Someone told me yesterday, “Let me introduce you to an amazing sub shop.” Even though I don’t remember who that person was, Super Subs Etc. is one of the all-time best recommendations I’ve ever received.
More than 20 years later, I still believe Super Subs Etc on Bird Road is the best sub shop in Miami. I have never had a bad experience here; everyone is super friendly.
Unfortunately, Marcela isn’t much of a hot subs person. Usually, I’m going solo or bringing back a couple of subs for my parents.
My mother is a fan of Italian Subs, so guess what she had. She loved it, and I wasn’t surprised. My dad had the cheesesteak, which always seems to have a smokey, meaty flavor.
Pop’s cheesesteak is pretty damn near perfect. But, again, I said this is a cheesesteak, not a Philly Cheesesteak, before any of you purists start shouting from the rooftops!
Cheeseburger Sub Talk
I tend to alternate between ordering a cheesesteak or cheeseburger sub. The standard cheeseburger sub comes with American cheese and the toppings of your choice. The grilled onions and semi-crispy bacon are my usual suspects.
Yes, I know, the burger is of the boxed frozen variety, but somehow it works. Although, of course, I did grow up eating those at home, so maybe there is a tiny bit of nostalgia tied to it too.
It has the same underlying smokey flavor as the cheesesteak, and it’s just plain addictive. Lastly, I like to add the fast-food sauce trinity of ketchup, mustard & mayo.
Occasionally, I order a little lighter fare like the grilled chicken & onions sub. There are about 100 different subs at Super Subs Etc. So I skip out on the fries on those days.
Speaking of their french fries (seasoned fries are also available), make sure you ask for the nacho cheese dipping sauce and ensure it’s hot.
I can’t heap enough praise on Super Subs Etc. In the sub-category in Miami, they are tops. There are also Hungry Bear Sub Shops (Doral & Kendall), but they are sister restaurants. They are brother and sister-owned, believe it or not.
