While Amoroso rolls are great, people like to over-hyped it as if they are the only good rolls to find in the Delaware Valley.

How does Olive Garden survive in Times Square?
Largely because those food establishments are more catered towards tourists. Most New York locals don't eat there.

I have no idea how they survive in the Philly area.
Comparing Subway sandwiches to Philadelphia hoagies is like comparing Taco Bell to authentic Mexican cuisine.

I think Wawa hoagie's are ok....I was hooked on the meatball express for years until I looked up the sodium and fat content.....That scared me straight and now only eat them once every few months!

First thing I do when I go back to South Jersey is get a Wawa hoagie and ice tea.

This week was Wawa's 50th birthday btw.

One thing I do like about Subway: their flatbread breakfast sandwiches.

I like their Hearty Italian Bread

That of course is all personal opinion. Sounds to me from your OP, that your basing your opinion on the roll alone. Myself I always get the roll toasted at Wawa to prevent them from falling apart as I like an extra amount of oil. When I eat a Subway hoagie I am always left hungry as they skimp on the meat. They use about as much meat as a grocery store pre-made hoagie.

Blech. I don't like Subway hoagies at all! Not the rolls, not the filling. Someone gave me a gift card to Subway, and I only used it once. Now that they have the flatbreads I'll go back.

Wawa hoagies are denser -- better roll and more filling. And they're very consistently made no matter which store you go to.

We have to remember that the sandwiches in Subway are not hoagies

Subway is all bread though. And saying Subway is better than Wawa is basically heresy in these parts.
