Building on a tradition that started down the Jersey Shore in 1956, Jersey Mike’s knows that fresh, quality ingredients make good subs that have sandwich lovers coming back for more.
The restaurant opened in the shopping center with Goodyear off Robert Smalls Parkway in 2008. Earlier this year, Matthew Bohnsack took over as owner. He said they were proud to take part in the nationwide “Mike’s Way to a Cure” during the month of October when all the stores raised more than $1 million for the Susan G. Komen foundation and breast cancer awareness.
Elizabeth and our guest Lunch Buncher, Gene Brancho, both had the Original Italian sub made with Provolone, ham prosciutti, cappacuolo, salami and pepperoni.
Kim and Tess went light on the carbs by ordering wraps. Kim had the Chicken Caesar wrap, while Tess had the Grilled Veggie with grilled peppers and onions, melted Swiss and Provolone cheese, lettuce, tomato and ranch dressing.
Buck had the Big Kahuna Cheese Steak: a giant warm sub with grilled onions and peppers plus mushrooms, jalapeños and extra melted cheese. He described it as “steamy and delicious.”
April tried the #9 Club Supreme with roast beef, turkey, Swiss, bacon and mayo made Mike’s Way.
I ordered my usual, the #6: the Famous Roast Beef and Provolone, with mayo, made Mike’s Way.
Be sure to ask for your sub made “Mike’s Way” with shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onion, oil and vinegar and spices.
An interesting side note: The entire Lunch Bunch chose the same flavor of Miss Vickie’s chips — salt and vinegar. Goes to show how good they are!
As a girl who grew up in New Jersey, I can attest to the authenticity of the subs, worthy of any of the Italian delis that can be found in almost every town throughout the Garden State.
Jersey Mike’s Subs is located at The Crossings of Beaufort, 272 Robert Smalls Parkway. For more information, call 843-379-8820 or visit their website at www.jerseymikes.com.
