White House Sub Shop

2301 Arctic Ave., Atlantic City, NJ - (609) 345-1564
Posted By Jim Rigotti on 7/3/2008 6:50:00 PM
I walked to White House Subs from the Tropicana, which was a nice distance to work up an appetite. I arrived there only to find the line outside the door and down the sidewalk. I enjoyed the 45 minute wait, just hanging out with the other sub lovers. Once inside the door I found you can get the subs for takeout, and you can eat in the park across the street (a great idea to cut down the wait time).

I was told to only get a half of a White House Special (Italian sub) but as I waited in line I thought, when will I next get a chance to try one of these? I made the decision to get a whole. It was at least two feet long and packed with meat and cheese. The best sub I have ever had!!! I was able to eat about 3/4 of it and was full the rest of the day.

I highly recommend the wait for, and the experience of, getting a White House Sub. Bring your own drink: the only available drinks were from a soda machine in the rear of the store.

"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.
