There are a zillion sandwich shops near the University of Michigan campus, and the new Joe's Sub Shop didn't promise much with its huge banners proclaiming "Home of the 16-inch Sub"--sounded like a monument to the excesses of student eating (not that I couldn't have put one away myself once upon a time). But I sometimes have a hankering for Philly cheesesteaks, so I stopped in. And then I went back again. I haven't tried the other subs, but the cheesesteaks are good. There is an eight-inch size. The meat is tender. The veggies are fresh. You can get provolone, Swiss, or American cheese, plus your choice of many other free toppings including the traditional crushed red pepper sauce. I like to mix hot sauce and ranch dressing, and the owner, who is really named Joe, did that. Takeout, with five or six tables, and definitely better than the chain sub places along State St.
