The elusive meatball sandwich

phungi | Oct 22, 2007 11:26 AM

I am forever in search of the great meatball sandwich. I like good homemade meatballs, not too firm, softened from cooking in tasty sauce, and on a great roll. The cheese can either be on the roll or baked on top,

Thus far, the best I have had is at White House Subs in Atlantic City. The homemade meatballs almost crumble from the sauce and pressure of the bite, but a hard/half meatball never falls out of the roll... oh, the magnificent Jersey shore roll. Sacko's in Ventnor is a close second.

In the Philly suburbs, the best I have had is at Rittenhouse Deli in Armore... homemade meatballs, great sauce and consistency, but not quite "the best" and not in the same league as White House and Sackos. Dakota Pizza in Wynnewood has a good meatball parm, with meatballs on the firmer side... the center of the meatball is sometimes too firm and not softened by the sauce... the roll sometimes is too firm/crispy, but a decent sandwich.

Where in the Philly area can you point me for that elusive "great" meatball sandwich?
