    I know. If those Italian subs were not full of nitrates and sodium I would eat them more often. It’s sucks getting older and becoming aware of nutritional values. When I was younger I just ate anything without a second thought.

    Braised beef sandwich from Stockyard sandwich Co. with house made wiz. Also with their fried potatoes which are one of the crunchiest things I’ve ever eaten. So good.

    ^ Funny thing is I used to crush that 12 inch and the pasta salad in one sitting all day long growing up. I thought about it today but wussed out after eating half. 😂 

    F Me, you’re right bud. The pasta salad is bomb and just as exciting as the sub for me since I get both so infrequently. Delish 
  • RiotZactRiotZact Posts: 5,606
    Yeah that pasta salad is what caught my eye the most. Going to have to get some now.

    Dinics. Their hoagies are underrated because everyone goes there for the roast pork. This one was PHENOMENAL.

    The roast pork is great there, of course, but everythings I've had there has been delicious.
    That looks great!

    I've never had long hots.  They don't put them on sandwiches here, but I'd definitely like to try them.

    A sub is a watercraft capable of independent operation underwater. A hoagie is a delicious sandwich. Beat it.

    You probably call them "grinders" too.  Did you order a "pop" with it?

    I don't know what a pop is. Soda?

    Grinder is just a hoagie that's been heated up.

    Yeah a pop is soda.  I didn't realize a grinder is heated up, I thought sub, hero, hoagie and grinder were the same thing.

    https://www.thekitchn.com/hoagies-heroes-subs-and-grinders-whats-the-deal-with-these-sandwich-names-222944
    Layer some meat, maybe some cheese, a spread, and your favorite toppings between two slices of bread and you’ve got yourself a sandwich. Swap that bread for a long, thick roll (the longer, the better) and you’ve got something else entirely. This isn’t just a sandwich — it’s something far greater.

    As for what it’s called, however, that’s a whole other thing. Hoagie, sub, grinder — what’s the deal with all these names for a fairly straightforward food?

    Subs

     

    Growing up in northern New Jersey, I knew these sandwiches — piled high with meat, cheese, fixings, and dressing — by one name: a sub. Served on a long Italian roll anywhere from six inches to six feet, this sandwich is named for its resemblance to a submarine.

    “Sub” is probably the most widely used name for this type of cold sandwich. Whether you’re in the north, south, east coast, west coast, or midwest, you’ve probably used this term before. (Or at the very least, you’ve heard of it.)

    Hoagies

    Going to college in Pennsylvania taught me that people from Philadelphia and South Jersey are adamant about calling this sandwich a “hoagie.” Like a sub, hoagies are also served cold, but have a stronger association with Italian-Ameican culture.

    There are several theories surrounding the origin of this sandwich’s name. One of my favorites is that these sandwiches got their name from popularity among the Italian immigrants who worked at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, once known as Hog Island. These workers were known as “hoggies,” which eventually morphed into “hoagies.”

    Heroes

    This sandwich variation hails from New York City, and is seemingly the most versatile. It uses a range of different fillings that span beyond meat and cheese, and can be served warm or cold.

    One fun explanation is that the name implies the heroic effort needed to actually eat this sandwich.

    Grinders

    This sandwich variation is well-known among New Englanders, and can be served warm or cold. Instead of cold cuts and cheese, you might also find grinders filled with meatballs or sliced chicken breast.

    One theory is that these long sandwiches got their name because they require so much grinding or chewing.

    What do you call this type of sandwich?

    It’s always been sub to me.

    Hmm...never knew of the New England vernacular. I don't normally get a grinder but, around here, it's just a hoagie thrown in the oven for a bit. 

    God damnit....I want another hoagie now

    Don't believe the hype. We don't call them grinders here. We call them subs.
    Maybe in Maine or Vermont, I don't know,
    This weekend we rock Portland
