Good sandwiches, great slice of life

We were hungry. Even the small sandwiches are a full meal. Definitely worth a stop. For years locals have been calling in their orders to pick up and it's great fun watching the counter staff interact with their regulars.

Traveled across the bridge from Jersey to visit, well worth the drive. Ordered the 12" Meatball Parmesan. It was fantastic, very good meatballs, sauce and cheese.

Great steak sandwiches. The Bobbie is a good one to try, turkey and cranberry sauce. The meats are tasty.

Decided to check out this place based on the reviews. Travelling from DC to Atlantic City, we thought Capriotti's would be a great place to stop for lunch, and it didn't disappoint. We all went for the Bobbie sub, a concoction of turkey, cranberry, stuffing, and mayonnaise, and it was delicious. Well worth the $10 or so for the foot-long... More

Having tried to get a sub tray fir the hours later was told that they couldn't take care of that. Meanwhile other local sub shop had no problem. I don't understand what making 8 subs is so difficult

At one time they were probably the best subs in the area. Although they are still very good, they've slipped a bit since the original family sold the business to a corporation.

Decided to try this place after checking Trip advisor for a good place to eat. I can see how tho place is number one. I tried the Bobbie and it was excellent. It was like eating a Thanksgiving meal on a sub. The service was great and quick. The value was outstanding, the small was plenty big enough that i... More

I don't know where to start. The turkey is fresh every day. The Bobbi is Thanksgiving on a roll. The Cole Turkey is a winner. The Capastrami is outstanding. The Cheese Steak is WOW. Oh, the menu selection goes on. Don't order until you know the length of a sandwich, you may have to save the other half for later.... More

We had heard about this place and decided to go try it out. Boy were we glad, it was the best lunch I had eaten. The service was great and food fantastic. Also it was not far from where we live so we can always go back time and time again since we now know how good the food is.... More

Capriotti's may have expanded over the years, but they still produce excellent hoagies/sandwiches. My top three are their Italian Sub/Hoagie, The Bobbie (Turkey, Cranberry & Stuffing) and the Capristrami (a sloppy version fo a grilled Reuben sub). Always outstanding! Recently, I asked them to prep my sandwiches for pre-flight! 2000 miles and delivered for dinner in Denver, CO.
