DiTullios Italian Imports Rockford, IL
Seeing as it is difficult to find something different in the nether regions of Burger Kings and Applebees, DiTullios is a nice find. They have a small but decent selection of Italian meats and cheeses. The sandwiches are quite good. My favorite would be the Hot Italian (hot cappicola, sopressatta & others), I have them add roasted red peppers to it. YUM good sandwich.
There is a small grocery section of Italian goods as well at DiTullios.

Polish Deli Rockford, IL
Another good find in the land of Burger Kings and Applebees is the Polish Deli in Rockford, IL.
The Polish Deli offers an 8 item hot buffet from 11am-5pm.
Yesterday there were perogies, latkes, two types of sausages, stuffed cabbage, meatballs. Sometimes there are soups as well.
ALL of the food is homemade and darn good.
The buffet is $3.69 per lb and if you put one of each item in your container as I do, the bill is about $5.
Decent selection of deli items as well.
It is all takeout; there is no place to sit.
