Unique and Amazing Sandwiches

I tried Soulwich for the first time today and thought it was tremendous. The BBQ pork sandwich is seriously one of the best I've had, a unique combination of spices, textures and flavors. The pork is tender, the veggies are crisp, and the spices and sauce give it all a little kick. The bread is... read more

The Indonesian barbecue pork sandwich was out of this world! I'm a person who is hard to impress when it comes to my food, but wow, at soulwich I am seriously impressed! This sandwich had the most fresh crispy flaky bun (kind of French roll) and a sauce that was perfectly layered with the tender pork in every single bite.... More

Four of us went in for lunch and I have to say that it was very tasty. We had different items but they were all great. The people were nice, the place was clean, and the food was great. What else is there to say?

Worth a trip to Evanston for a Soulwich taste experience. Clean, honest, creative, tasty, organic (when available) food. The owners are obviously proud of their food and have their "souls" behind delivering a high quality, brilliantly spiced, inexpensive,"fast" meal.

In the heart of downtown Evanston resides a refreshing change in fast food. Soulwich was created by the owner’s prior Singapore-living experience. He or she was inspired to combine the food cultures of Chinese, Malay, Indian, Indonesia and Thai and translate that into a reasonably priced sandwich and salad “fast food” experience. While the restaurant doesn’t have those cultures strongly... More

Who knew Asian sandwiches were so delicious? The bread is more puffy than a pita, and perfectly holds all of the ingredients together. They have lots of flavorful vegetarian and vegan options, too. You pick your sandwich, then select what protein you want, pork, chicken, steak or veggie. The Indonesian Ginger BBQ Sandwich with pork was excellent. Prices are very... More

I was in Evanston for a professional conference and needed to grab a quick bite to eat in between presentations. This place has tasty, unique sandwiches at a reasonable price. I would highly recommend stopping in to this no-nonsense sandwich shop for some great food!

One of my go-to places for carry out lunch. I'm probably there twice a month. My favorite is the BBQ with pork. I've tried most everything on the menu and it's all delicious and fresh. But skip the coleslaw (totally forgettable) and get chips (home made and terriffic).
