Best egg salad in town! Have gone here for over 20 years and just as good. Portions are huge! You can share or fill a hungry appetite.

First visit to old Baloney's since renovation to Showtime. Have been coming here since 1975 or thereabouts. Menu not very good compared to old Baloneys. No soup. Food ok but pricey, as was Baloneys, but portion size cut in half. Picture says it all. Noon...More

Now called Showtime, similar menu (tho way shorter) but will have beer and wine soon as well. Not actually eaten here as new venue. Hope it's as good as Boloney's was.

Very old sandwich shop attached to the Barrington theater.Not much of an atmosphere here but good sandwiches and a large variety of subs.Great for a sub to go or munching on one while enjoying a movie at the attached Catlow theater.

That's right...grab a sandwich here and eat in the theater...it's encouraged. Catlow shows are at 7pm during the week so sometimes we just grab a bite here right next to the movie house. We like the menu and the staff is great!

Most of down town Barrington, IL remains as it has been for decades, due to the historic society of Barrington and I love it. Boloney's sandwhich shop is one of those hidden treasures. Next to the historic Catlow Theatre, Boloney's is just that kind of...More

Ordered the tuna and egg sandwich. Way too much dressing made the tune like mush and tasteless. The egg salad had no flavor at all. You only get the sandwich for $6.50. Over priced and would not go back. I think Jimmy johns is better.
