I 'm hosting a super bowl party Feb 7, 2010. I need to get a 6 foot sub for 20 people. I live in sf valley, Los Angeles. My friends told me that Brent's deli makes a good 6 foot sub . I called Brent's in the sf valley and they said $ 119.00 for a 6 foot and serves 20-25 and has 8 lb meat and cheese. Brent's put Any meat choice.

And also they told me about Dan's super Subs in the sf valley . I called them and dan's sells it for $ 78 for a 6 foot sub. Comes with any meat you want , feeds again 20 - 25 people . They said that they use premium meats too. Dan's Subs put 7 lb meat and cheese , they said. I don't know what to do?. I don't want to spend a lot of money, But i want the best .

please Help me ?

    Finally I am here. Our super bowl 2010 party was a blast . We had 2 Four Foot subs from Dan's super subs. Giant subs were great and did feed over 25 people. Spicy italian was a bomb.
    I will be back for more next year.

      Thanks guys for all the information. After doing my research , I decided to go with Dan's Super Subs. I went to Dan's Subs and had a sub. I ordered turkey and roast beef and cheese. It tasted very good. All meats were premium and fresh. I must say , this place is a very busy place, and the service was super fast. I had about 9-10 people ahead of me and I got served in 10- 13 minutes. I asked one of the owners about super bowl and 6 footers and he explained everything about them . This guy was like an encyclopedia. Anyways, I was very impressed with their food, service and knowledge.
      I am getting 2 x 4 foot subs with mayo and mustard and sauces on the side for 25 people. One 4 foot all spicy Italian and the other roast beef , turkey , ham and cheese. All presliced. All same price. $ 104 total .
      Thanks again for all your info. I will post my comments about the party after the super bowl.

          The president of our Alfa club and his wife host a gathering once or twice a year, and he always gets his six-footer from here. I went with him to help load it into the car last time - tricky getting it through the ski pass-thru! It was easily the best of these I've ever had, though I'll admit my experience is limited. We got two three-footers from Pietro's on North Lake, which were okay except their bread has a leathery crust. Italia's bread is much better.

            orythe dog-thats a great suggestion. Italia is fantastic and has been around for 25 years. I wonder what their cost would be.

              I didn't pay too much attention to that part, but it seems to me my guy had negotiated a by-the-pound price - probably an especially good one, as he's a regular customer for these things. There did seem to be a certain amount of dickering going on...

                Correction: by the FOOT. Just looked on their website, always a good thing to do before spouting off!

              Concur.....forget about Dan's.....Italia is the place!

              If you are closer to Granada Hills there is another location there at Balboa & San Fernando Mission.

              Moneywise, I don't understand the appeal of a 6-foot sandwich. Dan's would break down to $13/ft. and Brent's at almost $20/ft. I suppose that you're paying for the visual appeal and delivery, but I'd rather save money by ordering a bunch of ft. long sandwiches of different varieties (you can maybe find out what types of meats & cheese your guests may prefer). I don't know the Sf Valley but I would think that lots of places can make terrific ft. long subs for about $8 or $9 apiece. With the savings you would have more money for other items---and beer!

                I would go to one of the Banh Mi places at Reseda/Sherman Way and buy an assortment of sandwiches for less than what you would pay for a traditional sub.

                          Some marketing genius at Lee's or Mr. Baguette is going to stumble on this sooner or later.

                          Buy 6 feet banh mi, get a keg of boba for free!

                              I just like the image of a boba keg and taking "boba bongs" from it ...

                                I'd hate to be there when someone gags on some boba and spits it all back out. ;)

                                Heck, even without a 6-footer, I'd be very very happy with an assortment of 30 or more banh mi to choose from, given the minimum of the price range the OP has mentioned. Head over to Banh Mi My Tho, place the order, slurp down a ca phe sua da and a couple of curry puffs while waiting in the parking lot, grab the order and head back home to the Valley.

                  Maybe check with DeFranko's Sub's they do a good job, I have never had Dan's or Cavaretti's.

                    Easy choice IMO. Dan's are known for their subs, have been doing the subs for many years, they are great. Brent's is a deli, Dan's is a sub shop. What more can I say?

                    I haven't had Brent's subs but Dan's regular size are pretty good, above average. Check out Cavaretti's Italian Deli and Market on Sherman Way. Their regular subs are superior to Dan's and I seem to recall that they have 6 footers. I'm sure that their prices will be less than Brent's, too.
