Marchone’s Revisited

Marchone's Meatball Sub

Marchone’s Meatball Sub

I’ve said it before and I will now say it again: Marchone’s (11224 Triangle Lane) makes great subs. Especially the meatball, although their Italian sub did quite well in our taste test a few years ago.  Outside of Nava and Ruan, Marchone’s is probably our next most frequented Wheaton restaurant.  They aren’t really a “restaurant” — sandwiches, meats and cheeses, dry goods, some prepared frozen Italian foods like lasagne and eggplant parm — so maybe “food purveyor” or something.  Anyway, they’re good at what they do, and I hope they can survive the changing downtown Wheaton landscape.  I know a bunch of businesses may not survive once the triangle area goes under the construction knife, so I’m enjoying Marchone’s while I can…and am hopeful they’ll be there a long time yet.

Also, their cannoli are excellent.
