“Famous White House Sub Shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

The White House sub shop is an icon in Atlantic city and is well known all over!! They have great subs and Great cheesesteaks!!! And yes there full of meat and cheese they load u up!! U walk in and there's all celebrities that have eaten there, photos r all over the walls. And there's so many and when your sitting in the booths or the counter your just looking at all the pictures. The people that work there have been there for ever!!!!! There hard workers and the one comment someone made about there making the call up sandwiches first so not true u pick a number and they make right in front of u and u can tell them as there making it what u want on it! And they have guys at the end that do the calls. They have parking down the street now and also street parking. The White House is right down the street from the The Walk shopping district and the casinos and boardwalk and beach. Now sometimes there is a line out the door now that should tell u something, now that line is for u to sit and eat inside there they have about 12 booths and 6 stools.Take a peek in and see if the counter is open sit there instead of waiting unless there's a group of u.But if u want take out u don't have to wait in line go inside and walk to the back and pick a number. They make it right there for you. A lot of people tip the workers making your sandwich.everything is good there. There cheesesteaks and Italians and meatball and pepper and egg and the list goes on!!!!! And there bakery who makes there bread is right across the street so fresh!!!

“Waited 1/2 an hour in line and left”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

I wanted to get a sub for the 2-1/2 hr ride home but waited for 1/2 an hour and the line didn't seem to move. There were about 20 people in line but the staff seemed to be making the call in orders before the people standing right in front of them. I knew this because there were about 12-15 sandwiches sitting on the counter waiting to be picked up. I don't consider this good customer service. Maybe next time we will have better luck and if the sub is not up to par I will be very disappointed.

“Definitely a must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2013 via mobile

Had several different subs at our booth, all were generous,very tasty and the staff was very helpful with recommendations. Some of the people at our table have been eating here for forty years, and they indicated that the subs are consistently great over the generations.

“Big sandwich...but not what I was expecting.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

I so wanted to love this place but... I really don't understand the hype or what makes it so beloved. Maybe it just wasn't my taste. I ordered a half sub, Italian. Huge! For me, the salami was way too much like smoked sausage, sliced too thick, I actually had to take it off my sub because there was too much. Sorry White House, I just didn't enjoy it.

I will agree that the staff was exceptionally friendly, hardworking group. Nostalgia must play a part in the warm reviews and the repeat customers but frankly I found the interior old and worn. Viewing all of the celebrity photos was entertaining but did not compensate for my disappointing lunch.

No refills on fountain drinks...lame. Although, I guess if the lines were super long that would be nearly impossible to serve.

Parking is on the street, curbside. Good luck.

If you're adventurous and what to see some of the local flavor, try it for yourself. But if I ever go back I would have to order something new. No more Italian sub for me.
