Hoagie or Sub? Mon, 09/20/10 12:41 PM (permalink)
Since I grew up in Philly, I call this sandwich a hoagie.  The place that made it, Voltaco's here in Ocean City calls this a small Italian Sub.
By any name it was mighty tasty.

    In WI, we call them subs or grinders.  No hoagies here.

      In the civilized world they are called subs or grinders.

          I'd call it a sub.  Looks fabulous.

              I showed the  picture to my 12 year old grandaughter and asked her what she would say it is.  Her response was  "A sub with too much lettuce."

                Hoagies here... but we make no pretense of being civilized, so it fits.

                      Hoagies in the Philly, eastern PA, DE and south NJ areas except for Norristown where they're known as Zeps. Subs in the Atlantic City area and elsewhere in the US. I always thought Grinders originated in the New England area.

                                      Usually subs but the barbarians to the east occasionally influence us and hoagie is used.

                                          Here is a "sub" from the Whitehouse in Atlantic City.

                                            Nice. Russo's in Wildwood makes an excellent sub. But they call it a hoagie. A great cheesesteak as well. I wear a tee shirt I bought from them and when I wear it here I'm asked what a hoagie is.
                                             
                                            Seems like it's called a hoagie in PA and South Jersey (although some places like AC called it a sub), a sub in the rest of Jersey, a hero in N.Y. and a grinder in New England.

                                              Actually I rarely hear the term "grinder" in New England...most people here use "sub" as in "I'm going to make a run to the sub shop".

                                                When I was stationed in New London Conn. (this was many years ago) what I call a hoagie was a grinder.  In Philly a grinder is a hoagie that has been toasted for a minute or two under the broiler.  Confusing isn't it?

                                                  When I was stationed in New London Conn. (this was many years ago) what I call a hoagie was a grinder.  In Philly a grinder is a hoagie that has been toasted for a minute or two under the broiler.  Confusing isn't it?


                                                  Considering the sub originated as a sub at a grocery store in Groton where workers at Electric Boat would go for sandwiches on their lunch breaks, I find it strange to think anyone there would call it a grinder. But that aside, in my part of Connecticut all subs were called subs, both hot ones and cold ones. Where my wife was from in Connecticut a hot one was called a grinder while a cold one was a sub.

                                                      I was buying the sandwiches on the base.  Perhaps grinder was the Navy name and not the local.
                                                      But speaking of confusing names, how is it that the New London Submarine Base is across the river in Groton?

                                                        There's an old Pequot legend About the day the Wamauraugnog became angry with a Pequot maiden named Grotonoawig because she refused to give up her human form and become his concubine. In venting his anger the Wamauraugnog thrashed about with such violence that the Thames River was created -- although back then the Pequots named it Wamauraugnogisoakay, which means Holy Snapperblue in Pequot, but was shortened to Thames 200 years later by English settlers who were very lost and didn't know they were no longer in England.
                                                         
                                                        But to continue, Wamauraugnog's anger also included a curse that has lasted to this day. It was explained in Pequot lore that on the day a non-Pequot attempted to settle on the east bank of the Wamauraugnogisoakay the curse would cause those living on the west bank and the east bank to become confused often, and in their confusion they would forget on which side of the Wamauraugnogisoakay they happened to be.
                                                         
                                                        It is this curse that is believed to be the cause of the United States Naval Base at New London to actually be on the east bank in Groton.
