I like Submarine Sandwiches - Heros - Spuckies - whatever. Does anyone have a "Sub to die for" place?

I've heard that Kelly's Kitchen at the People's Corner Market in Medford is good for cold-cut Subs. I get Vietnamese Subs on Dot. Ave - on French bread and stuffed with Shumae, cilantro, cucumbers, sauce and small green chilies for two bucks a shot.

Here is a post from last October ---

Message: "Okay, here's a low end gem from my college days, but it is without doubt the best Italian Sandwich store I have ever been to (and I grew up in Philly). The place is called Bob's Food Store, in Somerville. It is just off campus from Tufts but I cannot tell you exactly how to get there. Come to think of it, you could say the same for almost every decent place in Boston .

But I can tell you this: go to Bob's as soon as possible.

It's a deli with grill in back. Bob himself is often there, and he is a classic Boston storefront guy. His Chicken Pahm is simply amazing-perfect blend of sauce and provie, and the chicken is white and dry. The jumbo steak and cheese actually breathes when you squeeze the sesame seed bun, and he melts the cheeze into the meat while it is still on the grill.

Need more? I usually cant stand Italian coldcuts, but even this is a great sandwich at Bob's. And the marinated steak tips sub is legendary-although the last one I had was a littlen on the chewy side. It takes a few minutes to get your food, so have them Nuke a piece of deep dish pizza while you wait.

My friends and I always wonder why there is not a comparable sandwich store in New York. We even drive up there a few times each year, 4 hours each way, to get a sandwich from Bob's. Of all the places I discovered while living in Boston-Kelly's in Revere, Nick's Beef and Beer near Harvard, Big Freddy's Roast Beef in Salem, and the "Cold Tea" at Moon Villa-this place is TRULY worth it. Just don't tell them you go to Tufts. You'll see why!"
Subs abound - but who has The Best?
