    Subway is based out of Milford, CT.

    I've experienced that "Subway is the best restaurant in town" thing. Reminds me of a line from a movie - "I bet the Chinese food here is terrible."

    Where I lived in Suffolk County, Long Island, NY, it's a hero. In Hanover NH it's a grinder. In Washington State and California it's a sub or subway sandwich.

    Also in NH they call the roll a "bulky roll". In my opinion nothing beats a good Italian NY deli for super fast, delicious food served with no fussing around. You order promptly, no hemming and hawing allowed (remember the Soup ****? In NY it's a thing), and the two guys behind the counter have it made, wrapped, bagged, and rung up incredibly fast. Part of it was back in the day people would make a career out of being a deli clerk so they got really good at their craft. In contrast, I think the slowest plain old coffee I've ever been served in my life was North Shore Oahu in Haleiwa.

    Naw, try a ham sandwich with some cheese and a little butter. Tastes like ... freedom! Oh, and a cornichon on the side.

    I've been going to my local deli for over 20 years and it's the same people behind the counter.

    I only know of one Subway where I live, and a ton of McDonalds. And I've been to several European cities; all have more McDonalds.

    Top is a Hoagie. The term is from the Philly workers lunch on Hog Island. If you ask for an Italian Hoagie in South Philly. The response will be. So what do you want in it.

    Where I grew up (NYC and Long Island) it's a hero. So that's what I call it.

    Up here it's a sub. The Hero is a variety of sub at Captain Sub chain restaurants.

    Depends on whether you cut them in squares or triangles.
