WALGREEN'S, Anywhere in the Loop

Newest of the American dishes, which has made a great hit, is the inner-toasted sandwich, served only in Walgreen drug stores. It is a good-sized bun with its insides toasted and filled with various meats or other foods — beef saute, chicken salad, frankfurter, melted American cheese, or tuna fish salad. A deviled egg and a cup of coffee or tea go with it and the whole costs 25 cents. Everybody eats them at noon in Walgreen's.
