I noticed that in Harrisburg Area restaurants, you're far more likely to see "subs" on the menu than hoagies. Does anyone know why that is? Pretty much everwhere else I've been in the state is solid hoagie territory, except for the Norristown area, where they coexist peacefully alongside zeps.

I was at a restaurant in State College recently (at least I think that's where it was) and they defined the difference as subs were "cold" and hoagies were "warm" or "toasted".

Maybe someone forgot to pay the power bill in Harrisburg?? LOL

That's interesting, similar to the way long sandwiches are de facto hoagies in Philly but as soon as you put them under the broiler, they become grinders, which is the de facto New England term for long sandwiches.

I didn't know it was hoagies in Philly. When I was in Harrisburg, I always assumed subs and hoagies were an east/west thing like soda and pop.

Pittsburgh is a pop/hoagie town. Harrisburgers seem to have soda with their subs.
