I need to eat this sandwich, I plan on making it this weekend!
Does anyone have information on the type of cole slaw they use?
It doesn't seem to be a mayo based slaw.

Millburn Deli does use a mayo based slaw, very white cabbage with a tiny bit of shredded carrot.  Town Hall is a grassy, green slaw that is more finely shredded, and is inferior to the Millburn Deli slaw.
 
I went there today as my girlfriend wanted to bring them home to her family (she's relocated out of NJ) and we picked up a half dozen Joes-I had them made 'old school, wrapped for traveling) which meant butter the bread, easy on the coleslaw and russian, double wrap with no pickle slice in the wrapping.  G/f left to drive back to VA. 
 
Yesterday, another friend  calls and wants to catch up for coffee.  She's visiting from Ireland, but grew up here.  We meet for coffee today, and she wants to bring joe's back to Manasquan, where she's meeting her brother and sister.  So for the second time in three hours, I'm at the Millburn Deli with a cute blonde ordering a half dozen joes.  The counterman is giving me the hairy eyeball stare-finally he says 'nice to see you again, it's been a while' with a smirk.  You can't make this stuff up.

I grew up in Bergen County N.J and when I worked in the deli at Shoprite in Emerson we made a Sloppy Joe platter. We used white bread cut lengthwise rather thinly and used roast beef, turkey. swiss and russian dressing and cole slaw layered. We would cut them into 4' x 4'  and sell them as a platter. They were delicious and us employees would eat them often. I think I will try to make one this weekend.

Wow!  I'd never seen this thread before and just a few days ago I was talking to my girlfriend's cousin from Westfield, NJ who was singing the praises of this sandwich.  It sound like a cold version of a reuben to me until I saw the pics from page 1 of this thread.  Sounds awesome.  Hope to try one soon.

Not a sloppy Joe but similar, I used to love the white meat turkey on rye with slaw & russian at Hobby's in Newark. Slaw and russian on a sandwich is common in Kosher or Kosher style delis.

Hobby's Deli might be one of the best best kept secrets of NJ Roadfood. Harold's Harold's Harold's.

Growing up on LI one of my favorite sandwiches was turkey and swiss with coleslaw and Russian dressing.  Not from the Kosher deli-restaurants, but from the small neighborhood delicatessens in and around Port Washington.

Many years ago, working in Millburn, I alternated between their sloppy Joe (ham) and roast beef joe on perhaps a weekly basis for several years.  Simply outstanding.  Was fortunate to be in the area a few years ago and had one that was as good as I recalled from the good-old days.  Well worth a trip.

MelloRoast,

Why have one shipped?

You can buy the rye bread, cold cuts, coleslaw, and Russian dressing and build one for yourself. I'll bet that you could make  4~7 Sloppy Joe's for the price of one shipped from NJ. (Yes, I'm a cheapskate )

Try it. It's a hard sandwich to beat!

 
But good luck trying to buy a decent rye bread outside of NJ/NY/FL.
