The only thing better than a Capriotti’s cheesesteak…..
…..is one of their italian subs. OMG.
And guess what?
They’re opening a Capriotti’s right here in the land of pleasant living! In Easton!
Now, I’m not one for chains. It’s not my thing, BUT these guys started out as a Mom and Pop sub shop in Wilmington, DE. When I was a kid, we’d go to the old shop in the old italian neighborhood. I still remember what it smelled like in there. Now, they’re franchising everywhere – California…..and wikipedia tells me that their largest market is Las Vegas. But honestly, as long as they keep making those subs taste so gol-darn good I don’t care how or where they sell them. And I’m REALLY glad they’re going to be selling them right here, in Talbot County.
A couple of years ago, when I moved here from the midwest and had to eat a lot of subs to catch up after 25 years, I did a taste test of my favorite two biggies – Capriottis and Casapullas. Here’s a link to that post – http://chesapeakejournal.wordpress.com/2010/08/12/and-the-winner-of-the-kb-2010-italian-sub-contest-is/
…and yet another one about italian subs – http://chesapeakejournal.wordpress.com/2010/08/10/real-italian-subs/
PS – when you go, make sure you get the hot peppers on that italian…..mmmmmm!
Come to think of it, what with all this braggin’ I’ve been doing about their subs…….they oughta buy me lunch.
