Best (Decent) chicken parmesan sub in Houston?
I've been in Houston 3 years by way of New York City. I love Houston's diverse restaurant scene, and I recently put together a series of lunches at work to find the best Fried Chicken in town (Beaver's edged out Barbeque Inn in a surprise finish. Breakfast Klub placed third, Frenchy's tragically 6th).
But I am desperate for a decent chicken parmesan sub! Does anyone have any suggestions of subs where the bread is fresh and crispy, the breaded chicken crunchy and juicy, the sauce homemade and rich, and the cheese perfectly oozy?
Thanks so much for your help!

Mandola's on Leeland and Cullen makes what I would consider a pretty tasty chicken parm. It is very old school with red sauce and lots of melty mozzarella. In general, it is a great place for really old school Italian -- spaghetti with sauce, lasagna, etc. Its family owned and the owners are really friendly. They are lunch only right now, but they are also in the middle of expanding and adding a patio and when they are done they are going to be open for dinner as well.
Now that you mention it, I bet Fred's makes a pretty good version.
I've never had the chicken parm sub specifically, but I've had enough other things to recommend you try it.
