A Columbia favorite

I have been eating at Sub Shop since 1975. You will not find a better hot sub and soup anywhere. I love the veggie on whole wheat and the onion soup. THe tomato soup is good too. This is not a chain, it is unique to Columbia. A must if you want to get to know Columbia.

If you went to MIZZOU and remember the great sandwiches ate at one of the Sub Shops as a student, well you won't be disappointed. Still yummy and still a great place to sit and eat. Highly recommend the vegetarian even if you are a meat eater.

Can be ordered warm or cold, for delivery or immediate eating, these subs are the best value in Columbia (maybe the country!!) The bread is newly baked, warm and crunchy, and the ingredients are fresh and appropriately done! You are able to customize all the ingredients in the sandwich, as well as the size! I have been eating these subs... More

Sub Shop hasn't hardly changed in years. They still make great subs in a quirky setting. The Italian is wonderful!

My spouse and I chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary with subs at the Sub Shop! The subs are heavenly - we visit as often as we can and eat as much as we can each time! We have now eaten at all Sub Shop sites that were ever open in Columbia! The bread is fresh and perfectly toasted, and... More

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.
