Subs and Clubs

2338 N. Farwell Ave.

Erbert and Gerbert’s quirkily named store and sandwiches are based on characters co-founder Kevin Schipper’s father used to tell him as a child. “Boney Billy,” a tender turkey breast sub, the “Tullius,” packed with medium-rare roast beef, and the vegetarian “Jacob Bluefinger” are just some of the generously-filled subs you’ll find here.

135 W. Wisconsin Ave.

Potbelly’s is the perfect antidote to the growing epidemic of generic subs that are all bread and no love. With great renditions of the classics and a few originals, not to mention a signature hot pepper mixture that’s strangely addictive, Potbelly delivers bang for your (around) $5 bucks, in a pleasantly homey setting.

10853 W. Bluemound Road

Suburpia introduced the submarine sandwich to most Milwaukeeans in the early ’70s—a time when their menu was a good cure for the munchies and their clever radio ads were sung by the still-unknown John Belushi. Suburpia still offers the Davey Jones (tuna), Reuben James (cornbeef), Gold Coast (ham) and Miles Standish (turkey). Served on a sub-shaped bun loaded with cheese, mayo and chopped salad in a tangy dressing, the subs are so heavy laded that the filling tends to slide out of the buns. (D.L.) $. CC: MC, VS. 456-1100


Would white supremacists, neo-Nazis and the Ku Klux Klan pose the same threat they do now if a mainstream Republican were president instead of Donald Trump?
