“Outstanding Subs !”

Viola's Submarine House

Reviewed 29 May 2014

This place might make the best subs you have ever eaten. They have made a million steak & cheese subs with their signature sub oil but all of their selections are terrific. Just think of a place like this where you live that you know has been slamming for years, and that's Viola's. The Elmwood location is OK (tiny) but in a funky location in the inner city.

Viola's has booth's so you can watch just how many subs they make while you are sitting eating yours. Phenomenal family business for decades.

I have been going to this restaurant since 1963. Back then, steak & cheese subs were 99 cents! Someone got it right from the get go. They never changed their recipe or style of serving and now children and grandchildren of the original customers are enjoying their product. Most order the "double/double." That's a double steak and double cheese. Onions and tomato are diced and their special oil, oregano and salt tops off the condiments. No lettuce or other toppings are available. Pop is dispensed in three different size cups. Items such as french fries, potato chips or pickles are not offered. The sub is wrapped tightly in plastic wrap which sometimes creates an inconvenience for "rookies." Eat in subs are placed on a napkin, no plates available. Bus your own table when done. I was recently ordering a sub at 3 pm and there were 6 people in line in front of me. The flat top was completely covered in steak. When I received my order and sat down, I counted 11 people behind me. Mind you, this is between the lunch and dinner hour! If you want to be waited on and pampered, this pace is NOT for you. But if you want the best sub in Niagara Falls or on the east coast, this place IS for you!
