    But tuna subs, no! at least here.

    By far the best subs begin with home fixin's.

      Had a great sandwich yesterday down here in San Diego, CA. Its a place called Phillys Best. Small chain in CA but big in taste and autenticity. Had an Italian hoagie with extra oil. They ship in Amoroso rolls from Phila so it makes for a fantastic start. Ham, Salami, Mortadella, Provolone, Onions, Lettuce and Sweet Peppers. Excellent sandwich. Its about a 30 mile drive from where I live but definately worth it and anyone that lives down in San Diego you should try it out. Its right off the 5 freeway on Oceanside Blvd. People inside were chowing down on Cheesesteaks. Looked good, will have to go back.

          Growing up in Greenwich, CT there was a place in Cos Cob called Lou's. Everyone always refered to it as Dirty Lou's. Lous did all the cooking over a real charcoal grill and made his own chili. He did buy the best quality meats. My favorite was a steak wedge (sub) which was a thin slice of beef, grilled and with chili and chopped onions.

                Years ago in Mlwaukee, there was a sub shop called Suburpia.Best subs I ever had.Their Gold coast was my favorite-danish ham, cheese, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo and a secret spice blend i have never been able to recreate.They have resurrected one of the shops-and it is pretty darn close...the best part of all was that they present the sub in a plastic bag that catches all the fixins...turn the bag inside out when done with the sandwich and enjoy a little more....

                  Pepperoni and Provolone with lettuce, oil and vinegar on a torpedo roll. The best I had was at Coletti's sub shop in Parsippany New Jersey.

                      Well, I see we both know about Parsippany, and we both subsequently sobered up and moved to the land of Enchantment. Coletti's is located on the corner of Hook Mountain Rd and Rt 46, across the street from Wendy's. Right next to the old church that became an arcade. Jack's in Lake Hiawatha? The only sub shop I remember from Lake Hiawatha was on North Beverwyck, called Don's. They were good at one time, but then began downsizing their portions. That's when I became partial to Coletti's.

                          I like Blimpie's Italian. When they say extra meat...they mean it!! Just wish there was one around Pittsburgh.

                                Growing up, my favorite "hero" was an italian at "Renatos" in Ridgewood, NJ . Here in Mass they are called "grinders" and i have not found one yet that compares to those.

                                  I agree I have never understood the allure of the "Italian" subs as served by the typical Massachusetts "House of Pizza" type places. A lot of people seem to like them, though.

                                    Lately I've been thinking of one of my favorite subs when I lived in NYC. There was a shop on 9th Avenue between 58th and 59th where I worked called Hero to Eternity. Yes, the owner was a big fan of the movie. Also had another location uptown on Amsterdam.

                                    As for the sandwiches, these were extra-large, on very good lightly crusty Italian-style loaves. My pick was the Sinatra (yes, the owner really loved the movie). Frank Sinatra happens to turn my stomach, so the sandwich had to be good to win me over.

                                    Wish I could remember exactly what was in it. It was a big sesame-seeded hero roll, overstuffed with good white tuna salad, some kind of cheese, lettuce, tomato, maybe some onion, sprouts, maybe some roasted peppers. There may have been a touch of vinaigrette. Whatever it was, it was lunch and dinner (one sandwich was big enough) practically one day a week.

                                    Wish I had one now.

                                      My favorite place to get a sub is Tony Luke's in Philly. Their Roast Pork Italian w/broccoli or spinach rabe is easily the best sub I have ever eaten. And their chcken parm isn't too far off, either.

                                      Two other places worth mentioning for best subs is The White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City and the Short Stop Deli in Ithaca, NY

                                        I'm sure this is just pure nostalgia speaking but back in the blue light days K-Mart sold subs and I used to love them as a kid. Nothing special, paper thin onions and tomatoes shredded lettuce and your basic Oscar Mayer lunchmeat and yellow cheese food product, but I would kill for one now.

                                          am i the only person who hates cheap shredded lettuce on their grinder/sub/whatever you call it? when i lived in ohio there was a place that made hot subs, and they would bake them with the lettuce and tomatoes inside, it was soooooo gross! there is nothing worse than baked and wilted lettuce and tomatoes!

                                          my perfect whatever sandwich you call it would be roast beef, swiss cheese, bacon, tomatoes, horseradish sauce, and black olives, all on a crusty bun that is chewy inside and crusty outside after baking in an oven. with the tomatoes put in after baking. pure heaven.

                                          my parents are from western new york state, and a true beef and wick is very tasty too. it's hard to decide which i want more, the more i think about it...

                                            What are your favorite subs?

                                            I'd have to agree with the Italian Sub! Good crusty Italian Bread, Imported: Genoa Salami, Coppa, Aged Provolone, Hot Sopresatta, Prosciutto. Drizzle olive oil over the top with some fresh garlic, salt and pepper.

                                                If only there was someplace here in Tallahassee to lay my hands & teeth on a sub like Hot Dog King describes. Well, I can get most of it if I make one at home, but the good crusty Italian bread isn't going to happen here.

                                                  I like several "flavors", but if I have but one to list as a first choice at some South Philly (or Boston) Sub Shop, it would be the Roast Beef. Dressed with a little mayo several slices of sweet onion and tomato, Maybe some green pepper slices too. If the hot peppers are the sliced Jalopenas, a few of them too. Just enough Provolone to shield that great filling from the fresh-baked roll itself.

                                                  Other flavors also acceptable would be-
                                                  Italian Cold Cuts
                                                  Hot Meatball and Italian Sausage
                                                  Peppersteak (hold the cheese)
                                                  Crabsalad
                                                  etc etc

                                                  I mention the Philadelphia or Boston (or New Jersey) areas because I have yet to have a really good Sub outside of the Northeast coast region. There may be places in other urban areas that make them, but it seems there is something special about the roll, and the deli filling that makes those areas "better".

                                                      Would that be Nino's Bakery? They used to supply Suburpia.
