Sometimes all you need to make your day better is a gigantic sub sandwich filled with all of your favorite fixins. Whether it’s to help you get through the workday or maybe just to add a little bit of light into your lunch, sub sandwiches can be a game changer. Heck, just ask Publix. So the next time you’re itching to fill your belly with a sub sandwich of epic proportions, we have the perfect places to consider.
1. Hungry Bear Subs — 3399 NW 72nd Ave., Miami, FL 33122-1349
Hungry Bear Subs has been a local favorite in Florida for years. Serving up some of the most delicious subs around, this is a must if you’re looking for a deliciously fulfilling lunch. While we’re partial to the Italian sub, try the Philly Cheese. It’s a game-changer.
Publix subs have been something of a modern marvel for Florida residents. It’s hard to walk through a Publix, stomach growling, without pointing yourself in the direction of the deli. Publix subs can be made-to-order, so top it with all of your favorites and get to eating!
3. Lawless Subs — 445 FL-436 #1033, Altamonte Springs, FL 32714
This is your typical sandwich shop, except it has leveled up flavor like you wouldn’t believe. Tucked away in a strip mall, this is one hidden gem sub shop that you do not want to miss. Try the "Lawlinator" for a meaty sub that is brimming with deliciousness.
4. Mr. M’s Sandwich Shop — 3325 S University Dr. #122, Davie, FL 33328
Mr. M's has a couple of locations in Florida which is just a testament to how darn good the subs are. Classic subs, filled with fresh deli meats and cheeses, a perfect midday meal. Think you can tackle a sub this size? Gather your friends and family and give it a whirl.
5. Kappy's Subs — 501 N Orlando Ave., Maitland, FL 32751
Kappy’s in Orlando is the type of old-school sandwich shop that we need more of. Taking a cue from the Great American Diner, Kappy’s Subs are never a disappointment. If you’re looking for a soul-satisfying sub, get the Philly Cheesesteak. It's always a win.
7. V&S Italian Deli — 2621 N Federal Hwy., Boca Raton, FL 33431
You really can’t go wrong with an old-fashioned Italian deli. Serving up the best-of-the-best in terms of both hot and cold subs, this will easily become your new favorite lunch option. It’s tiny. It’s busy. But it will blow you away in terms of flavor.
8. Hogan's Great Sandwiches — 2327 NW 13th St., Gainesville, FL 32609
A Gainesville classic sub shop, Hogan’s Great Sandwiches always delivers. Opened for more than 30 years, if there is one thing that has remained most consistent from Hogan’s, it’s the deliciousness of the sub sandwiches.
9. Brocato Sandwich Shop — 5021 E Columbus Dr., Tampa, FL 33619-2401
Since 1948, Brocato’s Sandwich Shop serves up American/Spanish fusion food that will blow you away. If you’re looking for a sandwich that will change your lunch indefinitely, order the Cuban. You can thank us later.
10. D’Best Sandwich Shop — 5201 N Dixie Hwy., Boca Raton, FL 33487
Despite the fact these sandwiches are insanely delicious year round, it's the seasonal Pilgrim sub that makes this place special. Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, sounds too good to be true, right? Well, ya better believe it, baby.
11. Drake’s Deli — 138 San Marco Ave., St. Augustine, FL 32084-3265
You know a good sub shop when they pile on the deli meats so high you have to question how you'll get your mouth around it. Drake's Deli in St. Augustine is the type of place that will blow you away in flavor, but also they don't skimp on meats. So it's a win-win.
