I was fortunate to be on Wedington Drive around lunch time last week and was certainly torn between choosing one of my favorites Hunan Manor or something completely different with the Green Submarine. Always on the lookout for another great place we chose the GS. I had already been told that this was no ordinary sub shop and upon entering was immediately overwhelmed by the sandwich choices. The menu includes a number of hot and cold sub options with soups and salads as well.

Subs are available in small ($5.99) and large ($9.99) sizes and include any number of toppings that could include pesto, red onions, caramelized onions, fresh mozzarella, chipotle pesto, balsamic reduction, and to many more to mention here. By this list alone you will notice that GS is no Subway or Jimmy John’s (of course you’re not going to get a $5 foot long here either). It was a tough decision but we ended up with the mess hall meatball and turkey pesto. The meatballs were surprisingly good comparable to what you would find in a great Italian restaurant much less a sub shop. The sub was topped with caramelized onions, mushrooms, peppers and then doused with a generous helping of grated parmesan.  It was ridiculously good!

Since moving there are many more tables! This place is small, not somewhere to linger and soak up the atmosphere (there is none) and only has a handful of table’s maybe seating 12 comfortably? Your better served to study the menu online and know your order ahead of time or call ahead. The majority of their customers on this day were taking subs to go and with the limited space inside is understandable. I look forward to exploring more of the menu on my next visit and I can guarantee you there will be a next visit to the Green Submarine!
