Victor Jr's in CC - VERY Tasty Sub!

Moose | Apr 27, 2007 07:18 PM

I decided to try this place on a whim, as I had heard about it here, and just happened to drive by. I ordered the Italian Sub fully loaded, which when my number was called, came wrapped in one of those nifty retro submarine/torpedo sandwich condoms/sleeves.

When I got back to the office, I pulled it out of the sleeve and unwrapped it to find quite a heft sandwich sliced diagonally. Sub was nicely stacked with fresh lettuce, provolone, and roma tomatoes, along with capp, salami, and mortadella. It seemed like they dressed it with oil and vinegar.

I was hooked on the first bite. The bread was crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside - very fresh. The meats were tasty too, although if I had one complaint, it would be that it could have used a little more meat, but I find most subs lacking in that dept. Regardless, the quality of all of the ingredients created a synergy for me that is lacking in most subs due to one or more lower quality ingredients. This was not the case, and was a first rate sandwich.

It seems that they do a pretty brisk pizza business, and from what I could see they had some very nice looking NY pies.

The bottom line is that I'm delighted to have found a very good sub on the Westside - it certainly blows away Bay Cities, which I find terribly overrated.

Next time when I'm at Victor's I think I'll try either the sausage or meatball hot subs.
