3/25/05 | Fontano’s Chicago Subs
[ Currently Eating: Toast ]
Denver Post columnist Kristen Browning-Blas wrote up something on a place called Fontano’s in Denver that sells cheap subs. Apparently they are really authentic or something. Here is a quote:
For those who haven’t experienced the squishy wonder of oregano-bathed roast beef and grilled peppers on a jus-soaked baguette, Fontano’s offers an authentic introduction … With prosciuttini, capicola (gabagool, if you’re Tony Soprano), Genoa salami and provolone, the Wiseguy keeps it in the family ($5 for a 6-inch, $6.35, 8-inch, $7.85, 10-inch, same for almost all sandwiches on the menu).
Authentic sub eating? Maybe. Cheap Eats? Probably not. Sounds like another syndrome of “homestyle” sandwiches for yuppies. You can get a 6-inch sub for much cheaper at Quizno’s, Subway, or any number of family owned Italian Delis. Some places will even throw in the drink.
Cheap Eats Score: 3/10
