“Don't eat for a week” before attacking the “two-handed” “Dagwood” sandwiches at these “lip-smacking” Italian sub shops; the '20s-era Red Hook original “used to feed the longshoremen” and still exudes a whiff of “old-fashioned Brooklyn” , while its Staten Island outpost continues the tradition.

Great deli. The egg sandwiches are unbeatable. First time going there for a lunch sandwich...Golden Boy. Delicious, just as expected. Red Hook is worth stopping by. There are a bunch of cool little spots to hit up. Spend the day and start here with breakfast. Cash only.

These guys are the king of sandwiches and of Italian food. My breakfast preferred is the potato and eggs on a seeded roll boom you probably won't have to eat anything probably for another 4 hours cuz they really pile it on. Good value for what you spend .I've been following them since they were in Manhattan by the police academy on 20th Street. If you haven't been here you haven't been in New York. The workers really know what it is to have customer service. In addition when you go in it's like a museum of Brooklyn past.

Wonderful, old school sandwich shop with an outstanding product. Seriously, order absolutely ANYTHING on the menu. You will not be disappointed. So worth the wait in line!
