“Strange little grubby place”
Reviewed May 7, 2011

If people vote with their feet then this is a popular place. I visited whist back in town because it was, (at the time) #2 on tripadvisor.com. I had the turkey breast sub and a can of pepsi and the check came to about $7-$8, nothing to write home about there.

The decor. I voted 1/5 for atmosphere because the website wouldn't let me give it a 0!

Overall. It's a little grubby hole in the wall with very average subs, processed deli meats and canned tomatoes. It's popular and I hope they have continued success because everyone is hurting in this economy and they clearly have a following that appreciate their food. However. #2 on tripadvisor.com! Ahead of Red Mesa, etc! Very wrong, not even in the same class as subway!

“You will say "Yum-Yum all the way !”
Reviewed January 14, 2011

Williams is a family owned business that's been here forever , and I hope the stay forever. Don't change a thing. The hot pepper relish is so excellent on the (Yum-Yum) club sub. Get it with a siide of potato salad (regular or red skin), and you'll say yum yum to that too! Service is fast , friendly , and most often quite attractive at that. Don't tell anyone about the rarely available smoked fish spread so there's more for me! Limited parking. Subs are $6 to$8. Tourist free atmosphere. Closes early evening. Call ahead for big orders. For me , the club sub is best served cold. Fair prices. Great food. Fantastic people. Luv em!

Reviewed November 3, 2010

100% Consistent for the 28 years I've been in St Pete. These ladies make THE BEST subs and salads EVER! My personal favorite is the Yum Yum Club with their infamous hot pepper relish. Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!

“BEST SUB SANDWICH IN ST PETE FOR MANY YEARS”
Reviewed July 31, 2010

When I want a special sub this is the only place to go. I travel 20 minutes across ST Pete to get there. Been doing it for 40 years. Nothing has changed but the girls that wait on you behind the counter. What makes their subs so special is the fresh baked rolls they are used & the chopped tomatoes...always double up on them...I love tomatoes and these are the best in St Pete that I have found...they compare to the tomatoes you get in Italy. Just talking about makes want to ride over & get one.
