Making a good sandwich, like removing a child’s head from between stair balusters, requires delicate handling and a lot of mayonnaise. Marvel at skilled condiment usage with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of sandwiches, burgers, and hot dogs at Front Page Deli in Oak Park.
Stacked with Sy Ginsberg meats and served with homemade kettle chips, Front Page Deli's lineup of 22 newspaper-themed sandwiches cures both lunch and dinner cravings. The Headliner ($5.99 for a half, $7.99 for a regular) slips corned beef and swiss cheese onto mustard-slathered halves of an onion roll, and rye bread cushions the Authority's layers of hot brisket roast beef, coleslaw, and russian dressing. Diners can satiate freshwater appetites or pet orcas weaned on people food with the Weekend sandwich, which tops deep-fried cod and tartar sauce with lettuce, tomato, and american cheese. Patrons can plunge forks into eight specialty salads ($6.99 for a small, $8.99 for a large) such as the caesar and Baby Blue, or gussy up all-beef hot dogs with chili cheese, onions, and mustard ($3.49). Burgers ($4.99–$7.99) marshal an entourage of steak fries, and glass bottles of Michigan-made sodas ($1.98) drain swiftly for onsite speed rounds of model-ship building.
