NORTH CHICAGO, Ill., Dec. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — In 1964, Sammie’s opened its first restaurant in a trailer in the Portage Park area of Chicago. Serving Chicago-style sandwiches for decades, today, there are five Sammie’s locations — all in Lake County.  “We are very happy to be the home of the newest Sammie’s restaurant,” said Mayor Rockingham. “We look forward to a long prosperous partnership with you.”

The fifth restaurant is located on Sheridan Road in North Chicago. “We were very excited to open here,” said David Keith, Co-Owner. “The city and people have really embraced us, and that means a lot to me since my family roots are in the City of North Chicago.”

Keith’s family ties to North Chicago run deep. “My father and grandparents are from North Chicago,” said Keith. “Not only that, my aunt was honored in a city parade as being North Chicago’s oldest and longest living resident and worked at Jelly Belly on Morrow Avenue her whole life; she walked across the street to go to work.” David Keith’s father, the late William E. Keith was a career officer in the Army Air Corp and the first state chairman of the Pearl Harbor Survivors Association. “My grandparents are buried at the Northshore Garden of Memories cemetery on Dugdale Avenue,” Keith said, “My father is buried in Ft. Sheridan National Cemetery.”

David Keith started in the family business as a teenager washing dishes at the Grayslake restaurant in 1976 at the age of 16 and has been a part of Sammie’s ever since then. The name, “Sammie’s” is after Sam Guinta one of the original founders.

Keith co-owns the North Chicago Sammie’s with Joe Guinta and they focus on Chicago-style sandwiches. The owners’ mission is to provide the best product at good pricing with fast and friendly service. “It’s what’s worked for us at all of our other locations,” said Keith. The North Chicago restaurant offers an expanded menu on Wednesdays offering rib tips.

Currently, Sammie’s is open 10 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. weekdays and 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. on Saturdays. They offer discounts to law enforcement, military, and veterans.

“This is a military town and we want to recognize those who serve,” Keith said. “We are proud to be a part of North Chicago and its renaissance.”
