Spolumbo’s Fine Foods sells gourmet Italian sausage sandwiches made by three Italian-Canadian boys—men, really, since former Canadian football players and co-owners Tom, Mike, and Tony are about three times the size of the average Canadian (about twice the size of the average beef-loving Calgarian). They started making their sausages after-hours out of Tom’s father-in-law’s restaurant. Now they’re more famous for their dinosaur-sized sausage sandwiches on crusty buns with fresh tomato sauce than they are for passing and receiving. In true Alberta style, smaller sub options are available by special request only.

A Good Italian Deli in Alberta
I like to have a good sandwich. My friend Paul tells me, the best deli sandwiches are at Spolumbo's - I was excited about the idea but did not imagine what a great sandwiches they prepare. Fresh crunchy bread, egg salad and turkey - that is what I ordered, with a small clam chowder. You can eat at a table or standing at the bar. We had lunch standing and talking about work and food in Calgary.
