Amazing meat, crispy bread, great soups, best subs! – I figure that since I have been old enough to make my own lunch decisions, I have had lunch around 6,500 times. I would not be surprised if 5000 of those lunches would have included one species of sandwich or another. Why then would yet another sandwich move me? Why drive 5 miles for a taste when there’s a Subway on every corner? Well, quite simply, because Mrs. Nemo’s split pea soup and the Captain’s Northern Italian sub is probably the most memorable lunch combination ever. The best cuts of meat, so thin you can see through them, the best bread and the freshest ingredients. There’s never anyone in the place and I honestly do not know how they stay open. So go help out. Just don’t get in line in front of me.
Good bread – Good sammiches. I order them hot, but you have the option of hot or cold. Their bread is good, and the meats are fresh and flavorful. The turkey chili is better than the beef chili - more robust flavor.
Get your order to go though. When it gets busy, the staff forgets to wipe down tables and sweep the floor, and it can get a little messy.
Local sandwich shop serves up fresh-made soups, subs and chili. – In Short
This casual, family-owned chain has made a name for itself with crowd-pleasing sandwiches served on fresh Gonnella bread. Families and hungry singles step up to the counter for turkey clubs and meatball sandwiches, but Nemo's is most famous for its Italian beef: thinly sliced, peppery Black Angus beef soaked in jus and cradled in a chewy-crispy roll. Thick, spicy chili is another signature dish, available in three varieties: turkey, beef, or vegetarian.
High Flyer! – These are the best subs in the city hands down. Better bang for your buck and better flavor than Potbelly or anywhere else. Unique sandwich options on large menu consisting of hot, cold and toasted subs.
