Good Meatball Sub

They have a great meatball sub here. I would recommend. They have been around forever. Good place for a sandwich.

A longtime Columbia institution, the Sub Shop makes the best, freshest sandwiches in town. the menu is not particularly extensive, but the vegetables are fresh, the bread really good, and the retro/hippie ambience quite nice. Also delivers.

For me, it's a toss-up between Sub Shop and Penn Station but Sub Shop usually wins out. I've been to the downtown location and the Worley Street location and both have that "hole in the wall" atmosphere but I think that's part of the charm. They don't skimp on sauce or toppings. Go on Tuesday and get free fries.

You just have to try one. They don't skimp on the sauces , condiments, or cheese. All of the breads are delicious, don't overlook the excellent rye. The signature sandwich (I guess) is the veggie. Jared would have probably gained weight on it but they'll make it however you like. Despite other comments, I've always found delivery fast and hot,... More

I ordered a veggie sub from here and had them to put turkey on it. This was one of the best subs I'd ever gotten from a fast food chain. I'll be ordering more subs in the future from here

The Sub Shop has been around for years and my favorite has been and remains the veggie on whole wheat. Their subs are like no others in town. Great value.

Miss the subs from this place. Don't really fancy eating there as the place is a dump but always have them to go. Their subs are on their own home-made rolls which is what makes them good. Meatball or Italian being my favourites. Even the roast beef is good. Nothing like a hot sub during winter nights. Service can be... More

I think the food is good but every time I order for delivery the food takes over an hour to get delivered. Seems to me the people dont care about when they get the food to you.

The food was tasty. Unfortunately the atmosphere did not match up. The floors and bathrooms were dirty. We had a larger order. They brought out 5 sandwiches. We had to ask for FOUR missing items. They hadn't even made my three-year-old's sandwich, so she had to wait for it while everyone else ate. It took forever to bring it out... More
