Today, just as they were back in the early eighties, are still making a generous sub with the freshest ingredients. SUB WAY , PUDGIES, and Blimpies can all come and go but we hope SOUTHSIDE SUB SHOP will always stay and never change!!!

They have been here as long as I can remember. No the bread is not made daily on site like some places, but it is their bread. When you bite into it you KNOW you are eating a southside sub shop sub. It’s distinct and has this awesome chewy quality that you just know where you got your sub from.... More

There is a subway restaurant where I work, and, because of that, I forget what a really good sub tastes like. Nothing against subway, but they taste like the chain restaurant they are. Now this simple, no frills sub shop has excellent quality, low prices and great service. Condiments are simple, the bread is fresh and oil can be kept... More

Subs here are made with fresh bread and fresh ingredients, worth the trip to either location- Southside or Elmira Heights. Shop is small but that doesn't hinder good subs or good service- definitely a favorite meal of our family.

Love their subs, and their prices are the lowest in town. A half sub is like 12 inches, and usually around $3 or $4.

Brett and Claire have a consistantly great product, great service and yes I think the roll is their secret ingredient. I lived in Virginia for years and always stopped here when I came home. Best subs anywhere.
