Snarf’s Sandwiches just opened up a new location in Lincoln Park right by DePaul University Campus. The sandwich shop is originally from Boulder, Colorado, but have locations in Denver, Chicago, St. Louis and Austin, Texas. Snarf’s DePaul is now their fourth location in Chicago and is located right at 955 W Webster Ave.
Recently, we were invited to check out their newly opened spot and find out more about Snarf’s and their menu offerings. The sandwich shop has a nice casual and fun atmosphere with its pop colors and gentle lighting – kind of like a cartoony diner. They have a nice variety of sandwiches along with salads and daily soups, displayed clearly and with emphasis on the large menu board.
You’ll find familiar items like Italian sandwich, BLT, ham and cheese, and tuna melts, as well as specialty ones like prime rib and rotisserie Chicken, and NY steak. There’s also vegetarian sandwich options available like portabello, avocado and sprouts, and eggplant parmesan. All sandwiches have cheese, but you can always ask for it to be excluded. You can choose from white, wheat, or gluten-free bread. There’s a nice list of toppings to pick from too. You can also pick up a cookie or brownie, and there’s ice cream too!
So other than the whimsy decor, I was curious to find out what makes a Snarf’s sandwich a Snarf’s sandwich? For one, they are warm oven toasted sandwiches. And if you like, they will offer to hollow out the loaf a bit to make room for the ingredients and fillings too. I ordered a turkey sandwich (no cheese) with giardiniera peppers, pickles, sprouts, mushrooms, and avocado. Their bread loaf is pretty good with a nice balance of light and crusty. Their giardiniera peppers are tangy and flavorful and really added a nice punch to the sandwich.
With that said, LookyTasty is happy to collaborate with Snarf’s Sandwiches in their Sammies for Service charity event at their DePaul location. Now through the end of February, Snarf’s will donate $1 for each sandwich sold at their new location to PAWS Chicago. All you have to do is mention LookyTasty when placing your order. PAWS Chicago is a no-kill animal shelter that promotes animal welfare and raise awareness about homeless animals through education and outreach, along with animal adoptions and free/low-cost spay and neuter clinics.
