Subs are outstanding and they are just great with variety in selection....WELL DONE! They always have 3 soups to choose from as well as freshly baked cookies for dessert.

This is my daughter's favorite place to get a sub! The staff know her by name and when I call in her order, I just say it's for Dorothy, and they know just how she likes it!! I appreciate that, and have bought gift certificates for her for Christmas, knowing she will enjoy them!

VERY skimpy amount of meat on the sandwich. Bread was thick and dry...making sandwich even more disappointing. Oh, did I mention...food was OVER PRICED!. Probably won't go back.

Best meatball Sub in town. The breads excellent with great tasting cheese melted over the meatballs. Pickle spear ads a nice touch.

Casual deli with good selection of soups, salads and sandwiches. Service is fast and friendly. The order line can be a bit long right at noon, but it moves fast and the kitchen gets orders out quickly.

Little Chicago is a nice alternative when you don't want to go to that other sub sandwich place. The location means it gets super busy at lunch time as there are few options for downtown workers who want to walk to where they are eating. Keep this in mind and go either just before or after the standard lunch rush.... More

Tried to beat the lunchtime rush with an 11:15 arrival. Staff seemed annoyed at the opportunity to serve a new customer. Asked the guy at the counter how the Ruben Sandwich was. He said "OK". Turns out that he was overstating the quality by quite a lot. They served up a sandwich made from supermarket lunch meat from the plastic... More

I loved Little Chicago Deli back in the 1980's. They delivered all over the place, even to Dakota City, NE as they had a store in South Sioux City. It's too bad they only cater to the downtown lunch crowd nowadays.

The sandwiches are delicious. While the subs are the kind you can get at places like Subway, there are fresher and much better tasting. The biggest complaint is the reducedhours. I understand that it is downtown and caters to the week day lunch crowd, but I wish it was still open for dinner as well.

this place is always good. Always fair, and usually busy as well, but worth it. I can't say there's a better sub shop in town
