Boloney's Sandwich ShopBarrington | Website
In the age of mega chains, this quick-serve family-owned sandwich shop bubbles with personality. Opened in 1981, it offers hearty two-fisted sandwiches rubens, turkey salad and the San Diego (turkey, cucumbers, tomatoes alfalfa sprouts and American cheese) and the Bat-Man-Wich (ham, muenster, tomato, sprouts & Italian dressing). Their famous turkey salad, rife with chunks of bird and peas, is super delish while the egg salad has its share of rabid fans. It also offers a limited selection of sliced deli meat by the pound. Peruse the latest magazines to if you're dining alone - the seating spills over into the movie theater lobby during the day. Bonus to those going to the historic, 700-seat Catlow movie theater (and sharing the same owners) next door: When show time arrives, order anything from the deli menu or a bag of plain, cheese or caramel popcorn for a fraction of what other movie theaters charge.
