Roscoe Village has a landmark, and its Costello's. Most people when you ask them if they have ever been to Roscoe Village they say, yeah that have that killer sandwhich shop there!!

I ate there before I moved to RV and years later when I moved across the street from it, it became a staple in my diet for sure!

I usually get the italian since I am a creature of habit, but all of their sandwhiches are top notch and reasonably priced too!

The pasta salads are ok, nothing great but I go there for the sandwhiches.

Pros: Italian Subs and Wraps

Cons: Sides are weak

I gotta tell you, I want to like this place because i live so close to it...I cant call the sandwich bad because there is not enough meat in the sandwich to even judge. I just had a smokin turk, and I swear to God it was 98% bread and lettuce and 2% turkey. I think the owners must be so cheap and so worried about the bottom line, they wont even put turkey in a turkey sandwich. The only thing that will save them is the Rosco Location. The foot traffic is crazy, so they will do fine even though the place it mediocre at best. Save your money, even subway (yuk) is better, and that ain't sayin much.

Pros: good location, i guess

Cons: No meat in the sandwich, all dressing and bread

This is such a great sandwich shop! Fun, good ambiance, the service is very friendly, and they have a huge variety of sandwiches. I LOVE the Turkey Foccacia, the Turkey Reuben, and the Smokin' Turk (can't tell I like turkey, eh). But the Horseradish Roast Beef is pretty awesome too. Good side dishes. It's nice to sit out on their back yard patio during warm weather. You can also get a milkshake!

Pros: Best sandwiches anywhere

Cons: small dining room

.

I had this delivered and it arrived on time and was still warm when it did, suprising because I live about as far as you can in their delivery area. The best part about this place is its originality, you can eat a sandwich anywhere but they came up with some pretty good varieties on sandwiches and their sides are very unique. Decent price for what you get in the city. I will be ordering from here again.

Pros: One of a kind sandwiches

Cons: Only two locations

.

I ordered a Turkey Pastrami.....and the sandwich had a decent taste but the problem was they there was only 2 slices of Turkey Pastrami. If you want to pay $6 for a kraut sandwhich this is the place. Also i had a side of potatoes and they were dry. Not Good at All.

Costello's is basically your typical neighborhood sandwhich joint, but the twist is they offer a variety of side dishes to go with your sandwich. They offer several nice variations of vegetarian sandwiches, with sprouts, cucumbers, humus, and the like, but what spoils it for me is their below-par bread. To me, it basically tastes like it comes straight out of a bag from the grocery store. I usually appreciate a more gourmet sandwich bread. However, they offer both baked and unbaked subs and have a huge selection of sandwiches, and their sides do stand out: mashed potatoes, spicy mac and cheese, potato salad, as well as standards like chips and pretzles. Costello's is an easy place to stop in and enjoy a quick sandwich!

I had seen this place several times while out shopping. Finally, I stopped in and have become a regular. Sandwiches are some of the best and service is very nice. What a great vallue too. I am now a regular customer. Highly recommended for your sandwich craving...forget Subway.

I recommend the hot ones, especially the Smokin' Turk'. I can't get enough of this place. Incredible. Puts PotBelly's to shame.

Pros: Sandwich, EVERYTHING

.

Both the Italian Grinder and the Pepper Turkey sandwich are the best on this entire planet! This place is always crowded, but the line moves fast and it is really pleasant to eat on the back patio..you gotta try it!

The food here is second to absolutely none when you are craving a fresh sandwich with the works. Fresh ingredients served toasty warm are the food cravings are made of.
I highly recommend this place to all!
