A take-out place for good sandwiches. Stop by and get one from this family-run business. Various deli meat subs available in different sizes.

On the edge of Capitol Hill for years, Mangialardos is now a sub shop. It offers a variety of subs, all made to order. It has a diverse clientele, with many police customers. One of the better subs on the Hill. Take-out only. Phone in your order and bring a nice lunch back to your office mates.

Mom-and-Pop stores are definitely an endangered species, but if you're coming to visit Washington DC, and/or LIVE in DC, you really want to see this piece of living history. The family spans (at least) four generations of sandwich/sub-making, and they still operate this place. Parking isn't that difficult, and if you're a tourist, just hop on the Orange/Blue line and go to the Potomac Avenue stop. It's a block walk.

It's also particularly safe -- this place is a favorite for Police, Fire, Rescue, and almost any uniformed officer. There's no seating, so it's a matter of them (and you!) coming in, placing your order, and getting out!

Note: They are CASH ONLY (told you they were a true Mom-and-Pop store!). The locals of Capitol Hill know this place to be a "locals" gem, and you just CANNOT go wrong if you order the "G-Man" sandwich (hard or soft roll). Get yourself some chips and a drink, and you'll have one of the best lunches you can get in DC (and feel like a local at the same time!).

The costs are not expensive -- and HUGE sandwich, plus, chips and a drink will run under $10.

Take out only and cash only. And they close at 3 PM. Best to call in your order or you'll stand around waiting during lunch hour. I've tried and enjoyed Taylor Gourmet and haven't made it to the Italian Store yet. But this is the best sub I've found outside of the White House in Atlantic City, my personal favorite. And I've been looking. They use either hard or soft rolls and the cold cut quality, oil, and cheeses used are all outstanding. The hard roll is best; old school, and it stays firm, not soggy. It's not the same bread as south Jersey but it's the next best. Order the Super G for a huge italian sub that will completely satisfy in every way.
