If you're looking for a great bunch of people that make a killer sandwich (sandwich is an understatement- more like award winning monstrosities) you can't find a better place. The wait may be long, as it's a popular place for High Schoolers and Football Sundays, but the line moves fast and its worth it. "The Works" is a simple addition... More

Extraordinary family-run sandwich shop. Consistent quality and value. Dom's antipasto super hero and chicken club are winners.

This is the best sandwich shop on all of Long Island. Everything is fresh and delicious. I stop for a chicken cutlet club - with the works - anytime I am in the area. The whole/full sandwich is huge and big enough to share (you can order half). Salads are excellent also. I have also used them to cater -... More

Their quality has not changed in the 20+ years I have been going. Besides the heros, their dishes are fabulous. Big enough for two meals.

The constant line out the door speaks volumes. Well worth the wait. Fantastic subs, great quality meats with generous portions and fresh baked bread. Great value at $7.95 for a large sub that can feed two adults easily. Don't hesitate to detour to check this place out!

To make a sandwich at home makes sense for price. But when you look at money versus time versus effort a funny thing happens at my hero. The line scares you because waiting for a sandwich seems ridiculous and parking is hard. Then comes money. The value for the size is amazing. Why would anyone make a sandwich that big?... More

Food is always great! One hero is so large you can split it for two meals. Never been disappointed! Cash only business but value is great!
