    The Italian hoagie offers the perfectly balanced ratio of meat-cheese-fixins'. The sandwich is stacked with prosciutto, capicola, pepperoni, salami and provolone, plus house-made mayo and relish. Read more

    The Italian is awesome. Finally a good sandwich place in DC. I've waited years for a place like this. Very fresh and a great combo of sauces...the mayo, bubs vinaigrette, and homemade hoagie relish.

    Bub's Italian hoagie is one of the best in the area: Genoa salami, prosciutto, capicola, pepperoni, aged provolone, arugula, roma tomatoes, hoagie relish, mayo, Bub’s vinaigrette & pecorino Romano.

    This small family-run joint is known for its Italian hoagie. That being said, anything on the menu, from the beef brisket to the chicken Parm, will blow you away…and then will make you take a nap. Read more

    As a Philly-area native, this is about as close to a real hoagie and cheesesteak as you can get! Bub and Pop's is a perfect lunch spot. You won't leave hungry; their sandwiches are huge!

    They have the best sandwiches and chips in Virginia and DC. Everything on the menu is amazing. My only complaint is that I spend too much money from going there all the time and i eat too much.

    I suggest you try the Italian Hoagie. It's the best of the bunch, as far as I can see it. They are all delicious though. And really fresh. The chips are good, too. Nice atmosphere and great location.

    Cute mom and pop sandwich shop with great ingredients. Half a sandwich is the perfect size for lunch. Hit the pepper bar before u leave

    Italian (maybe ask for light on sauce) and Brisket are fantastic. The roast pork also looks/smells fantastic. Homemade pickles are good too and large enough to share.

    A D.C. institution. This is the standard for local businesses. Authentic; always made with love. Hands down the best sandwich shop in the city.

    Great sandwiches - try the Italian or the brisket. The clam chowder is also a solid option, kind of a mix between Manhattan and New England styles (plus bacon!).

    They get everything right. Immense lunch crowds. (But you can usually still get a seat somehow!) I wish DC had more places like this.

    Get the cherry ice mixed with the chocolate ice. The chocolate doesn't use dairy, it's amazing. The samples are huge! Try one.

    Get the whole brisket--it's enough for lunch and dinner, but so good you'll want to finish in one sitting.

    I'm sorry, this place isn't that great. Sometimes DC people have a hard time spotting good food. If you want a real sandwich go to Ike's Place if you're ever in San Francisco.
