Hands-down my favorite sub shop. The subs are unbeatable. Packed full and extremely tasty. If you're in Rome you have to visit Big Daddy's!

Daddy's has excellent "make your choice" sub sandwiches which can be enhanced by soup, homemade potato or macaroni salad, and chips. Beverages include soda, lemonade, coffee, tea, bottled water, milk. Desserts are available. Everything is fresh. There is inside seating or take-out.

This my absolute favorite sub shop! The subs at Big Daddy's are always fresh, and filled just enough to satisfy your appetite. The BLT, minus the T, has been my long-standing favorite for years. The shop does get busy at lunch time. They do have...More
