Ham and cheddar with the basics plus jalapeno toasted=delicious Meatball sub with cheese also delicious have been here lots but I only get those two things because I love them so. A little more expensive than subway, but exponentially more delicious.

We visited the northeast location on April 21st. The day after 4/20 - and the ambiance of the previous day's "420" attitude was still prevalent one full day afterwards. Some unfortunate looking creature came out of the back and barked a rather loud weed induced "what can I getcha?" After explaining it to her twice, the order was completely wrong.... More

Their subs are piled high with ingredients and are very tasty. The help look like hippies but the food is great.

When you want a sub in Springfield, this is the place to go. The sweet bread is fabulous. It's locally owned, and you're not going to find another like it!

I have never actually been to one of the Head West Shops. My friend works in Springfield & he has brought subs home a few times. They are always very fresh & the bread is excellent. I wish we had a Head West shop in Taylorville where I live.

Whenever I go home to Springfield I always go to Head West Sub Shop. Number 9 which is, Turkey, Ham, Roast Beef, & Provolone is the best sandwich there. I order this sub with the sweet bread.
