I found this wonderful little shop at their old location and was just thrilled to see they moved closer to me. I didn't get the chance to eat there much before but now go every week if not more. This time, the chicken salad was even better as I remembered! I am working my way through the menu and haven't... More

The Cuban sandwiches are excellent, and the spicy Minorcan pork is great. Lots of flavors, tender and delicious. The owners are very friendly and courteous, and make you welcome every time you go into the store. Ancient City Subs is well worth the trip from any where in the Jax area.

I was one of thier first customers when they opened up (lived across the street). Havent been there in a while, but the owners used to work behind the counter and they were very personable. I think they said they used to manage a quiznos. The subs are good, and borderline great, but not amazing. They do, however, beat out... More

My family and I were driving through Jacksonville on the way back from vacation and stopped at Ancient City based upon the positive TA reviews. It is tucked away in a strip mall, but wasn't hard to find with a GPS. The sandwiches were all very good and everyone in our group of 5 were happy with what they had.... More

Freindly, smaller sandwich shop. No decor to or atmosphere speak of, but it's a sandwich shop after all. The selling point at this place is the high quality product and inventive sandwiches. Here even the ordinadry items everybody sells will have a twist to spark it up. Give it a try. It's even worth a trip out to Mandarin if... More

We have been coming to this great shop regularly since the fall of 2010. None of their sandwiches are standard fare. The Whole Cuban is a monster and the best of many I have enjoyed in the past few decades.The Spicy Minorcan Porl and Datil Pepper Chicken make good use of the datil pepper's rich flavor. They also have croissants,... More

I went in, unsuspecting of anything. Then I got a sample of their amazing chicken salad, a taste of an out of this world three bean salad, and the best Cuban style sandwich I've ever tried. I'm so glad I went there now, and plan on taking in bunches of hungry friends, looking for something different and delicious.
