Top pick: Grab an Italian Stallion, which, during the pandemic, is available pre-made and wrapped in a cooler case. When it’s safe again, Jimmy’s sandwiches may be made to order again, but for now, the pre-prepared versions are still as satisfying as ever.
The downside: Saturday afternoons at Jimmy’s get wild as hundreds of sandwich-craving customers descend. If you need to get some grocery shopping done, it’s better to stop by on a weekday.
Fun fact: The DiCarlo family has owned Jimmy’s since 1966, although the store only pivoted to its current all-Italian format in 2005, in a remodel that was necessitated by a fire.
