I have a disability that most can not see and thus requires me to have a service dog, at first she was questioned and I thought here we go again.. my travel had been challenging already. When the staff realized she indeed was a service dog immediately they apologized and was willing to admit that they were not as trained... More

I don't eat many sandwiches, but it was late and we were hungry. I thought I would splurge my diet while in Chicago. We ate at the shop in the Gold Coast area. So forgettable. My friend eats a lot of sandwiches, she had the tuna and proclaimed it the worst sandwich she ever had. Unless your drunk and desperate,... More

This restaurant has the worst meats. Jellied full of fat. Definitely not for anyone trying to watch their weight or living a healthy lifestyle. All that bread just bulks you up, and I don't mean that in a muscle building way. It takes a long time to burn off those starchy carbs. I ate there once and wont go back.... More

If you are on vacation and have never been to Jimmy John's give it a try. It is better than subway but really along the same lines. Jimmy John's always seems so much cleaner to me than Subway's. The bread is nicer; it does not seem like it is pumped with air. The meat seems fresher and is not pre-portioned.... More

My son and I used the location in the Nordstrom's by the Conrad hotel. JJ started in Illinois so it was nice to go to one there. Opened early and stayed open late.

I've had Jimmy John's before in Georgia and didn't particularly care for it...it seemed to taste better in Chicago though. And they were opened later than the surrounding food places so that's a plus.

Average sandwich. We couldn't get into Jersey Mike's, 2 doors away because it was packed and we were on a schedule. Had no problem getting into Jimmy John's. I guess that speaks for itself.

Neighbourhood Profile
Magnificent Mile
Over 400 stores pack the concrete along Michigan Avenue, the eight-block stretch known as Magnificent Mile. This area between Oak Avenue and the Chicago River is more a shopping paradise than a full-out neighborhood. For prime upscale shopping, this is the place to go. It’s busy, energetic, and packed with shoppers. You'll also find hundreds of restaurants and dozens of hotels, all on the mid- to high-end scale. Some of the city’s most iconic buildings like the Wrigley Building, John Hancock Center and other architectural marvels define the magnificence of this neighborhood.
