The best hoagies you can find in New Jersey
It's a sandwich so good it gets a day named after it. May 5 is National Hoagie Day and what better place to celebrate it than in New Jersey?
Although some may call it a "sub," short for submarine, like at White House Subs in Atlantic City, some may say it's a Primo, we know exactly what a "hoagie" is.
We're talking the freshest of bread, delicious cold cuts, meats, and cheeses topped off with all kinds of possibilities like lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, oil, and vinegar, and if you're making one for me, hot or cold, it must include mayo.
So where are the rest of these great hoagies in New Jersey? I polled my listeners and social media, many of which are total foodies, and got these great places.
