Traveling by submarine is the ideal way to explore the ocean, while commuting by submarine sandwich is the best way to explain the sea of mustard stains on your pants. Survey the sub's tastier functions with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of sandwiches, burgers, and more at Grub Club in Niles.
Grub Club's sandwich savants quell tummy mumblings by creating an extensive menu of made-to-order sandwiches and burgers loaded with fresh ingredients. Dine like English aristocracy with a 12-inch Sir Anthony sub ($6.55) and its breadbasket-bursting mound of savory grilled steak and chicken topped with provolone, onions, mushrooms, and steak sauce, or build your own creation with a choice of two meats, one cheese, toppings, and dressing ($4 for 6", $9 for 16"). Half-pound burgers proudly sate even the most elephantine cravings, including the ultramacho Holy Cow ($7.25) and its exclamation-inducing combo of pepper jack, jalapeño cheddar, and XX hot sauce. Flip a nine-sided die to decide which sauce to request on your chicken wings ($5.95 for 12), with tantalizing options that include butter garlic, hot ranch, and barbecue.
Grub Club's décor showcases wall-mounted lamppost fixtures and a painting of the eatery's caterpillar mascot. The restaurant is also the home of monster-burger and hot-wings challenges, which pit ravenous appetites against the clock in timed eating contests. Each winner, like the president after his inauguration, receives a free meal, a souvenir T-shirt, and a photograph on the Wall of Fame.
