The original moe's was 3 doors to the right, and they were made right in the window much like they do now. Much like the hot dog equivalent in Cape Neddick, Flo's, it was a little hole in the wall, and like Flo's, a line wound around the teeny room, people bumping into each other trying to move in and...

While visiting my boyfriend in Portsmouth, NH he took me to Moe's. He kept raving about this place & since I grew up eating some real hoagies, I had to try. Well all I can say is I found my new favorite Hoagie spot which is an unfortunate 1,200 miles away from where I live. We went to the original... More

I have been eating Moe's sandwiches since Phil(the originator) and his wife had a tiny window front shop on Daniel Street in downtown Portsmouth (mid-60's) when the only choice was an Italian with or without special oil and I have to say, although they have since been franchised & offer other varieties of sandwiches, the original Moe's are just as...

We always have the standard Italian and we've been many times. If you are from the Philadelphia-Wilmington, DE area, you will be disappointed. The meats are ok but not great salami. But net net, its a good sub for the money and location.

These sandwiches/subs/hoagies/grinders or whatever your region calls them are really good, fresh and quickly prepared. No real seating, no extras, just good food and excellent quality from friendly people.

I know Moe's is a local favorite - just look at the reviews and ask people who live near one (they are a small chain). I hate to be the only one on Tripadvisor to give it an average rating but I have eaten at a few different of these shops in southeastern NH and I have never been impressed.... More

I grew up in Portsmouth and have been eating Moe's since I was little! They offer a variety of submarine sandwiches, but my favorite is always the original! We always buy them to take on the plane trip back to San Diego...don't forget to get a Whoopie Pie for dessert! And yup...the price is right! Moe's is very close to... More

I was raised loving Moe's Italian sandwiches. They are the best, and are just as amazing now as they were when I was a kid, and as (I assume) they were when my parents were kids in Portsmouth, NH, when the original shop opened. I recently stopped in at the downtown shop on my way up to Maine and treated... More

If you like a Maine style Italian (Ham and Cheese pretending to be Italian Cold Cuts) then Moe's is for you. There is something uniquely satisfying about a Moe's, like an ex girlfriend you know you shouldn't visit, but you get a hankering for the experience. Moe's has been smelling up offices for years - something about their Onions are... More
