Time Out Chicago- The 'wich is back: Second course
Never has a sandwich been more aptly named. In addition to salami, capicola, ham and provolone, Costello's piles french fries and cole slaw (and tomato slices for the health-conscious) between two slices of toasted sub roll, making this the perfect sandwich for people who enjoy side dishes, but think it takes too much time to eat them. Though saddled with an ugly name, the fries and slaw make for a concoction that drips with sweetness. Costello's brags on its "baked" sandwiches, which makes sense since this one cures us of the munchies every time.
Chicago Reader- review
This neighborhood sandwich shop run by siblings Lisa and Christopher Costello serves relatively inexpensive, hearty fare in Roscoe Village. Homemade soups change every day or two and are offered alongside generously stuffed sandwiches such as the Italian Grinder and the Smokin' Turk. Raters appreciate the several vegetarian options and the side dishes. The $8-$9 deluxe meal special includes a sandwich, chips, a side, and a medium drink. In the summer, seating includes both an inviting back patio and a smaller sidewalk cafe.
metromix chicago- review
During the lunch hour and especially on weekends, this sandwich shop can get so crowded it's often standing room only. If the noisy, lively atmosphere isn't your thing, get your gourmet baked sandwich and homemade side to go. Costello also has a variety of garden and pasta salads, including the popular artichoke pasta and pineapple tuna salad. A house favorite is the chipotle mac n' cheese, a spicy dish made with rotini pasta.
