The Gym Shoe/Jim Shoe Sandwich:  Another Chicago Original

Chicago is a place with an extremely rich culinary history.  So many good foods have come from the Windy City:  Chicago Hot Links, Deep Dish Pizza, Stuffed Pizza, Pizza Puffs, Chicago-Style Hotdogs, Garrett's Popcorn, Maxwell Street Polish Sausages, Twinkies, and so on.  One more tasty morsel to add to that illustrious list is the Gym Shoe (Jim Shoe) Sandwich!

The Gym Shoe is a submarine sandwich with roast beef, corned beef, gyro meat, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese, giardiniera and gyro sauce (Tzatziki sauce).  I didn't know anything about the sandwich until I saw it featured on a "Chicago's Best" episode.  They recommended Stony Sub on 84th & Stony Island in Chicago; but I was lucky enough to find a place in my neighborhood that makes it:  Sandwich Castle 2458 W. State St., Burnham, Illinois (708) 862-8050. 
 
Sandwich Castle serves theirs with mustard and mayo, so I asked for gyro sauce as a substitute.  It also didn't come with giardiniera peppers; but, I'm sure I could've asked for some.  In any event, it was VERY GOOD!  And, a large Gym Shoe sub with fries was less than $7!  I'm not even a big submarine sandwich eater, and I already want more!  If you haven't tasted a "Gym Shoe" then you definitely want to put it on your gastric bucket list!
