Excellent subs. Ordered quite a few for a party and they were nice enough to cut all of them into 3 inch subs for us, provided all of the sauces, peppers, pickles, etc. and the whole order was right! Unlike a lot of other places that seem to always get the order wrong. Order done right at the time we... More

Subs are great, service is great, and they have a very large selection of subs. Parking can be tight when they are busy

We were at a business meeting and the hostess suggested that we order from Leno's Submarine Shop. The sandwiches that all of us ordered were all made to order and each one was exactly as ordered. I had the beef and garlic on a white bun. The delivery was quick and the driver was professional.

This place has the best subs in Lake County! Always fresh, and they will deliver. Prices are reasonable and their home made soups are the best!

Food, is pretty good for what it is. I find the bread to be tough to bite and i end up tearing my sandwich apart to eat it.

Great Italian bread, the best sandwich meat and cheese and the jardiniere. This place is a "hole in the wall" that has no equal..it was here before Subway and it will be here after Subway closes. Very friendly people!!!!!!!.

Lenos have been in Waukegan forever. Custom made sandwiches on the go. All fresh meats and cheeses to choose from. Call ahead as there is very limited parking. They certainly have stood the test of time.

Later I would often stop by when in the area; this was my first visit since the remodel.The old establishment was just awesome, and the original bread was the best!!!! Since I was in Waukegan this week I couldn't resist stopping in. It was nice and clean but... More

The sign says something like "seating for 1000, 18 at a time". It's a small shop, smaller than the average subway. If you are looking for a local and fresh alternative to the chain shop, this is the place. The ordering there is a bit unique, watch those in line ahead of you to learn what to expect. Fresh, great... More
