“Family Tradition Still Going Strong After 60 Years!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

My aunt and her sister started Voltaco's in 1954. I worked there the summer of 1965. My cousin Joe and Vicki , his wife, now are the owner/ operaters. The quality and quantity in the subs has not diminished over the years. Just back from a trip to O.C. and had their Italian sub for dinner last night. Penny, my wife, had the roasted red pepper sub (first time she had a Voltaco sub) and she raved about it. Both were so delicious, as always. Keep up the good work, Joe and Vicki! Teresa, your mom, and your Aunt Rose would be so proud! 60 years and still going strong!

“A must to visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

It has been an obsession for years when we visit Ocean City, NJ to get sandwiches from Voltacos to eat on the beach. trip to the beach wouldn't be the same without stopping here.

“Guaranteed: your food will never be ready when they tell you”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Voltacos is 60 years old this year...quite a business in Ocean City in the summer time. We have been going here for maybe 30 years.....but less and less each year....and only once this year. The reason: when you call an order in....they give you a "ready" time....usually about 40 minutes out....and when you arrive at the appointed hour, the food is NEVER ready on time....and in fact, our family swears that they don't even start the "hot" food until you get there. When we visited this weekend, again, the food was not ready at the appointed hour, and then when it was ready about 15 minutes late, they had missed a child's spaghetti...a hot food....so we had to wait another 10 minute while they got it ready. Good food....but is it worth. Several other places in Ocean City serve just as good Italian food....and one in particular....on Asbury is always ready on time.

“Delicious food! Friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 via mobile

Have been coming to OC for years and finally fell upon this place by chance. The food is excellent, well priced and portions are reasonable. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Everything is prepared fresh to order. Some reviews stated they had a bit of a wait for food. It is unrealistic to NOT expect that during tourist season. We were told in would be a half hour and the wait for our food was more like 20 minutes. We will be back again and again!

“Best hoagies in Ocean City, NJ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Ordered 10 various hoagies from Voltaco's twice in 3 days and each one was delicious. They were the best we've tasted since leaving the Philadelphia/South Jersey area many years ago. Highly recommend Voltaco's when visiting Ocean City. My favorite was the Italian Hoagie filled with delicious italian cold cuts together with tomato, lettuce, onion and dressing. Second best, Phila Cheese Steak with real cheese.
