11 Best Subs In New Jersey, Ranked
11: Chicken Parmigiana
There are a lot of great chicken parmigiana subs in New Jersey, but the one from Carmine’s Italian Deli is too good to pass up. It's difficult to get a chicken parm wrong, but Carmine’s quality is truly standout and consistent, with a well-done chicken cutlet, balanced sauce, and melty mozzarella.
10. Fat Darrell
The Fat Darrell from RU Hungry? has been featured on numerous different television shows over the course of decades, and Maxim rated it the best sandwich in the U.S. in 2004. This iconic NJ "fat sandwich" is loaded with french fries, mozzarella sticks, and chicken fingers with a heap of marinara sauce.
9. No. 17
The delightfully simple No. 17 at Cangiano’s in Jersey City consists of salty, fatty, prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, and sweet and spicy fig jam. Cangiano’s is a classic Italian deli and market that's worth a visit any time, and its extensive menu is sure to whet the appetite of even the pickiest eater.
8. Joe Leone’s Italian
Joe Leone’s classic Italian submarine includes salami, prosciutto, capicola, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and mozzarella. There are locations in both Point Pleasant and Manasquan, and their sandwich menu is also customizable, with customers able to choose from different meats, bread, and more.
7. Cuban Sandwich
This Cuban sandwich from La Pola isn’t technically a sub, but it’s too good to pass up. The loaded sandwich is made up of freshly sliced sweet ham, pernil (roasted pork), delicious pickles, Swiss cheese, mayo, and mustard pressed between authentic Cubano bread from Cuban Bakery in Union City.
