for this particular style of sandwich, shredded is appropriate. i agree though that leaf lettuce is most appropriate in just about every other application. just was i would agree that a big soft hogie roll, like the above, is generally crappy...but not in this application.
That's funny - I can't stand the shredded lettuce thing. It often makes me not get a sandwich if they don't have leaves of lettuce.

we went to Skuffy's in beautiful hawthorne today. mrs. tommy had remembered that this place was really good...about 20 yrs ago.
well it has in fact held up. the subs are just as good as they were 20 yrs ago. and the decor and video games remain the same as well.
the only complaint with these sandwiches is the bread. ours was too well done, and on one of the sandwiches, too much. the whole bread-to-fillings ratio was a bit off, and enough to put a big damper on this otherwise decent sandwich.
shredded lettuce, which they use, is key. good for them. the sandwich is also bigger than sub base and some others.
84 Goffle Rd
what kind of oil / dressing did they use?

not iceburb, which is, of course, the king of the crunchy lettuces.
I just don't like the texture of shredded lettuce, ever.. It loses it's major crunch appeal for me.
paul, the dressing was o and red v. i'm assuming nothing special for either, but that's usually the case, and quite acceptable, for this type of sandwich imho.

you're wrong. get out of my thread.
Even iceburg is crunchier in leaf form than in shredded form. I don't like shredded lettuce. I just don't like it. I don't like it. I don't like the shredded pieces. I like to take a bit outta my lettuce leaf. I like it flat, in leaves. That's just how it is. It ain't a better or worse thing.

Dante's: A quality Italian but you pay the price--
Kinderkamack Rd --- East side north of the Vorhis Ave light
Joe's Boun Apetito: Another quality Italian with amazing homemade sausage and fresh mozz
Kinderkamack Rd in the strip mall south of the diner
Ted's North and Teds: A pair of sub shops located by the continental ave entrance to Van Saun Park, and the local exit to Garden State Plaza respectively. Tasty sandwiches, the Sloppy Ted kick's butt. Get the seasoned fries at Ted's North (formerly Komsa's Farms for old timers), I usually get them a little well done with extra seasoning
Cosmo's Salumaria: Yet another quality Italian, and my favorite. The bread, the meat, the dressing, and a big bottle of Manhattan Special, ummmmooooooohhh!!!!
Main Street in Hackensack by the Johnson ave Intersection, Across from the First Union Bank and a few doors north of the Lido <----Great thin crust pizza and sliced steak sandwiches!!

Truly you do, the only reason I still go to Dante's is that it is almost as good and only a 2 minute walk from my store
my friends swear by cosmo's in hackensack. they tell me it's as good as vito's in hoboken (my favorite italian deli). i need to try cosmo's.

I had the roastbeef sub with lettuce, tomato, and roasted red pepper--a little salt and pepper, and a generous portion of mustard. OUTSTANDING.
Another fine combo was turkey breast and genoa salami. Cosmo gets the ratio perfect.
From the fresh Italian bread, to the top quality cold cuts, Cosmo gets the job done. And at $5.50 for a sandwich, you're not going to find better value anywhere.
