Husband-and-wife team Rita and Al Hill opened Biggie Subs & Deli Shop, 6602 W. Lisbon Ave., on April 1. The sandwich shop is their first restaurant.
"I always did catering for parties and cooked for family," says Rita. "I finally looked into having a place of our own and here we are."
Biggie’s specializes in Johnsonville brats and sausages and has different types available daily. The cost is $1. The shop also offers "build-you-own colossal subs" featuring up to fours types of meat, four cheeses and unlimited condiments for $2.50.
Other sandwich offerings will fluctuate including sloppy joes, all-beef hotdogs, chili dogs, chicken and tuna salad and more.
The Hills grew up on the Northwest Side of Milwaukee, have been together for 15 years – married for 13 – and have two grown sons. Currently, they live in the Washington Park neighborhood.
For now, Biggie’s sandwiches are available for carry-out only, but eventually the business will offer online ordering and delivery service.
"My husband is a big guy – which is where the name comes from – and he wanted our sandwiches to be big," says Rita. "Our customers see more meat than bread."
