SUB STATION II: A hot lunch spot for locals

Although there are a plethora of places in town to purchase quality sub sandwiches for lunch, Sub Station II on Lady’s Island remains a favorite spot to grab a bite on the go.

The no nonsense decor matches the efficient service because here the focus is on quick food made fresh and to your liking. They offer more than 30 varieties of hot and cold sandwiches.
With a Lunch Bunch of only three, April, Elizabeth and I spent a leisurely time munching and chatting. One thing becomes more obvious with less people: our individual food quirks.
April has been raving about the restaurant for a while because her family loves it and eats here often. She knew exactly what she wanted: the #17 which comes with roast beef, turkey and cheese. She chose the sweet wheat bread, which was moist and a must-have. April’s food quirk was actually a drink quirk, when she mixed the sweet tea and pink lemonade, but it was good!
Elizabeth ordered the #13 — salami, pepperoni, ham and provolone cheese — on rye bread. It proved to be the perfect little sandwich for her. Elizabeth’s food quirk is that she does not like shredded lettuce, especially not on her sandwiches.
I chose the #8 with salami, cappicola and provolone cheese on sweet wheat. I had them make it “all the way,” which includes lettuce, tomato, onions, salt, pepper, oregano and oil and vinegar. My sandwich was outstanding, and filling. My food quirk is that I don’t like pickles, which seem to be a standard side at most restaurants in town. No thanks!

The #8: Salami, cappicola, cheese, all the way on sweet wheat.

With great food and reasonable prices, it’s easy to see why Sub Station II is so popular. Call (843) 525-1520 to place an order for pick up.
