Not so great – Why are there HUNDREDS of Subways and Quizno's in the Houston area? Because the market was WIDE OPEN for them in the 80's and 90's when Antones was the only competition with their dull and lifeless pickle-flavored sandwiches. "Nuf said! There are over 300 Subways alone that are nearly all very profitable due to careful growth and store placement.
One of the Last Originals! – This is one of the last family owned original Antone's!
You can always tell them apart by the quality of the bread and meats, but the giveaway is the stuffed Jalapenos! (The original uses blended cheeses to help keep it together, and the corp locations just uses watery pimento cheese that is nothing more than nasty and messy)
I always opt for the Super, a bag of chips and an ice cold Dr Pepper!
I hope the Anton'e family can reclaim all of their locations back someday!
Po-Boys Worth Traveling For – I love this Antone's because they still serve the Piggy Po-Boy! If I still lived in Houston, I would probably eat here at least once a week. I dream about the place all the time and I hope that a visit is in my near future. I am only an hour and a half from Houston, but when I get the urge for a Piggy, that is TOO far! The restaurant itself also has a great atmosphere... very relaxed and casual with a European flavor to it. I brought a friend of mine from France to eat there and he loved it as well. Long live Antone's!
*licks lips* – This place is the definition of awesome. My dad's been coming here ever since he was a boy, and I've grown up on their smoked turkey po'boys and chow chow myself. The employees are always very kind and eager to help you, and the way the deli is run is reminiscent to the way delis were handled back in the old days. Check this place out! You will NOT be disappointed.
