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).

Stopped in for a quick lunch on a business trip and was very impressed. The sandwiches are unique, tasty, and use very high quality ingredients. If you don't know what to order, don't be afraid to ask the staff what's good. They are super helpful and will point you in the right direction. One caveat: if you don't like spicy... More

After reading all the great reviews on Yelp, I stopped in for a sandwich in the late afternoon after a hectic day of interviewing at Northwestern. I was intrigued by the promise of unique flavors and Banh mi sandwiches, and Soulwich definitely delivered. The store was empty except for me, and the employee was very helpful and polite. I was...

This is a very casual take out-eat in sandwich/salad place that serves wraps, sandwiches and salads with a thai/burmese twist. Plenty of veggie and also meat options. My sandwich wrap was very tasty with big handfuls of fresh cilantro and shredded carrots, a little pork and eggplant. It was delicious. I want to give this restaurant 3 1/2 stars because... More
