Twin Cities: Subs, Grinders, Hoagies
Gentle nudge: By using examples of faraway places and not describing exactly what it is you consider great, you're pretty much eliminating 99.999% of recommendations you might get.
Example: I had an outstanding meatball sub from Brianno's last night. Fantastic sauce, giant, flavorful meatballs, gooey provolone, and crunchy/chewy bread. IF you like that kind of sandwich, it's worth driving across town for. I also love their Italian Beef and cold cut sub (Brianno's Special). But I have no idea if that's even close to what you're interested in.
