They make the best sub sandwiches around. They are a little pricey, but worth the money. Everything is always very fresh. It is mostly a take-out shop. They do have an area with a table outside the door but not really a place I'd want to eat. They take orders by phone also, so you can save time picking up... More

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. No spot to eat inside but we drove into New Castle and headed down to the riverside park where we enjoyed... More

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.
