UPDATED 30 December 2023: Easily the best sandwich shop in Durham! Meat and cheese is cut fresh for each sandwich. Subs are big, great value for your money. Staff is super friendly and helpful. I enjoy the conversation each time I go in. As I said before, you won't be disappointed! ---------------------------- UPDATED 02 September 2023: what else is there to say? Awesome people serving awesome food! If you haven't been, do yourself a favor and stop in - you won't be disappointed! ---------------------------- UPDATED 15 October 2022: Still a great place to get a great sub! ---------------------------- Looking for an awesome sub? You need to visit American Hero Restaurant! The subs are made with care and fresh ingredients. Meats and cheeses are sliced specifically for your sub, not cut ahead of time and stored. Bread is super fresh and tasty. It wouldn't surprise me if the bread is made daily in store. I ordered the ham, salami, and cheeses sub today. It was a tough decision because everything sounded so good. Subs are a good size! I got a "regular" sub and cities only way half of it. That's good because I can't wait to have the leftovers. This is definitely a family-run business and they care for their customers. Today is the day before father's day - the staff was wishing fathers Happy Father's Day. That was a nice touch. I can't wait to go back and try more of their delicious food!!

I grew up 90 minutes on the MTA line from NYC, and the food and the ambiance made me feel 30 years younger. Docking a star on the atmosphere because the swinging chairs attached to the tables didn't extend far enough out to make room for my plush-sized belly, and because someone affiliated with the restaurant (I think, based on what I overheard of conversation) spent their entire time at their table staring at me for being transgender where they could see.

It's an awesome little deli style sandwich shop straight out of the 80s! Amazing food made right Infront of you, friendly passionate staff, and the dining area has an impressive collection of authentic arcade units, inducing TWO RARE INITIAL D RACERS! I highly recommend this store, for dine in or takeaway.

I love this place.. The family team here are so funny and fun to engage with. The best subs around.. Reminds me of a NY Bodega store.

My favorite sandwich shop in Durham. So glad they survived covid. Freshest ingredients, and when they say "giant sub", they mean it. Well over 14-inches

The owner, and workers are some of the most friendly people on this planet. They make you feel right at-home once you enter. They remember you by name and they also remember what you ordered the last time. Great place!
