“Love this store”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

We shopped at the Mariano’s on East Benton practically every day during our five-day trip to Chicago, because it was super convenient to the condo we rented. Love this store! They have everything you need, want, and more, and at very reasonable prices. It’s great for travelers not wishing to dine out every day, nor cook. This location has a roof top deck, as well as indoor seating. The salad bar and hot foods bar are several dollars less than the Whole Foods and Wegman’s in our area (East Coast), but the quality is on par. I heard the hot foods bar serves breakfast from 6:00am until 9:00am. They even have a true sit-down sushi bar, but you can grab some already prepared or order for take-out. The sushi is really good. Had a wonderful custom made wrap at the sandwich counter. They also have a pasta/pizza station, along with a great deli. Best part – the gelato counter. Don’t think you will find gelato this good for the price anywhere!

“Santos & Santos make the best Sushi!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

I love the sushi! Even more I love the friendly attitudes of Santos & Santos! They make fresh California Infused sushi. The price and the ambiance are worth it....
Thank you for making such great sushi!

“Lots on offer”
Reviewed 8 September 2013

Found this after having breakfast at nearby Eggy's diner. Does take out/eat in hot food, salads etc but is actually one of the best supermarkets I've ever come across. Think (if you're from the UK) an enormous 2 floor Waitrose. We had great fun picking up some American treats and toiletries to take home.There's an amazing selection of wine too. We also bought fresh fruit to take back for lunch. Almost made us wish we were self-catering....Almost!

“Wonderful new option in Chicago!”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Free parking, great fresh food at great prices. My kids especially loved the cookies and sushi. All of the store brands I have tried have been wonderful lower cost options.
