This Addison Italian Deli makes My Favorite Italian Sub Sandwich in Illinois

Chicago Food King

I have been on a personal journey as of late. I have been looking for the best Italian sub in the Chicagoland area. I have always had a favorite which was the Alpine Sub in Elmwood Park. I think I have found a new king of the best Italian sub in the Chicagoland area.

The name of the sub shop is Serino Italian Deli in Addison.

The deli has been in business for over 22 years. It is a family run with all original recipes. The family prides itself on making a multitude of Italian specialties. The specialties include pasta, sandwiches, and pizza.

All of the other items in this small deli looked delicious, but I was on a mission to try just their Italian sub.

Their famous Italian sub consists of Mortadella, capicola, genoa salami, and provolone cheese. I personally like to also add hot Giardiniera.

When I first opened up this massive 12-inch submarine masterpiece I was shocked at how packed it was. The amount of lunch meat and the difference of the sandwich overall size trumps that of my favorite sub shop Alpine sub.

The taste is unbelievable. When I take a bite it feels hearty. The taste is so authentic with the spicy giardiniera adding to all of the salty flavors of the Italian meats. The provolone that they use is more on the sharp side, but it also works so well.

I have now gone to Serino’s two times in the last week. I am now addicted to their subs.

The owner is so friendly every time I walk in. He is the first person I am greeted by as he takes my order.

He always has a smile on his face and when I say that I want the Italian sub he asks if I want everything on it and with hot giardiniera. I tell him that is exactly how I want it and he always replies with the true Italian way.

If you come to Serino’s around lunchtime be prepared to possibly wait because it gets quite busy. The nice thing is they do have ample communal seating with large tables set up to sit at while you wait or eat.

I am excited to try the other items they have to offer when I get more time on my next visit. Everything else they offer looks so good.

I give Serino’s a rating of 9 out of 10. This is definitely a place that you need to check out if you are looking for a great Italian deli with a great sandwich.
