White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City! That’s a meaty feast!



Now that is a submarine sandwich! Absolutely worth a visit of epic calorie consumption, and totally worthy of the hype. As we entered the hallowed halls of this tiny yet famous sandwich shop I immediately started salivating.

We took a spot at one of the age worn booths and marveled at all the memorabilia, pictures, and signs hanging on the wall by us. It’s like a who’s who of celebrity days gone by – Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., former Miss America’s, former NJ politicians, Mr T, yellowed newspaper clippings, family and friends, etc. We were handed menus that are short but get right to the point. No frills here. Just go for it!

Went right for their original famous Italian submarine. Even though they claim it is 80% fat free it still felt like a weeks load of calories! I ordered a whole sub as I was starving and did not want to share this massive sandwich with anyone!

Now, a whole sub is $14.50 and a half sub is $7.25 – both worth every penny! The whole sub is gigantic! Like two feet long and stuffed with amazing tasting Italian meats, onions, hot pepper relish, vinegar, and all this inside a tasty hard but soft sub roll. Just delicious!

I actually felt pregnant after eating this thing. I was stuffed, but oh so content and happy. Almost euphoric. Sat my fat ass down at a blackjack table after eating this and did not want to move for a long time. I couldn’t if I tried.


Even after all this time the portions are still huge here. Been around since 1946. The place is still a dinky grimy old school hole in the wall with faded pictures plastered everywhere of celebrities, politicians, and famous folks who have enjoyed a sandwich here over the years. I love these kinds of spots. Cash only so hit the ATM machine before you arrive. Also, surely not for those calorie counting, or if a vegan.

It’s always better to order your sub, eat half as you will be stuffed anyway, and bring the other half home to sit overnight and let the dressing and juices marinate into the meats, bread, and ingredients. It’s even more amazing to feast on the next day as that is what I enjoyed for dinner the following night!


If you are in AC a visit to White House Sub Shop is a must. The place itself is nothing fancy. Just an old beat up down and dirty legend. A few tables to sit at and lots of sub options to choose from. Those that poo-poo on this type of place and food should not eat here or review it. Ever. Because they just don’t know what they are missing. This is history, the way our grandparents remember it.

This is an epic submarine sandwich. Period!

  1. I love reading about all of your food adventures. I just ate, but looking at that sub is making me drool. I am such a fat kid. 🙂

    1. Hey Guy!

      Totally worth it, and not really pricey at all considering the part of the country it’s in (NYC area).

      Subway is bad fast food compared to this – and I also like them!

  2. The down and dirty legends are the best. You should see what our first stop looks like when we get to Louisiana to eat a Shrimp Po’ Boy. I actually know of a hole in the wall that moved and tried to get fancy. It wasn’t the same.

  3. Another great post, Phil, made that much more compelling because it’s 4:00 and I haven’t eaten anything since 8 this morning. I can’t get over the 80% fat free claim. Do you think they meant 80% free range fat?

  4. Looks Great Phil, I’m sure an original lure for folks from Philly on vacation! And the Hoagie, or for those who call them subs, Tastes Fantastic down the shore, especially where the fresh rolls are fantastic!

  5. Phil, it just occurred to me that you should consider writing a book about the hot spots of NYC. I know this post isn’t about an NYC place, but it could be included into a bonus chapter. Think about it.

  6. Beautiful sandwich!

    Out here I get my subs from Jimmy John’s. For a chain, they do okay and I can have 2 sandwiches delivered in 20 mins for the price you pay for the whole sub. It’s not as good but, it’s almost as good and it’s quick.

  7. OMG that sub looks ridiculously good—but I haven’t had lunch yet so I’m just about ready to chew off my arm. Thanks for sharing–if I’m ever in Atlantic City I’ll be sure to check it out!

  8. You’re writing about Atlantic City again and this time you hit it out of the park. I spent many many many dinners and MUCHO bucks at the White House. Next time, get the White House Special. It’s to DIE for!!!! Thanks for bringing me back to AC for a few minutes.

  9. I’ll be sure to check this place out the next time I’m in Atlantic City, as I’m a sucker for a good sub! But I think a half will be plenty for me. 🙂

    1. Hey CJ!

      Its a classic spot in AC. Just a hole in the wall kind of place that has been around foprever, but so worth a visit. Yes, half a sub is huge in itself. Feast mode!

      1. I was just in AC last night, but we had a feast of a dinner at Nero’s at Caesars Palace. (The Wagyu Beef Ribeye is to die for)

        Next time my friend, next time..
