I have been searching in every city I travel on business for some place that can serve a true sub or hoagie. This place rang the bell.

I tried this place for the first time after seeing the reviews. The reviews are 100% on the money regarding the great service, the staff it great!! I liked the Italian sandwich, however I did not love it. Meaning, I was probably expecting to be WOWED with this amazing, one of a kind experience (based on reviews). The portion was... More

We stopped in Ancient City Subs again on our Florida vacation. These guys make the best subs in the world! Andy and Rhonna are real people who run a family owned, locally sourced business. If you love Jax, you will love ACS!

I am highly impressed with Ancient City Subs. I pass it everyday and have been reluctant to try. So glad I did! First off, service was phenomenal. Everyone there was so nice and helpful! The subs were awesome. I mean, seriously awesome. I had the roast beef. Husband got the Italian. We bought wholes - but each only had a... More

My wife and I found this place searching on the internet. Great reviews and I really wanted a Cuban sandwich so we went. Midday Saturday it wasn't too busy yet but a steady stream followed. Very friendly and attentive staff. Ordered Cuban and also a Chicken Club. The whole sub is quite large and my wife thought the half was... More

Went here over a year ago due to reviews on this website. At the time it was the #1 restaurant in Jax so we had to try it. My husband and I both agree it was worthy of the title. We both had great sandwhiches and thought it was the best sub we had ever had. Way better than other... More

The variety in this sub shop is incredible! I've had the cuban, soups, and cake pops. The new beef dip is to die for! The portions of meat are always very generous and the flavors and spices they use are amazing. Croissants are always flaky and buttery and you can never go wrong with a pressed cuban. The vibe is...

Sub was good. If this place put more meat on their subs they would be top of the list for sub places. But the amount of meat on the sub is small.

I walk to lunch almost everyday, just to get out of the office, and pass three other subs shops on the way to Ancient City. Round trip is almost 2 miles. YES THEY ARE THAT GOOD! Any sub on the menu can be toasted and/or pressed. The salads and wraps are great too. The soup is amazing and the home... More
