Welcome to What Sub Deli, where the title, at least, has the makings of an Abbott and Costello routine.
Ahem, if you’ll indulge me:
No, I asked you what you had for lunch.
And I told you already, What Sub.
Not much. Like I just said. Now what did you eat for lunch?
And on it goes ...
In actuality, What Sub Deli is a pretty nifty sandwich shop near WalMart in Moncks Corner.
The deli offers coffee as well as croissants, bagels, omelets, French toast and pancakes for breakfast. Lunch and supper options include sandwiches, spuds, salads and soup.
Naturally, the subs demand prioritization on the menu, the choices varying from Philly cheesesteaks, turkey clubs, Buffalo chicken, chicken teriyaki, and ham and Swiss.
These are all liberally portioned, sized at 6- and 12-inches, as is the case with the Philly cheesesteak deluxe (6-inch, $7.47; 12-inch, $9.89, all prices list tax included).
Here, the deluxe is crafted with white American cheese, which is slotted beneath shaved sirloin, onions, peppers, mushrooms and a sprinkling of bacon pieces. It’s a top-notch spread, the trimmings cradled by a soft hoagie roll.
Signature provisions like the reuben sandwich ($8.24) are served double-decker style, the rye bread surrounding twice the corned beef and sauerkraut.
The spuds ($3.29-$5.78) are a nice addition, too, some served with the trappings of a Philly sandwich or chicken fajitas.
Consider the fries as a side. These are crunchy, seasoned wedges ($3.29-$4.39), which come plain, with cheese, with bacon and cheddar, and with bacon and Ranch dressing.
No joke, these folks know their potatoes, which amounts to another What Sub welcoming.
