I have craved the Veggie Sub at Sub Shop Columbia MO for over 28 years now! I will go out of my way to stop in when I am in the area. I even beg friends traveling through Columbia to bring them to me. I try and make them at home but it's just not the same. They other sandwiches... More

This locally owned chain is a legend. Their claim to fame is their veggie sub. I have eaten at three of the restaurants and have never been disappointed. They do have a variety of subs, but I always get the veggie...it's amazing!

Sub Shop has been a landmark in Columbia MO since the 1970's. Truly homemade bread baked in house! They also do something unique to delivery...THEY DELIVER BREAKFAST!!!!! Delicious!!!!

They have good sandwiches but such terribly mediocre service. The hip vibe doesn't work when all the staff is consistently outside smoking and no one is inside to help you. Makes the food seem average because it is a pain to order, pain to get another drink, etc.

this place isn't the most fancy or cleanest ..but if you're looking for a unique local Columbia, quick sandwich stop, budget friendly, this place is great...the sandwiches are very good, and they have a few old arcade games there, which would be fun for children..the sandwich menu is awesome and the bread is always toasty

This place makes one of the best vegetarian subs I have ever tasted. I am only in Columbia a few more weeks, but I will definitely go back before I leave.

I have been eating at Sub Shop since 1975. You will not find a better hot sub and soup anywhere. I love the veggie on whole wheat and the onion soup. THe tomato soup is good too. This is not a chain, it is unique to Columbia. A must if you want to get to know Columbia.

If you went to MIZZOU and remember the great sandwiches ate at one of the Sub Shops as a student, well you won't be disappointed. Still yummy and still a great place to sit and eat. Highly recommend the vegetarian even if you are a meat eater.
