            ***Warning to anyone who goes to Carluccio's, do NOT get a whole sub thinking you can finish it******

            My first time there I ordered a whole figuring I was hungry I could handle it. I ordered a fried chicken cutlet, eggplant, mozzarella, when the guy handed it to me it literally weighed 5lbs. It was like $23. and I couldn't finish half. It was lunch for 3 days.

        1. Tailercios in Middletown makes a great sandwich. Packed full of meat and a great number of combinations.

            Another vote for Taliercio's. A half sub there feeds two people easily. We bring them to Rutgers Football games all the time for a halftime snack.

              3rd vote for Taliercios

              A few not so well know places....

              Oceanview makes some solid sandwiches too in Long Branch.

              here is a hole in the wall place.....not sure this place is even open but the "bomber" at bevaquas in north middletown was killer (porkroll, egg cheese and hashbrown on an awesome roll.)

              I had a cheesesteak a few weeks ago at the pizza place next to the shoprite in west long branch...pretty damn good for around here.

              Phillys in atlantic highlands has a nice roast pork, broc rabe and sharp provolone sandwich.

              1. re: corvette johnny

                Bevaqua's is still there, but I'm pretty sure the ownership has changed hands. The famed 'Bomber' really had no 'pop' to it. A microwaved hashbrown patty, an overcooked egg, a few slices of undercooked pork roll, and some cheese.
                Bagel Time in Matawan, on the corner of Rt. 79 & 516 has been turning out a great breakfast sandwiches, on bagels of course.

                1. re: Herm

                  I haven't been there in years but I recall it was a lot better than you describe. Sounds like it has gone down hill. The bagel station has a good one in red bank

              1. re: coldsolderjoint

                Have worked in Middletown for many years but never heard of Taliercio's until this thread.

                Stopped by for lunch the other day, and had the "Healthy Choice" sub (hero roll). They cut it into two parts for to eat there in the store at a table, and the other 'to-go' which I put in the refrigerator for lunch the next day. Both meals were excellent quality & taste, and a good value for the price !

                I'm looking forward to eating there again soon. Very glad someone mentioned this as a good place to get a sandwich.

                { On an unrelated note, I was pleased to see there was a Trek bicycle store in the same plaza....never knew that was back there either. If you're a bicycle rider, might be worth checking it out }

              2. I had a tuna melt today at Jersey Freeze in Freehold that was ethereal. Wife had a hamburger with pork roll that she loved.

                1. re: MarlboroMan

                  I've passed that place many times and from the name I assumed they only had ice cream. I'll have to stop in for food some day.

                  1. re: ebchower

                    They sell ice cream & "ice cream stand" type of items at the walk-up (indoor) counter on the west end of the building.

                    The remainder of the building has separate entrances, and is more of a traditional sit-down place to eat with booths, tables, etc. and a menu to match....although you can also order food to-go there.

                    1. re: bakersma

                      I know this is a sandwich thread but the fried chicken wings from Jersey Freeze is excellent.

                  2. re: MarlboroMan

                    They are still open? I heard they sold and some "national" was building there.

                    1. re: jrvedivici

                      Yes, still open....Google "News Transcript Jersey Freeze" to see some of the past news items related to this --- every couple of years going back all the way to 2000 or thereabouts.
