Dagwood’s Deli and Sub Shop’s signature club sandwich is a soft roll loaded with fresh ham, turkey, roast beef, bacon, cheddar and provolone with lettuce, tomato and onion and additional toppings such as pickles, banana peppers, black olives and, jalapenos, if you like.

Make sure you also try the Philly cheese steak dip, an excellent sandwich loaded with tender, perfectly seasoned eye prime beef and sautéed onions, peppers and mushrooms and a layer of melted provolone cheese. It comes with a cup of beef au’jus for added flavor.

Dagwood’s makes tuna salad just the way I like it, nicely seasoned with just the right amount of mayonnaise. Tuck a large serving of this delicious tuna salad into a soft roll, add lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles and salt and pepper and you have a divine tuna salad sub.

The sophisticated California club is a nice sandwich with turkey, bacon, provolone, avocado, mayonnaise, honey mustard, tomato, onions and lots of alfalfa sprouts. We enjoyed trying it.

And thank goodness it has a veggie sub for our vegetarian guest who enjoyed the alfalfa sprouts, lettuce, tomato, onions, pickles, black olives, cucumbers, green peppers and avocado spiced just right in a soft sub roll. In retrospect, she wished she had asked for a cheese to be added but enjoyed the sandwich as offered.

And if you prefer white or wheat sub roll, sliced white, wheat or rye bread or a wrap, just make that request for an easy substitution. Like it toasted? Dagwood’s will do that as well.

If you wish to go bread-less, no worries. Dagwood’s offers any sub made as a salad for the same price as the sub.

Dagwood’s is a simple little shop but delivers big on flavor, quality and friendliness.
