I hadn't been to Premo's in a while, even though it's the closed sub shop not named Subway to where I live. I was running errands today and didn't have time for lunch, so I stopped in to pick up an italian sub.
They were just starting to put stuff away, but they said they could make me a sandwich. I went for the large size this time; the small size is 6" and the large is 9". The large is enough for a lunch and a snack for me.
The last time I was here I remember thinking that the guy who made my sub was pretty smooth, but this time it seemed like it was assembled quite randomly. One thing I noticed was that they didn't have good tomatoes. They'd cut the bad parts out but they didn't look ripe.

They use Boar's Head cold cuts and the sandwich was a good size. It wasn't as good as the last one I got here; I'm not sure why. But it's as good as any other place in this area. I'd certainly recommend it.
I’ve passed Premo’s 100s of time and never really considered going in. Why? I guess it just made me think of Premio Sausages. I thought it was a chain. Its really small. It just didn’t seem important. But a friend of mine tried it out the other day and recommended that I try it.
They have 2 sizes, the Premo which is 6 inches and the Big, which is 9 inches. I was in the mood for 6 rather than 4.5 (I’d only eat half of the 9) so I ordered an Italian Premo with the works.
Premos Small Italian Sub (2010)
Now I’m not really a big sub guy and If given the choice between a sub and a bowl of pasta I’m taking the pasta every time, but this sub was simply outstanding. Overstuffed and bursting with flavor, good Boar’s Head meat and cheese and nice, soft bread. I don’t give subs 5 stars, but this was pretty close. And for $5.75 it’s a great value as well.
