I have been going to southside sub shop for 30 years. I have NEVER been disappointed in my sub from there. Their bread is fantastic, their regular sub is my favorite with hot peppers, oregano, and grated cheese.

Poor meat quality, very limited ingredients. 10.75 for a large sub and soda. Definitely better off going to Byrne Dairy or Wegmans.

Whenever I'm craving a really good sub I come here. Any Elmira native knows the best sub in town is Southside Sub Shop! I don't know where they get their rolls, but it's the softest roll, and the meats always seem fresh.

Good subs, good prices, nothing fancy,quick service, not handicap accessible. This store is not on the Southside so it should be Southside Sub Shop II.

Today, just as they were back in the early eighties, are still making a generous sub with the freshest ingredients. SUB WAY , PUDGIES, and Blimpies can all come and go but we hope SOUTHSIDE SUB SHOP will always stay and never change!!!

They have been here as long as I can remember. No the bread is not made daily on site like some places, but it is their bread. When you bite into it you KNOW you are eating a southside sub shop sub. It’s distinct and has this awesome chewy quality that you just know where you got your sub from.... More
