This place makes great subs that are huge. I love the Launcher with extra pickles and lettuce. The bread is nice and soft. There are often Groupon coupons for a great deal.

This place is like crack to locals. If you move away, you crave it! Great subs, salads, dessert treats and soft serve ice cream. Hard working crew that have been with Tony forever. Ask for a loyalty punch card...

Great subs, burgers, and soft serve. The surroundings are unimpressive, but service is fast and consistent.

Tony's makes a good sub sandwich for the northern subursb. It's not like Taylor street, Elwood park or melrose park subs, but it's good. One reason why is the bread... They use gonnola bread which is real Italian bread, you can taste the difference. Make sure you get a groupon type of deal ...it cuts the sandwich price in half... More

Ordered a 1/2 sub, roast beef & provolone to go, PLAIN. Got home and found a sloppy RB WITH XXX ONIONS & CUCUMBERS - NO PROVOLONE. Served with an XXX large side of bad attitude by an employee who obviously doesn't give a damn. NOT THE FIRST TIME BUT DEFINETLY THE LAST TIME. Jimmy Johns & Subway - I'm coming... More

Tony's {just south of Deerfield High School on the Waukegan Road} has been around for decades. Their go-to offering - at least in my book, is their Italian-beef/Italian-sausage combination sandwich {which you can get wet or dry, with or without either sweet-peppers or a chopped, mildly-hot giardiniera}. Of course, they offer other subs and salads too, as well as soft-serve... More

Great, well priced sandwiches. Lots of sandwich options with huge variety of chips to go with it. Meatball is a favorite of ours, but sandwich meat and tuna are good as well. Kids love the soft serve ice cream and fries too.

hmmm. Only six reviews in seven years? For a place that's been around for decades? Perhaps reviewers come to this page; read what's already been written; and think they have nothing to add. Not I. I can add that the menu offers WAY more than subs, so don't be misled by the name of the place. The french fries are... More
