If you're a foodie or sandwich lover today is the day to have a sub stuffed with all of your favorites! That's right, it's National Eat a Hoagie Day!

A sub, hero or hoagie is a giant sandwich filled with meats, cheeses, vegetables, sauces and seasonings. According to National Day Calendar, some trace the origins of the hoagie back to Philly during the first World War. Shipyard workers would feast on huge sandwiches. One would be considered a hog if they were to eat the giant sandwich all at once.

In honor of National Eat a Hoagie Day, NJ.com just released a list of the best subs shops in the Garden State. According to the list, the best sub shop in all of Atlantic County can be found in Mays Landing at Sugar Hill Sub Shop on Mays Landing-Somers Point Road Road. Sugar Hill been serving awesome subs since 1982. I have to try their Gut Buster or Italian Stallion sandwich!

Honorable mention goes to Vic's in Absecon and Tony Boloney's in Atlantic City!

In Cape May County, the best sub shop can be found at Voltaco's in Ocean City located on West Ave. Voltaco's has been serving subs in Ocean City since 1954. I'll have to try the Eggplant Italiano which is fried eggplant and roasted red peppers!

Honorable mention goes to Russo's Market in North Wildwood and Westside Market in Cape May.

Have a sub, hero or hoagie for lunch or dinner today!
