White House Sub Shop

2301 Arctic Ave., Atlantic City, NJ - (609) 345-1564

If you want a sub with the most flavorful and freshest ingredients you can imagine, and if you want that sub loaded beyond your imagination, and if you want bread that has been made no more than one hour before your arrival, White House is the place for you.

Beware, there are large lines at meal time and very limited seating. Don't let the neighborhood or the look of the establishment turn you off. The secret is to order your sandwiches to go. There is a large parking lot around the corner and pick-ups don't wait in line (too long). The best thing about their "to go" items is that they do not get soggy.

Oh yes, by the way, their steak sandwiches and cheesesteaks are also phenomenal.

"We always get a White House Special when we visit. But the Special is a special version of what? Well, this sub, a "regular". Same ingredients, less meat. Even this one is more than you can probably eat, but we'd give the nod to the Special anyway. It just seems more... special."

This is a full tuna sub.  You sometimes hear the full-size subs are over a foot long, but in fact they must be about a yard in length.

The unique thing about a White House tuna sub is that the tuna doesn't seem to be mixed with mayo.  We're not really sure how it's prepared; kind of seems like it's dressed with oil.  Anyway, this is one of the world's great tuna sandwiches.

Of all the celebrities honored on the White House walls, none is more revered than The Chairman of the Board.  Sinatra, after all, was a New Jersey boy himself.

The White House has not franchised, proliferated, or otherwise watered-down its formula for excellence.  And if you doubt that, read this notice posted behind the counter!

Formica Brothers Italian Bakery is a major reason for the legend of White House.  The bread is impeccably fresh.

That's a full-sized chef's knife, not a paring knife.  A whole sub is A LOT of sub.
