“Must have home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

My daughters and now grandchildren must get an Elsie's sub when they come home to visit me. They went to Elsie's when teenagers, now over 40, and a home visit is not complete without an Elsie's sub stop. Even I will join them although subs are not my first choice in cuisine.

“Iconic Eatery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I have been eating at Elsie's for at least 45 years!!! This is a down to earth, good old fashioned sub shop. Each sub is made to order... especially for you. Fresh rolls, top quality meat and cheese, seasoned just the way you like it... and placed in a plastic bag that is just the right size to hold it all together.
The secret to eating an Elsie's Sub is to slide the plastic baggie down as you eat so all the drippings and stuff fall into the bag instead of on your clothes!
Ah.... eating an Elsie's Sub brings back so many memories! Start your memory TODAY!!

“Great subs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

My husband and I stopped in Elsie's on a Saturday afternoon while visiting Red Bank. The guy behind the counter said they've been around since 1959 and he'd been working there since 1989. They have a good selection of subs. I ordered a pastrami sub and requested that they slice the pastrami thin, which they were happy to do. The sub was great - hot and made exactly to order. But the highlight was the sub roll - so soft and fresh! If we lived in Red Bank, I'd be a regular for sure.
