You can get a similar sub at any gas station. The chili was tasteless. The service was horrible, was treated like an annoyance. To top it off they only take cash.

I've been going to Big Daddy's for over 40 yrs. Very good sub shop. Nothing fancy or fake, just very good sandwiches.

I had heard all sort of good things about this place from coworkers and was intrigued. However, between the setup, the scrubs that the workers wear and the blandness of the food, I felt like I was getting food at a hospital cafeteria. The prices were okay for the portions but not fantastic. There is also a lack of seating... More

Daddy's has excellent "make your choice" sub sandwiches which can be enhanced by soup, homemade potato or macaroni salad, and chips. Beverages include soda, lemonade, coffee, tea, bottled water, milk. Desserts are available. Everything is fresh. There is inside seating or take-out.

This is NOT your typical subway. Fresh bread, fresh meats, fresh EVERYTHING! We absolutely love this place. They don't take credit cards but we don't even care. We will go to the ATM before coming here, not a big deal bc the subs are the best. They have such a great selection too. 20 out of 10! 👌🏼

This my absolute favorite sub shop! The subs at Big Daddy's are always fresh, and filled just enough to satisfy your appetite. The BLT, minus the T, has been my long-standing favorite for years. The shop does get busy at lunch time. They do have booths to eat in or you can order your subs to go. They have always... More

I never really used the Tripadvisor app in the past though it was on my phone...But I will from now on! We were at a gas station up the road when we decided to eat lunch in Rome. I used the app to find the closest that was ranked good enough and not fast food. I found this place and... More

Their selections here are a little lackluster, from toppings to sides and drinks, but for a simple sub it is quite good. Will return.

I live and work in Rome, so I've been to this sandwich shop a few times. I find their prices to be reasonable and the food to be good. I normally get the eggplant parmesan and enjoy it. The only issue is that they can be a little slow if there are a lot of people and it can be... More

This place serves the best subs money can buy. They aren't a franchise as far as I know and the nice ladies behind the counter put the subs together with a smile and a nice attitude. I highly recommend this place and they have pickeled eggs to with their subs!
