Yes, the whole cheese shop aspect makes them a little swankier than traditional sub shops, but this newcomer makes the list because, fancy cheese or no fancy cheese, Irving Subs makes a damn good sandwich. Good bread, quality meat, all perfectly dressed (the house-made vinaigrette and garlicky mayo are both a must). And FINE: the cheese is really good, too. They’re not open on Sunday, but they claim that’s in the works.
This list -- and all the rest -- look even sexier in our iPhone app. Get it now!
