Stopped in for a #2 to go 09/21/18. I started eating Elsie's subs over 50 years ago. I no longer live in the area, but returned in September for a reunion, and had to get one. By far the best subs in the country!

This sub shop opened in 1959 and my husband has been eating there since the beginning. It is our first stop when we get to NJ. It’s hard to pick a favorite but their turkey with cranberry and all the fixings or the Italian are...More

Located near the corners of Maple (Hwy 35) and Monmouth Elsie has been in town for ever. Home of classic NJ subs, this small shop has a variety of cold drinks deserts, and chips to complete the meal.

delicious NJ style subs- cute little store, you're able to take a seat and people watch as you eat. We really enjoyed the bread used for the subs, and the way the subs were made- cheese on the bottom! We have tried subs all over...More

My husband has been eating here since the 1970's. These are so good we used to take a dozen back to Texas with us. Enjoyed lunch so much yesterday will probably go back today. My favorite is the turkey mayo and cranberry.

Whenever I'm in Red Bank I stop by Elsie's to get my usual half tuna. I really like the small, old school sub shop feel to the place. Great people, solid food and good prices.

Every generation before us has recommended Elsie's and every generation after us will continue to recommend Elsie's. Their bread is the best. I don't think you'll find any Local that would disagree. ;)

Elsie's is unchanged since my dad and I ate there fifty years ago. Perhaps forty varieties of sub sandwiches. They are still made fresh from meats and cheeses sliced to order. And, uniquely, subs cut in halves, thirds, or quarters are delivered in little plastic...More
