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.
