"Mouthwatering" Italian submarine sandwiches surface at these counter-serve shops,
causing incredible lines out the door at lunch hours or before games; hero-worshipers
hail the Philly-type sandwiches dressed with "sweet and spicy peppers" as "the best
damn hoagies in town" -no matter what you call them, they torpedo the competition.

"Best Sub Shop", City Link 2003
We walked into the Laspadaís on University Drive in Davie one Saturday and found it
as we usually find it at high noon: A line snaked along the main counter, around the
back wall and out toward the front door. But more notable than the line ó and how
quickly it moved ó was the game of catch played by two of the five guys working the
submaking assembly line that day. A guy on one end had just sliced a short slab of
cold cuts, and instead of handing them off to the guy next to him to be topped with
fresh vegetables, he tossed the patty across an eight-foot counter to a guy who caught
it in a hoagie roll. Now thatís confidence, and itís not something youíre likely to
see at the competing franchises. While the whimsies (and efficiency) of the
sandwichmakers keep the line from becoming dull, the tasty subs keep people coming

"Best Sub Shop", City Link 2002
It's usually impolite to brag, but there's a difference between bragging and telling it
like it is. LaSpada's claims to have the "best damn hoagies in town", and you won't get
an argument from us or the regulars that pack the three shops.

Q: Where do you go on a night off?
A: LaSpada's Original Hoagies, Lauderdale-by-the-Sea. It's a sandwich shop. It's
been there since 1973. They have four or five guys working in there and no matter
what time I go, there's always a line. You just yell out what you want... It's great
to see just a regular restaurant that still does things the way they're supposed to be
done. It's really quality.
A hungry crowd fills the Davie store.
Small Roast Beef, Ham, and Turkey Breast Combo- Mmmm, Look at those hot peppers!
