Where can I get a huge italian sub/hero sandwich for superbowl?

  • l

You know, an old school 6 foot italian sandwich. Something I can serve with beer and fritos. I live on the Lower East Side and someplace that delivers would be best. THANKS!

  1. Manganaro's Hero Boy Restaurant & Catering
    492 9th Avenue
    New York, NY
    (212) 947- 7325

    1. Does anyone have any alternatives to Manganaro's in the same vicinity that delivers on Sundays? We've used them to cater our Super Bowl party for the past 2 years that we have at a Times Square hotel but was hoping to try another place for a couple of 3 foot heros plus salads, etc. Noticed a couple of postings about Luigi's on 8th and 55th. Any other suggestions? Appreciate your help.

      1. I would check with Parisi's bakery on Mott--not sure if they do the six-foot sub thing or if they deliver, but they have awesome sandwiches so it's definitely worth seeing if they do.


        1. I called Manganaro's this morning -- they no longer make the extra long italian hero...they only put together sandwich platters. Not nearly as exciting...

          Please recommend places in LES, Little Italy, etc.

          1. Manganaro's is an invisible shadow of what it once was. Run far away.

              Yes, run very far....and don't look back!
              You may wanna give Parisi a try...

                unfortunately, parisi is not open on sundays. they recommended Hero Boy or Alleva. Has anyone heard of either of those two? Alleva was about 1/2 the price of parisi, which made me kind of nervous...
