Latest Fraboni's Italian Specialties and Delicatessen news and reviews
JM ate the turkey and cheddar sub with an IBC rootbeer.
Nichole ate the small Italian sub and some artichoke salad.
The bill was $19, or $9.50/person, plus tip.
JM and Nichole both gave Fraboni's an A- (see our grading rubric).
If we lived within walking distance, we'd probably go to Fraboni's every day. Their deli case is amazing, and we hear their Monona location is even more so.
JM's meal was fresh and tasty even though the quantity of bread was a little overwhelming. Considering the sandwich had been made hours earlier, he wondered just how fresh their stuff was. He'd nip back for a sandwich anytime.
He also observed that IBC root beer has been around for an awful long time. Then he remembered that several root beers date to 1919 (IBC, A&W, 1919 [duh]). We never made the connection, but apparently Prohibition was the root (beer) cause.
Nichole wonders if she can ever eat a Cousins sub again after tasting the real deal. Yum!
Overall, we found Fraboni's a charming store with helpful staff.
