So needless to say when me and dan had a mandatory errand in Jacksonville, Angie's Subs was my only choice for lunch. And let me tell you, after six months of withdrawals, I was not disappointed!
Luckily, D and I stopped in on a pretty tame Tuesday afternoon and didn't have to wait long for our little slices of heaven. It's not unheard of to wait an hour at Angie's for your food. It's not even uncommon.
We pulled up to what one might suspect to be a convenient store, but in all actuality happens to be one of Jacksonville Beach's most popular local sandwich shop.
Even more intriguing than the exterior, the interior of Angie's will keep your eyes wondering for many visits. Mismatched chairs and tables create the dining room furniture and random signs and pictures decorate the walls. Looking for a missing sock? It might be on the wall. Don't forget to check out the surfboards on the ceiling and just wait till you visit the bathroom!
I kept it traditional and went with my regular order of 7" Peruvian ($4.99). As Angie's signature sub, it is by far the most popular. Ham, Genoa salami, bacon, Italian sausage, provolone and peruvian sauce all lie in between a hoagie roll and bake to perfection in a 550 degree pizza oven.
I had my peruvian all the way minus tomatoes and onions, which includes lettuce and Angie's special Italian salad oil mix. It's simply the best sub ever. The peruvian sauce gives it a great mixture of perfectly spicy sweet and all the meat just melts in your mouth along with the provolone cheese. The bread is just a little crunchy, but taste great dipped in the additional Peruvian Sauce located on every table.
D chose this particular visit to give the 7" Dirty Gringo ($4.99) a try.
On a hoagie roll as well, The Dirty Gringo contains roast beef, turkey, mushrooms, bacon, provolone and peruvian sauce. D ordered his fully involved with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and the house special italian oil mix. D had never had the same feelings towards Angie's as me, but he enjoyed his sub enough to scarf it down.
All in all, our Angie's visit was everything I expected without the long wait. The familiar looking convenient store turned sub shop was hard to leave when the time came, but I grabbed my extra large styrofoam cup and dumped it in the suggestion box, otherwise known as a trash can, and bid ado until next time.
