Dagwood #1 Sub Shop???

As soon as you walk into the Dagwood Deli you see a little sign that says, "Ranked #1 Sub Shop because of the support of #1 customers". Well, my interest was immediately peeked to say the least. I have eaten in quite a few sub shops in Indian River County, all of which have been great. But "Best"? That's a big claim!

Did the Dagwood have what it takes to hit 5 thumbs here in the Lunch Box? Could we dare say that they are #1 with other great sub shops out there? What makes a sub shop #1 anyway?

 They say first impression is the most important and my first impression of The Dagwood Deli blew me out of the water! I was greeted right away by owner Josh Jenkins. Josh's hospitality and charisma was electric. As you walk through the door you are treated as a friend. Not only that, but if you are a repeat customer Josh makes it a point to remember your name! Kind of reminds me of the show "Cheers" where "everybody knows your name". Josh was interacting with his customers in real and authentic ways. Talks of sports, family, and everyday life brings the atmosphere of the Dagwood alive! This is the "Barber Shop" of sub shops!

Now, about that #1 sub shop thing. I ordered "The Dagwood" being it was the signature sandwich. I ordered it warm at Josh's recommendation. This sandwich is loaded with oven roasted ham, turkey, roast beef, pepperoni, bacon and two cheeses; Cheddar & Provolone! I ordered it "all the way" with fresh toppings of lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles, black olives, banana peppers, and jalapenos. It was a perfect blend of meat and toppings. The bread was softly toasted and the sandwich melted with savory taste in every bite! All for $8.75.

Trip Adviser ranks Dagwood at #1 for subs and I think The Lunch Box agrees! Not only would we say that the sub is #1, but the eatery for it's superior customer service is #1 in our book. There is a lot to be said about a great sandwich, but even more about the hands that make them!

Thanks to Heather Helton For the recommendation

It is with great honor & satisfied stomach that the Indian River Lunch Box gives The Dagwood Deli
