Question re: White House Subs

So I've been craving a sub from there and was going to hit up the place on Saturday. Now my friend coming is on a strict diet so she is saying subs are out. Since I've only eaten subs there, I don't know the answer to my question. But do they have salads? Because I need a sub :) and am determined go there (ok, might have to be take-out then...).

  1. No salads....sorry, but if you cross Artic Avenue, go to Formicas bakery...they may have salads.....just get your hoagie "to go" and eat it over there

    1. Just a few (maybe three?) blocks south of White House, on the same side, is Little Saigon, an excellent Vietnamese place - they're casual, inexpensive and have tons of vegetarian/low cal options - everything on the menu may be ordered to go, as well.

      1. 1. Get Sub. 2. Take out whatever filing. 3. Don't eat bread. 4. See Five Easy Pieces, circa 1970.

            As well you should. WH is sui generis ("like no other"). And, just the experience of being there, even if one does not eat, is Chowish.

              OK, at the risk of being shot by fellow Chowsers, I just don't all the raves for this place. Yeah, the hoagies are good but...they could use a little more oomph and meat, in my opinion. If there is a line of people out the door and down the street and after an hour of waiting on your feet, you want to sit and enjoy your meal, you'll get rushed practically out of your seat. Our family has owned property in AC for 30 years and every few years or so, I'll go back and try it again and always leave a touch underwhelmed. Ok, putting on my body armour now...

                  I agree. Not a fan of the White House either. Don't know what all the fuss is about.

            2. Well I made an attempt to get a cheesesteak Saturday evening. I didn't think the line was that bad. The take out counter called 77 as I walked in and got 85. After waiting a half hour (by that point they had just called 80) I had to leave as I needed to check into my hotel and get ready for a show. So sadly I didn't get to try a cheesesteak from White House. Maybe next time.

                While I really enjoy the subs at Whitehouse (the Italian in particular), the cheesesteak, at least to me, is nothing special. I don't think you missed much (other than your 30 minute time investment).

                  For the classic NJ "sub" I have always been a faithful to Mikes in Keyport on Front Street. Family owned for 50 years..heres the scoop...fresh thin sliced meats...(no not Boars Head) cheese, FRESH baked sub bread..light crust..moist absorbant middle. And heres the finish...SALT...yeah I know its bad for us, Garlic, Oregano frsh shredded iceberg and onions. There are a lot of places that give "more" in the meat department, but the true submarine shouldnt be a TMJ jam breaker. Try them you wont be sorry. I always indulge in a side bag of Onion Garlic WISE chips and a Stewarts Root Beer too when Im there. As far as subs..Im addicted to the pepperoni and provolone...the actually slice the stick into thin ribbons. Yup...nothin like it!

                    as much as i frequent all of the other establishments in keyport, i've yet to try mike's, despite hearing numerous reviews. i guess i just forget about that place all the time since i don't always drive past the post office. i'll have to try mike's soon.
