Sandwich Subs in Lakewood

Alejandro Nieves Bucey, Food and Restaurants

What’s a sandwich? A sandwich is any food between 2 pieces of bread such as vegetables, cheese, or good old peanut butter and jelly. The origin of the sandwich and its name goes all the way back to 1762. As the story goes, John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, is the one who created this meal. One day he was playing cards and refused to leave the table in order to eat, so he asked for a serving of roast beef to be placed in between 2 pieces of bread so he could eat while still playing cards.

Now 260 years later sandwiches are known as a household food. In Lakewood there are several sandwich places to check out. So here is a list of some of them:
