This week I went for lunch with the guys, as I wanted to try a new place I had been hearing good things about. The guys trust me when it comes to suggesting places to eat so we headed off to 7 Sinful Subs located at 4632 S. Maryland Parkway. They are open to till 6 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and closed on Sunday’s.
7 Sinful Subs is the latest creation of Chef Vic, who combines New York Italian deli with his mom’s and grandma’s recipes. He gives the sandwiches a fun twist by giving them unique names.
The two subs we went with were The Knuckle Sandwich and the Skinny Dip. How many times when you were a kid did you here “Do you want a knuckle sandwich?” Well if I had known a Knuckle Sandwich tasted this good I would have said, “Heck, yeah!” It has grilled salami, pepperoni, ham, lettuce, tomato, mayo, Champagne vinaigrette dressing, and is topped with melted Mozzarella all on a fresh toasted roll. This sandwich was the real deal and was my favorite of the two I tried that day.
The second sandwich I tried was the Skinny Dip – a combination of a Philly cheese steak and a French dip sandwich. The Skinny Dip came with grilled shaved sirloin, sautéed onions, red roasted peppers and mayo. It’s then folded together with American cheese and topped with melted Mozzarella on a fresh toasted roll. They serve it with a side of au jus. Outstanding as well but I gave the slight nod to the Knuckle Sandwich.
My buddy took a sandwich home to his wife. He got her the Club to the Head, which comes with sliced turkey, bacon, Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and mayo on a fresh toasted roll. He reported to me later that she loved her sandwich as well.
You know, I always say the bread can make or break a sandwich. The rolls 7 Sinful Subs uses absolutely make these subs taste even better.
Another of their sandwiches is the Italian Chick-en Vegas, which is a hand-breaded chicken cutlet with house made marinara and smothered with melted Mozzarella. This is the next sandwich on my list to try. They also have a Baller Sub, which is handmade meatballs, house made marinara all smothered with melted Mozzarella. All of the subs are huge and priced from $8.49 to $9.99. Each comes with chips or for a $1 upgrade you can get a Bag O Coins, round coin shaped French fries. I highly recommend the $1 upgrade.
The next visit I’ll try their signature dessert – Black Chip Cannoli. It’s a chocolate cannoli shell filled with cannoli cream and the ends dipped in dark chocolate chips. The subs are fantastic and the portions huge for the price. I give 7 Sinful Subs a rating of 3.75 forks.
