Have a friend with a major craving for "the best meatball sub" in DC, preferably NW. Where should he go?

    Technically it's in NE (right next to Union Station), but Toscana Cafe makes a very good meatball sandwich.

        Try A. Litteri's in the Union Market, 517-519 Morse Street, N.E. (right off Florida Ave by Gallaudet) Its only 6 blocks into Northeast.

        Their italian coldcut subs, made to order, are the best, and they make a very good meatball sub.

          Second on Toscana--it's a delicious meatball sub. Can't speak to the other recommendations in the thread.

            I had a great one at Carmine's in Penn Quarter.

              Not a meatball sub exactly but I had an awesome turkey meatball sandwich from the food truck Sauca.They serve it on flatbread. It was really good!
