Good but not great

My # 6 sub was ok not the best I ever had not the worst by far. I'm from out of town so didn't know what to expect. I agree with some of the others meat was good but quantity was on the light side. Bread was excellent and they did put just the right amount of oil an vinegar... read more

We had wonderful submarine sandwiches. There was a great variety of sandwiches, salads, breakfast items and Italian food.

We checked out this pizza/subs/deli for lunch and ended up getting a roast beef sloppy joe to go. The bread was fresh, roast beef rare the way we like it, and the slaw & dressing made this large sandwich worth the stop. This deli is interesting to say the least. They have an extensive menu of hot & cold items... More

I love this place. I found it about a month ago and now make it part of my weekly diet. Their subs remind me of my childhood, when my mom would pick up a huge sandwich on our way to the shore in the summertime. Their meats are always delicious and bread nice and fresh. I also bought a winning... More

I have not had the pizza, but the subs (hogies) and sloppy joe's are amazing. This is a very good Jersey Deli. They get your order done quick and fast. There are a few chairs inside and a small but comfortable patio seating outside. They also do catering, and I have gotten some 6-foot subs from them in the past.... More

This deli/pizzeria has been in this location under different ownership for 50 years or more. The latest incarnation of it carries on the tradition with great style. There are specials different nights of the week, and if you are looking for the quintessential sloppy joe sandwich don't miss the one they make here! Ambience is a little lacking, but the... More

The food is expensive and just average. We had to ask for peanut sauce for the Pad Thai which was tasteless. Really not worth the money since you can get good jazz elsewhere.

Went here quite some time ago for a tuna sub. Got a full sized one and ate it in a park nearby. The sandwich was good, though I was disgusted with myself that I ate such a large meal. I also believe that I looked creepy sitting by an empty baseball diamond eating a sub

Groupon introduced me to Madison Main Street Subs. I'm glad I never paid full price. Their food is really not very good. Using the Groupons we purchased: -Turkey Sloppy Joe's: bread was not fresh, cole slaw and thousand island dressing were not very good. - Chicken Parmesan Sub: microwaved breaded chicken with flavorless pasta sauce and mozzarella on top. -...
