The Little King

1951 NJ-33, Hamilton Square, NJ - (609) 586-1310
The Little King is the quintessential Central New Jersey sandwich shop. We recommend the South Jersey Italian or the house-roasted turkey. The pork roll, egg, and cheese is iconic and soulful. It's a locals haunt, and the staff lend the place a friendly neighborhood vibe with true Jersey personality.

THE New Jersey sandwich: pork roll, egg, and cheese.  Classically served on a hard roll, with ketchup.  We ordered ours on a seeded half-hoagie roll, no ketchup.

We especially love the King's turkey sandwiches.  Be sure to ask for the turkey roasted in-house, not the deli turkey.

If you're a newcomer to Philly/South Jersey hoagies, know that a half-hoagie is the normal, one-person serving.  A whole, like this turkey sandwich, is made with a whole loaf of bread and is meant for multiple eaters.

Over the years a collection of special menu items has accumulated all over the walls and counters.  There are probably as many sandwiches to be found this way (the most interesting options, too) as are on the menu board proper.

Ode to a Little King hoagie.  Click on the photo for a better view (although it's still a little out of focus).

Somehow the cartoon character known as The Little King never entered our zone of perception.  But, like Popeye's Wimpy, he's inspired a number of fast food specialists.
