Sandwich Shop: The Sub Shop

With two locations in Springfield, The Sub Shop has been a local favorite for more than 40 years. Although it’s still cash-only, the secret to its staying power is clear: Sandwiches are made with a foundation of freshly baked bread and topped with Sub Sauce, a beloved house secret.
