I went to their website on July 17th. I tried to order online but it said you had to order 2 hours in advance of when you need you food (wth?) So I tried calling and the phone rang and rang and eventually just stopped ringing. I tried calling back and the same thing after fewer rings. Seriously, their food... More

They have Pizza and other dishes, but the subs are fab because of the roll. Its soft and fresh and better than any chain sub place.

We've heard that they are known for their Philly Steak so that's what we ordered. Even with a few people in there it took forever for the food to be delivered. When it was I took one bit and there was so much gristle in the meat I could not bite through it. My husband managed to finish most of... More

After discovering the demise of one of our favorite local delis last weekend, I have decided to publish reviews of some of my favorite local eateries. Here, I will offer a brief review of Sub Conscious, a local sub shop that has been one of my go-to places since it opened in 1984. I ate lunch there today and while... More

My husband and I went here and got a Philly cheese steak sub, a grilled chicken wrap and cheesecake. The Philly was good, but in my opinion Andy's (Hwy 55) is better. The cheesecake was delicious, and the wrap was veryyy dry. I didn't know I needed to say EXACTLY everything I wanted on it so when asked, "What would... More

Everything these fine folks make is outstanding. They can make any kind of sub, any kind of sandwich, salad, pasta and pizza. The bread is fresh and all meats are freshly sliced (unlike Subway). The service is fast and friendly. They have a nice big screen TV for watching the game. Great place for good food at a reasonable price.... More

My wife and I have lived all over the country, and the Sub Conscious Special is the best we've had. It is the *only* thing I miss about Raleigh. If you are unfortunate enough to live in Raleigh, you owe it to yourself to try this place. The dining facilities are meager, but just use take-out.

These folks are artists of subs and sides. Very reasonable prices, near NC State campus. Very crowded at lunch time, easy to get in in afternoon or evening. Great staff, great spirit.
