Lunch Plans: Fino's From the Hill

Lunch Plans: Fino's From the Hill

I've found a restaurant that disproves the project management triangle. Fino's from the Hill is that rare combination of good, fast and cheap.  

Fino's has a corner storefont on the first floor of the Gilmore Apartments in midtown. It's nothing fancy, just a casual, worn-in dining room with a ton of tables, a few grocery items and a deli case. I'm a big fan of their sandwiches. They come in small, medium, or large. Fino's has a ton of sandwich options, including the popular Acquisto and a changing roster of daily specials, but I like to keep it simple. Behold the Fino, the deli's namesake sandwich:

The Fino, Memphis, Tenn.

It's a stack of sliced salami topped with provolone cheese and black olive dressing that I usually substitute for marinated tomatoes and onions on a fresh, crusty log of bread. And the best part: a small Fino is $6.50. If you're taking the sandwich with you, be sure to grab some napkins - between the crusty bread and the dressing, they can get a little messy. Fino's does dine in and take-out service, as well as catering. You can also order their sliced meats and cheeses by the pound.

Go there:

"from the hill" they say?  As of in the St Louis neighborhood?  I suppose the more apt question is whether or not their pizza's contain provel cheese?
