“The BEST!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2009

Ideal Sub is absolutely the best sub shop! Yes, the speed of their service could be better but honestly, time is a small price to pay for such good subs at such great prices. I have tried a variety of combinations of subs from Ideal and have enjoyed ALL of them. Looking in from the outside, you would NOT think that their food is as good as it really is. Truly truly the definition of "never judge a book by it's cover"... I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who passes by it and may need a bite to eat. You will not have to dig too deeply in your pocket at all to satisfy your hunger here.

“My favorite Subshop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2007

This family owned, neighborhood subshop has the best subs ever. All the food is fresh, the subs are HUGE and INEXSPENSIVE, and the staff is friendly. The service is a little slow, but that's because the shop is always full of customers, seeking superb subs. My favorites are the Italian sub, and the steak & cheese sub. If you live in Boston, or if you're just stopping through, you have to try Ideal Subshop...It's an ideal subshop :-)

“Great food, very low prices, slow service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2006

This very popular neighborhood restaurant suffers from slow operational capacity. Lots of employees don't seem to be able to move fast enough to fulfill the demand for these large tasty fresh sandwiches. When you ring up you'll wonder how can they make a profit as they're so inexpensive! Don't bother calling in your order during peak hours, try faxing instead. Good luck!
