Editorial Review of Uncle Abe's Deli

Thanks to President Lincoln, Abe is a name that is universally associated with honesty, and you can't help but get a sense of that when polishing off a sub from Uncle Abe's. Abe and his able staff give your money's worth, and then some. The menu is simple, with 20 different sandwich fillers, 10 bread choices and a smattering of salads and soups, which are rotated in and out daily. But what it lacks in complexity, Abe's makes up for with value. The sandwiches, most of which cost less than $7, are gigantic, and if you order them to go, the kitchen will throw in a free bowl of soup. Abe's is housed within Marquette Inn, a dimly lit diner and cocktail bar at the corner of Adams and Franklin. This makes it the ideal place for a relaxing summer Friday: Parlay a long lunch at Abe's into an early happy hour at Marquette's and hope the boss doesn't miss you.

Average cost: <$10
