago and its beautiful attractions along with lots of sports merch like the Chicago Cubs, and the Chicago White Soxs. Their decor is plain and simple, but its suits the restaurant well. The inside is very antique to me and very warm giving it a very calm and peaceful feel. Especially when they play old school music. 

The thing that stands out to me the most is their excellent service. They are nice people with good hearts that have patience and greet you nicely when you come in. They have no problem explaining what the items on the menu are, and they make sure to check up on you to make sure you’re enjoying  your meal. I would highly recommend this place because it is very convenient for a quick bite.
