Looking for good sub shop in bergen county, where they slice meat to order, and topings etc are fresh. Good bread. Preferably a family place, the chains just dont do it for me

    Try Nosher Rye in Allendale. http://www.nosherrye.com/ It is a kosher style Deli with great home made food and huge sandwiches. Eat in or take out. Good prepared foods too, in case you do not want to cook tonight.

      Another good rec. They are excellent. They are kosher style, not officially kosher. The good news is that they're quite a bit cheaper (on most items, anyway) than the kosher places, like the Kosher Nosh. Not only are the sandwiches good, their matzo ball soup is also the best I've had from any of the Jewish delis, hands down, and also the cheapest. (I think they charge $6.50 for a quart of matzo ball soup, the same at the Kosher Nosh will probably run $10.00 or $11.00 these days.)

        My favorite deli in Hoboken has opened up a shop in Hackensack - M & P Biancamano on Main st. Same huge Italian sandwiches that I loved back in the day. Now theres a decision to be made when the Italian hero craving comes, M&P Biancamano, or Visentini Bros in Lodi. A good problem to have, I guess... Cosmos a very close 2nd to these IMHO

      The guy at A Family Affair deli in Fair Lawn knows how to make a sandwich. Nice family run place. No idiot kids making sandwiches or waiting on you.

        Forget Amato's in Northvale. Just cross the street to La Casa Formoso. Everything is better! Much better bread, great cold cuts, people are friendly. Even the prepared food is far superior to Amato.

          I actually love the Petrillo's Deli which is right there too.
          Down the Street right over the NY boarder is Di Maria's. They have a lot of nice sadwich options.

            One + Petrillo's is right across the St. from my favorite local place, The Greek Village.

          Some good recommendations here -- Cosmos is a good one.

          I strongly recommend Dante's in River Edge, right next door to Hackensack.

            I discovered Giovanni's in Fair Lawn about a year ago, and they are great. They make almost everything fresh (even their own mozzarella), and prices are reasonable. My current favorite is something called a Mia Salad, which has balsamic breaded chicken, tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, and basil in a balsamic dressing, but their sandwiches are good too. They are VERY popular, so call in or be prepared to wait a while if you go during prime lunch time. Italian Riviera in Waldwick also makes good sandwiches, especially a good Italian sub. La Strada in Midland Park is another popular place worth checking out.

              Thanks for the info on Giovanni's. I will be in the area next week and am looking forward to stopping in for some sandwiches.

                  Cosmos is a great Italian deli. I also recommend Visentini Brothers in Lodi for Italian sandwiches cold cuts, etc

                  E,

                  Are you as offended as I am by the price increases @ Clemente's since their renovations? As an example, I purchased rolls there and the cost doubled.....a hero roll was $1.20. My nephew was making sandwiches for a party bus.....when the girl said $36 for two dozen, I questioned her if she was charging the right price.....and she was indignant towards me for even asking..

                  I no longer recommend Clemente's....and with due respect to (michele cindy), I really dislike the owner of Amato Bread.

                  If you are ever in Fairview, I recommend Valente Bakery Salumeria and Deli....

                    I don't think I've come across the owner yet.... I don't go often, usually around the holidays, Anyone know what happened to the poster mention1? I saw their name in the old post, they haven't posted anything since Jan 12, very odd, since they were a fairly frequent poster.

                    Definitely A&S Fine Foods in Wyckoff....Cedar Hill Ave. The breads are top-notch as are all their meats. Make sure that you tell them in detail how you want your sandwich made.

                      Not sure where you are in BC, but In Northvale there's Amato Bread and Deli on Livingston St. and across the St. La Casa Formosa.
