I always like to “Eat Fresh” at Subway and it’s usually a nice substitute to a greasy burger. But sometimes their subs get a little boring and bland and it would be nice to be able to spice things up a little bit. Enter the Subway secret menu. Little-known subs and sandwiches that’ll spark your imagination, not to mention your taste buds. Here’s what we know so far, and I hope to add new Subway secret menu items to my list as I discover them.
1. Subway “Old Cut”
Back in the day, Subway artists would slice their bread a little differently than they do now. Instead of slicing the bread in half, they would cut a v-shaped trench on the top. The result? A sub that was easier to load with meat and veggies and kept them from falling off.
Also, I know for a fact the old cut would hold more veggies than they do now and it would result in a bigger meal for those with a BIG appetite. Order the v-cut and test out my theory for yourself.
Update: According to someone who left a comment, who use to work at Subway, they called this the “u-gouge” and she said it doesn’t hold nearly as much stuff.
2. The Wing Effect
Order your sub with “Wing Effect” and the artist will leave your meat of choice hanging over the side of the bread. This is done by not folding the meat onto itself, but instead laying it flat on the bread.
It allows you to nibble on the meat before taking a big bite out of your sub. Hey, whatever floats your boat, I ain’t judging.
3. The Pizza Sub
The Pizza sub is a long time favorite on the Subway secret menu.
Order it and you’ll get a sub with red tomato sauce, pepperoni, cheese, and your choice of bread. Don’t forget to get it toasted, add some parmesan, and you’ll end up with a delicious pizza on a sandwich.
4. Chicken Cordon Bleu Sub
Order this and you’ll get a yummy concoction with your choice of bread along with chicken breast, ham and cheese.
Make sure you get it toasted for the full cordon bleu experience.
5. The Footlong B.M.T.
According to this Reddit thread, you can order a secret sub that’ll feed an army.
Here’s how the conversation with the sandwich artist went down:
Truck Driver: “Son, are you ready to make the biggest baddest sub of your life?”
Subway Employee: “I make big subs all the time.” (Laughing deeply)
Truck Driver: “Oh boy, you’ll never see this again.”
Subway Employee: “Try me.”
Truck Driver: “Give me a footlong B.M.T. (Biggier. Meatier. Tastier. If you ever wondered). I want 8 double meats, 8 double cheese, 9 layers of bacon, more bread and every vegetable. Two forks.”
Subway Employee: “So you want more bread added in between levels of meat?”
Truck Driver: “Yes. If it looks like it needs bread, add more.”
Total cost for this bad buy, $86. And apparently it was so big, it didn’t come close to fitting in the bag. I would’ve enjoyed watching this guy try to eat it, must have been a sight.
6. Deconstructed Breakfast Taco
This beauty sounds delicious and will take your breakfast to the next level. Order it off the Subway secret menu and you’ll get flatbread loaded with egg whites, steak, guacamole, spinach, red onions, sliced tomatoes and topped with yummy Chipotle sauce.
I’m all over this one like “white on rice” the next I stop at Subway for breakfast.
7. Eggs Florentine Flatbread
This can be ordered any time of day and is loaded with protein. It’s made on soft flatbread and comes with egg whites, red onion, banana pepper, spinach, black olives and topped with a tangy Italian dressing. This sandwich makes for a nice alternative to the boring subs found on their regular menu.
8. Chicken Parmesan Sub
Back in 2010, Subway took this beauty of their regular menu, but never fear, most employees still know how to make it and it’s been secret menu fixture for years.
If they don’t know how, just ask for a sub with roasted chicken, marinara sauce, and Parmesan cheese. I recommend getting it toasted so you get all of the gooey goodness of the melted cheese and toasty bread.
9. Big Philly Cheesesteak
This Subway secret menu item is a favorite among many Subway loyalists. Order it as a footlong and you’ll get a sub with 3 big scoops of steak and twice the cheese as normal.
Don’t forget to get it toasted with onions and peppers to make it a true Philly sub.
10. “The Feast” Sub
This bad boy is made with ham, turkey, roast beef, salami and pepperoni piled high. Cost? Apparently a foot long comes in at about $13. Maybe split one with a friend unless you have a HUGE appetite.
Great FRUGAL tip from Jen, “To make The Feast a cheaper sub, ask for a club (roast beef, turkey, ham), then ask to double the meat using the ingredients for a spicy Italian (salami and pepperoni). Then you get all of the meats without having to pay individually.”
Brilliant Jen, absolutely brilliant.
11. The Meat Lover
Also known as “The Carnivore” by many sub enthusiasts, this Subway secret menu sandwich piles on the meat. What meat you ask? How about 4 scoops of steak, 6 slices of bacon, and a handful of pepperoni. Throw on all your favorite fixings and you have a sub made for a hungry lumberjack.
12. The Sunrise Melt
This sounds like a REALLY yummy breakfast treat.
It’s a toasted sandwich that comes with egg, turkey, ham, bacon and your choice of cheese.
13. Chicken Pizziola
This one is buried deep on the secret menu I’m guessing.
If the sandwich artist doesn’t know it by name, it’s roasted chicken breast, ham, and mozzarella cheese, TOASTED. Gotta get it toasted, very important.
14. Breakfast BMT
Get the footlong version and get 2 eggs, 6 slices of pepperoni, 6 slices of salami, and 6 slices of ham.
According to “Subway Guy” in the comments section, it’s da bomb.
15. The Albuquerque Turkey
Also from the “Subway Guy”, the Albuquerque Turkey is made with turkey, add bacon, add green chili, toast it, then add avocado.
OK, I’m not gonna lie, that sounds REALLY good and love the tex-mex feel of it.
16. Chicken Bacon BBQ Flatizza
This yummy concoction (that helps me hang on) is flatbread pizza made with BBQ sauce instead of marinara sauce, chopped chicken strips, bacon, onions and bell peppers then topped with mozzarella cheese.
Ask the Reader: Which one of these Subway secret menu items sparked your interest? Do you have any “secret” subs I should add to my list? Let me know in the comments. Thanks.
