Back in Iowa we would maybe have called it a Hoagie growing up, although now everywhere just calls them Subs.


I've heard of Po Boy in NOLA, heard the term Hero somewhere, and in Chicago I've heard the term Grinder. Never heard of any of the others.

Please offer your city, state, and what word you would use to name the type of sandwich pictured above.
I call them two red 'x's! Seems like your links are broken.

Sub. I've heard my fair share of people calling them Subways (regardless of whether a sub is from Subway) because they don't get them anywhere else, but I don't think that's tied to a specific region.

Just a sub sandwich. Like Subway... Never heard it called a "subway". Occasionally hear it called a hoagie. Grinder, hero, and po boy are all cutesy names used in fancy delis.
