I was really craving a roast beef sub today. Strolled down to Long John's, asked for a Roast Beef sub, and was told...."No.". Winds up they were out of roast beef today, but would be getting more tomorrow. I'm not sure what to think of this. Wound up getting a bologna sub, and it was pretty darn good. But I... More

As a kid growing up in Morristown, the first dollar we earned went to buy a sub here. Of course this was the 70's. I was back visiting Morristown recently and the shop still smelled the same as I remember as a kids and the subs are just as good as I recall. Not much ambience but subs are still... More

While it's true the place is nothing to look at, the subs make up for it! The staff is friendly (VERY talkative) and helpful. I've been eating here for years and hope to for years to come. Keep up the awesome work!

Love their subs! I mean, the consistency and the flavor are just GREAT! Its a really small place, and the service can sometimes b slow, but the subs are very good!

So, if appeared cleanliness is a concern, go elsewhere. I'm not saying they are not clean( or not) but the place was old and a bit run down. The restroom were flat out gross. The sub was ok, but not anything extra-ordinary. We were in a pinch and needed food so it worked. If we had any more time we... More

I remember Long John’s being better and friendlier after I got out of the Navy in the early 70’s. The “Long John” sub I had today was a lot of bread with less filler (meats and cheese) than I remembered. The place hasn’t changed in appearance, just older.

Our favorite sub shop in Morristown. Subs 10; location & atmosphere 1. Fresh ingredients, the best roll, made to your specifications. Located underneath the elevated tracks at Morristown train station at Elm & Morris; true diner-style red-laminate tables; tea & soft drinks from the cooler case. True small town urban vibe.

I've been going to Long John's since they opened in the late 60's. It was located down the hill from my grade school and kids could sneak out at lunchtime. Ah, the good old days of an open campus. Long John's ain't pretty. Don't expect ambiance, decor or charm. Some might call the decor "gritty." It's just real. The food... More

Same as its always been. Big filling delicious Jersey subs on fresh bread and all the traditional toppings. No gourmet sandwiches or panini bread here. No roasted tomatoes. Just good old salami, bologna, turkey breast and roast beef with provalone and American cheese, maybe some swiss. No ambience. There are a few hard booths, but this is really a take... More
