This is the best sub shop in the Cedar Valley. The staff are always upbeat and friendly. They aren't "sandwich artists", they're "sandwich BOSSES"! Grab a sub here- and even if the line is 15 or 20 deep, these bosses whip up those subs lightening quick and it's worth the 10 or 15 minute wait! There's a damn good reason... More

Was nice to find a sub place where they cut the meat and cheese as you order. The service was nice and quick. Prices are not to bad and dining area clean.

The subs here are packed with meats and cheeses galore. Not to wide a choice of breads but one can easily get filled up with half a sub.

We came here on a Wednesday evening around 6:30 pm for dinner. I love Sub City but typically visit the store on Kimball in Waterloo. There were two people in line ahead of us and it seemed like the two young men behind the counter were clueless and overwhelmed for the two subs they had to make. When it was... More

Fresh bread, fresh veggies, and they do not serve precut meat and cheese. They cut the meat and cheese when you order so you know it is not old! The subs are HUGE and can easily made into two meals. Convientely loacated on the Hill next to UNI. Its a must have when I'm back in Iowa.

Sub City is a local sub shop that has been in business for over 20 years. They, by far, make the best subs compared against the chains (i.e. Jimmy Johns & Subway). I think what sets it apart is the bread they use and then the quality of the meats and cheeses, which are sliced as needed for your order.... More

We were at an event on campus in Cedar Falls, and wanted a quick lunch. This was a perfect solution. Fresh bread and ingredients. They even let us call in an order to come pick up.

15 years ago I moved from Cedar falls to Des Moines and even though Des Moines has more choices when it comes to subs, none come close to Sub City. Whenever I'm back I make sure to go out of my way to have lunch at Sub City on the hill. The bread is excellent, everything is fresh , and... More

We'd worked hard helping my parents and decided to take a break. My brother recommended Sub City. Glad he did. Tired of the usual chain subs. Fine bread. Fresh cut meat and cheese. Fresh fixin's. Ambiance basic but pleasant. We were impressed enough to return.

Sub city has been around this area longer than most other sub shops in town. The meat and cheeses used on the subs is cut right in front of you after you order your sandwich. Somthing you cannot find anywhere else in this area. They put more meat and toppings on than the competion, and the meat itself always tastes... More
