In this day and age it is increasingly difficult to find local submarine sandwich shops amidst the established national chains. Luckily for Wichitans, Moe’s Sub Shop offers a change of pace when one is in the mood for a classic Italian sub.
Located in a small strip mall on south Hydraulic, Moe’s has been slinging out subs to devoted regulars for years. With only a few tables, what the interior of the restaurant lacks in size it makes up for in atmosphere. An old arcade game, yellowed pennants, and assorted memorabilia give Moe’s dining area unique character.
The menu consists of several basic sub sandwiches in three different sizes, plus salads and lasagna. There are customizable options for cheeses, veggies, and condiments on all subs, including the most polarizing of all: Miracle Whip. This was our first experience at Moe’s so the friendly sandwich engineer directed us towards the Ultimate Moe, their most popular sandwich. I got it loaded with all the veggies, American cheese, mayo, vinegar, oil, ham, salami, and pepperoni. We also ordered a meatball sub and smoked turkey sub. The Ultimate Moe lived up to its billing. It was packed with plenty of veggies and meat, but the bread was what really made the difference. Moe’s prides themselves on their fresh baked bread and you could certainly taste the difference. The smoked turkey sub was fine, but you might as well just
order the Ultimate. The meatball sub was very basic, with just provolone and parmesan cheese, but that is all it needed. A quick zap microwave allowed the bread and marinara sauce to meld into an enjoyable sandwich.
Moe’s does not serve the fanciest sandwiches in town, but if you want to enjoy a no frills, old school sub sandwich this is your place.
