Is it a hoagie or......

Is it a hoagie, submarine sandwich, hero, grinder, Po' Boy or Zepplin?

It's a hoagie to me!

I grew up in Philly so it's definitely a "hoagie". BTW, you can't get a decent one outside of the Philadelphia area IMHO - lol!

I have heard them called subs, Hoagie, Hero sandwiches, po' boy and various other names. Around here they call them subs usually, as well as po' boys. In NJ where my husband is from they are called hoagies.

We call them subs. In New Orleans, they are po'boys.

Bilby, I hadn't heard the other names either. There are Subway sandwich shops all over this area so I only knew them as subs.

I remember when Pizza Hut over here used to make submarines back in the very early '80's not any more though we just have the SubWays here now apart from some other snack bars

In the northern part of NJ where I grew up, they were known as "hero sandwiches" or "sub sandwiches."

Then I went to college in Northeast PA, and it was "hoagies." I hated that name, hated to have to use it. And what do you know--I wound up living in southern NJ, near Philly, so as Kathymac mentioned, they are "hoagies" here.

I give up. They're "hoagies." After 17 years, I know when I'm beat.

But I disagree with you, Kathymac. The best ones are in northern NJ. The bread there is MUCH better; crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside. Don't forget the EXTRA oil and vinegar. I like my hoagie/hero/sub to be drippy!

You crack me up, Barb! I really, really miss the bread from up home!! You won't find anything like that here. I'm like you...I like my hoagies to be drippy!! (that word reminds me of people at home saying slippy (slippery) )
