The bread is what makes a sandwich. Mike's sandwiches are good but overpriced. Sub shack has always been our place but now the grove has been renewed . We just need a good cheese steak.

Jersey Mike's is good, not cheap but fair given the quality ingredients. Looking forward to trying PrimoHoagies.


Not a fan of Jersey Mike's. I don't like the generic, no name, meat and cheese they put on their subs. According to the company website they use Thumann's Meats so it sounds promising.

Great another chain food store. I guess it will last longer than the non chain pho place that looks ready to board up.

Primo Hoagies is outstanding! I used to go to one in Ewing, NJ several times a week. It's a real Italian deli and the hoagies are amazing!

Hey - you have to go where you competition is at and go head to head....imo
Think Mike's is much larger in scale franchise...

Never had Primo's but they have 5 different kinds of Italian subs...so that's seems legit to me and I miss Piggy's so I would have eventually walked in the place and bought something.

Peace out


Jersey Mikes is Ok. Really only a step up in quality above Subway. Primo looks to be a step above that. Will give it a try but will still take a good ol’ homegrown Jersey sub place any day of the week before any of these chains. And yes de bring back Piggies.

Jersey Mikes is expensive, not very large for l/2 sub and not worth the drive. Can't beat SUB SHACK but watch the time. They close ealy often.

Sub shack is good but the fact that they don’t accept credit cards has kept me from going there probably a dozen times. I’ll be out and about and decide to pick up some dinner or lunch for the family. The thought of sub shack goes through my mind but I rarely carry cash so the thought quickly passes and I end up going to one of the 20 other food options that do accept credit.

They are also putting in a Premio Hoagies by the Rockaway Mall.

Sub Shack does Door Dash.. pick up or have it delivered.


Jersey Mike's are way too expensive for the quality and amount of filling.
Subshack is terrific - great bread, good quality and plenty of fillings - and the price is very good.

It's a bit further but sandwiches unlimited in Roxbury/ledgewood has kick ass sammiches! We got 5 subs cut up for a party last week, great food fair price and they gave us mustard oil/vinegar and mayo in to-go containers

Any update on when this primo location will open? I keep checking online and while it’s listed on Bing as “open” their website says the closest location is rockaway.

Re: PrimoHoagies

Here’s a screenshot from Google. Looks like they’ll open April 26th. Based on local reviews of other locations, it looks “iffy”

Looks good, looks like an alternative to Jersey Mikes.


Roywhite, nice article. I am looking forward to Primo's opening. Did you notice that they are the only store that listed what kind of meat they use? The article said Thumann's which I think it pretty good, especially when compared to the other places (Wawa, QC, Jersey Mikes) that all use mystery meat.

Just Googled Primo's, looks like a July 1st opening now.

I don't think they are coming - the signs are all down and it looks like for rent sign is back up.

I wonder if that may have something to do with the death of the founder of Primo Hoagies recently (May 5th), or if they found a more suitable location nearby. Their Facebook page still says "Under construction, coming soon," by the way:

He was only 65, and apparently was definitely a "Primo" guy who really cared about his family and the community:

de,

I think Primos is still coming. They only rented half of the old Piggies space. I think the for rent sign is for the other half.

Probably not It's a franchise with many locations so probably more an issue with franchisee. I poked my head in a few months ago cause was looking forward to it and they did some work in there but not recently and they took all signs down. It'not comingd. Imo. Think there is 1 at the Rockaway mall.


Spoke to a future employee, opens end of month. We’ll see.
