Sub Arena is a local sub shop that has really fresh soft bread for the subs. There is a lot of subs to choose from when you eat here. It is so much better than Subway. It is a little more expensive than Subway but tastes so much better.

Sub Arena is a locally-owned Sub shop that's not too bad. I prefer Jimmie Johns but since there isn't one nearby, the choices are: Sub Arena or Subway.
