Galloway’s Chicago Subs
In 2000, the Galloway family moved to Crystal Lake where they realized it would be a great place to own a business. Nine years later, they realized their dream when they opened Galloway’s Chicago Subs. The family did much of the work on the building themselves, and it offers a casual atmosphere that’s perfect for enjoying a leisurely meal. There are a variety of sandwiches to choose from, as well as soups such as broccoli cheddar and tomato basil bisque.
