The Best Subs in Oak Lawn: You Decide

Help us decide who serves up the best subs in town.

It’s time for another Chowdown Showdown, our weekly feature that will not only give you great ideas on where to eat, but will allow you to tell everyone why your favorite restaurant is the best. 

The Chowdown Showdown pits PalosEvergreen Park and Oak Lawn restaurants against each other to decide who makes a particular dish best. Before the competition starts, we need your ideas on who our Oak Lawn representative should be. 


This week's feature focuses in on submarine sandwiches, those perfectly balanced concoctions of meat, cheese, bread and veggies. We want you to tell us who puts together the best example of this delicacy. The local winner will then go on to face Palos and Evergreen Park.

While you are free to leave reviews and comments in support of chains like and , it is local spots that we are most interested in and the winner will reflect that. 

How to Vote

There are three ways to vote for your favorite.

  1. Leave a comment on this article and tell us your pick and why you think they are the best. 
  2. Find your pick in our Oak Lawn Directory and leave a review and tell the world just how good their sandwiches are. 
  3. Go to the Oak Lawn Patch Facebook Page and tell us your pick. 

Get your votes in by Monday at 10 a.m. We will announce the winner and share the results of our taste test on Wednesday.

I think Peppos at 10303 South Roberts Road Palos Hills, IL 60465 has the best sub sandwiches. The "guts" are awesome!

Fontanos on 95 th in Beverly for a authentic Italian sub. All the rest are generic.

Sub options in OL are kinda limited. I guess I'll go with Palermo's. They make a decent sub with Salami, Cappicola & Ham with Mozzarella cheese baked on French bread.

Thanks for these suggestions. I think corporate America has co-opted the submarine sandwich.

I think you may be thinking about Peppo's. It use to be at 107th and Roberts is now located at 103rd and Roberts
