True, Sub Stop's central location is socko, and the roomy booths and low-key vibe make it a cozy place to settle in with a newspaper. And they do make a good sandwich, even plain kid-sandwiches like turkey and provolone with nothing else — not even mayonnaise. Especially not mayonnaise. The power of the pink exterior makes everything taste better, so it doesn't need mayonnaise, you see.
You dictate your order, and instead of punching it into a computer, the counter helper writes it in code on a takeout bag. (Click on the image for a bigger version.) Our sandwiches were ready before we even made it to the pickup counter. Besides the turkey and provolone — did I mention, no mayo? — the other, if I could decode the secret language of the deli, would probably say, "Reuben."
