Any suggestions for the best submarine sandwich places?

  1. Try Manzo's in LaSalle. Homemade buns, good fillings, tasty dressing.

      Royal Submarine on bernard and st laurent is a classic greasy spot.

        Agree 100% Manzo is my favorite too

        1. re: kpzoo

          Used to love Manzo's but seems they are living off their rep for far too long now. Had a manzo's special last week and was soaked with dressing/grease. Each time I picked up the sandwich it would stream out the bag, major turn-off.

            Thanks to all the hounds that recommended Manzo’s. We had a really fabulous experience with both the submarine and pizza.
            The Manzo special sous-marine is definitely the way to go. It has steak, sausage and pepperoni on it. The bread is pizza dough but somehow takes on another identity as the perfect encasement for the deliciousness. It was a bit greasy but just enough to make it tasty and join forces with the home made Italian dressing and mayo. I would say its more “juicy” than greasy. Just lots and lots of flavour. Everything you could want in a sous-marine Sammy! Lots of perfectly crisp shredded lettuce, fresh tomatoes, onions with melted mozzarella cheese. The place is an institution and a complete gem. The prices are very reasonable and the portions are MASSIVE. The pizza is LOADED with cheese. Its sauce was fresh and the toppings are also really generous. Great thick crust perfectly baked pie. The service is incredible. So friendly and accommodating. The cook even came out to say hi and ask how everything was as he found out that we came a long way for the food (we were there very late and it wasn’t busy). Why isn’t anyone doing these sandwiches in Toronto? My photography is less than great but hopefully you get the idea.

              Glad you liked Manzo's, thanks for the report!

              Here's an updated link to their site:

              For those who live in LaSalle, you can even order for delivery online now. :-)

            I had Manzo's for the first time tonight. WOW! The hype is real. Mine was not drenched in sauce unlike previous comment. The bread was delicious and crunchy. I think I'm full for the weekend with that 14".

          3. Momesso's on Upper Lachine Road is also very good.

              I only wish Momesso's had better bread. I like the filling but sadly the bread's just ho hum standard white submarine buns - at least the last time I went.

              1. Pizza Nino on Monk in Ville Emard:
                6588 Monk

                1. Had the steak sub at copoli near metro vendome. The filling is nice, although quite basic (lettuce, mozzarella, tomatos, onions (not listed on the menu), pickles and italian dressing (not drowning in it). There was quite a lot of meat and it was well seasoned. The bread was your typical sub bread, but it was toasted well on the outside. It came to about 10$ tax included for 7inch.
