I'm from South Jersey and it's a sub or a hoagie depending on my mood, who I'm with, and where I'm getting it. Usually I say sub, but I grew up with both. Other than sandwich, it cannot go by any other name as far as I'm concerned.

I call them subs. So do local restaurant menus. Occasionally use hoagie, I think my school lunch menu called them that, and to a lesser extent hero. I'm from VA, Staunton, Culpeper, and Charlottesville are my three homes here.

A sandwich. If i had to choose from the list, i would call it a sub.

I've seen restaurants/delis calling them by many names though, including sub, hero, hoagie, grinder and po boy. You'll see some places with sandwiches on a menu called "subs" another on there called a "hoagie", etc. People here usually just say "sandwich" though when referring to stuff between two slices of bread.

I've always called it a sub. Has nothing to do with Subway. We called them sub's long before Subway was around. I have occcasionally heard them called a hoagie or a hero. Never heard the others. Grinder is just nasty sounding. Just not an appealing name.

That is not a Po'boy. As previously mentioned that is something else. On a chewy baguette. For me, I usually associated them with some type of seafood. It's a NOLA/gulf coast thing.
