Rosie’s Sandwich Stories (Customer Testimonials)

Welcome to something new on our website. Here we will share “sandwich stories” from our customers. Observations. Smiles. Appreciation. Testimonials. After all – we’re all about “The best sandwich in Chicago.”

PeggyCame all the way from Grand Rapids MI for these delicious sandwiches! When you want authentic Italian Beef, definitely come here! The Trifecta was amazing too. I could only eat half at a time! But the staff are the best part! Great, welcoming, friendly group of guys. – SUE O.

Kelly B.This place is AMAZING! Freddy delivered food to us in about 30 minutes to save my starving staff during a long day…the food was top-notch, the ordering process was simplistic, and the food was delicious – from the specialized chips from Michigan, to the delicious perfectly cut sandwiches all topped off with Spumoni ice cream!!!! We will be frequent fliers here from here on out!!!! – Kelly B.
Matthew B.Worked with Fred on a catering order for a graduation party. He made it an amazing experience and was delightful to work with. Was able to place the order just a few days before and still get everything delivered. We got an assortment of deli sandwiches and Italian beef. Deli sandwiches were great and the beef was one of the best I’ve had in Chicago. Would recommend both for catering or just simply stopping by for a sandwich. – Matthew B.

What a phenomenal place. First, the food is on point. Italian beef is the best I had on the north side and the Couch sandwich is insane. Desserts are the perfect touch. Great atmosphere, chairs to hang both inside and out. The daily specials are honestly pretty sweet. Tons of excuses to come back on a regular. Also, glad they are taking card now. Happy to pay a little extra as I don’t always have cash. Love this spot. – Judy C.
Todd R.Had the veggie sandwich the other day…freaking delicious… Not too salty or oily Just perfect and healthy…. Puts the big chains to shame. – Todd R.

Amy B.

Great spot for quality sandwiches.
Bread is unbelievable and the Italian had great quality meats. I’ll be back soon! – Amy B.

Dave W.

Amazing sandwich spot coming from a big sandwich fan. The bread, the meat, the toppings, everything was good 10/10 would recommend. – Dave W.

Judy C.

Awesome place! The owner is always super nice and the food hits the spot.
If you’re in the area, definitely give it a try! – Judy C.

PJI have never had a Rosie’s sandwich. So why write a testimonial? Because I see these gorgeous sandwiches from my old hometown of Chicago… and can taste their deliciousness even from here in New York. And I can tell you that I go to my local sandwich places here with a Rosie’s menu printed out and try to have the guys recreate the food. And they just cannot do it!

Look out Freddy (the owner) – I’m coming. And I am going to try everything on your menu!! – PJ (NYC)

Matthew B.Best sandwich shop around! I had the Triple P (Prosciutto, Roasted Red Peppers & Provolone) and it was delicious! Also met the family that runs the place and they were great people.

Dave W.I happened to be delivering an order to this corporate building and as I walked in the entrance the smell of this sandwich shop stopped me in my tracks it was so good! I had to try it. I got The Sicilian and my expectations were blown away. I had no idea what Muffuletta was, the cashier was nothing but helpful and kind to answer any questions I had. This place is way better than any sandwich place near or far (definitely better than Potbelly or Subway). Must try the cannolis 🔥10/10 will recommend to every person I know!

If you haven’t been to Rosie’s Sidekick, you’re missing out! It’s a small shop with big flavors and sandwiches. Another review said the meat was skimpy – no way! Sandwiches are big and delicious. You HAVE to try the Muffuletta, Italian beef and Meatball sandwiches. Beef and meatballs are homemade – SO good. The Italian is great too! Yum!

Vegetarian options: There are a few vegetarian options – Veggie sandwich, pizza bread (you pick your toppings), eggplant parm and soup. It’s not vegetarian, but they have an Italian tuna sub too if you’re just trying to avoid meat. – Pam A.

AnonymousI ordered the Couch, which is a meatball sandwich. It wasn’t the sloppy mess I usually get.
This sandwich was a work of art. I almost hated to eat it.
Almost. Great sandwich. Heavy on the meat. Will order the rest of the menu soon! – Anonymous

Andrew K

This is the best deli sandwich I’ve had in a long long time. Generous amount of meat, the best bang for your buck no doubt in Logan. Extremely friendly staff greeted me like family the moment I walked in. We need more “Mom and Pop” places like this! Will be back again! – Andrew K.

We ordered sub sandwiches for my wedding this past weekend!! Each sandwich was carefully assembled, elevating the humble sub sandwich to a gourmet experience. I can’t wait to go back!!!

Adriana B.

The sandwiches are much more than generous. Because I don’t eat meat I always get the veggie sub. You get a HUGE SANDWICH, and it’s a custom, carefully handcrafted piece of real food wrapped in a paper that will barely contain its spillover as you eat it (some of them are a little messy to eat in a medieval-food-orgyish kind of way).

Got the Sicilian muffaletto and it was phenomenal. The place is hidden away in an office building but definitely worth going to find it. The manager was really friendly and helped me with good recommendations. Will def go again

Jake C.


A good Italian sandwich is a thing of beauty. The Italian Deluxe sandwich at Rosie’s Sidekick was exceptional! The sandwich was outstanding and the manager, Frank, was super friendly and makes you feel right at home.
