KEYPORT HAS TWO of the top five preferred sub shops on the Jersey Shore. Think about that.

Jersey Shore Subs & Soups on Main Street and Mike’s Giant Submarine Sandwiches on West Front Street were rated Nos. 3 and 4 respectively in an Asbury Park Press reader’s poll.

That’s something, right?

Sure, reader’s surveys in any form are hardly an accurate take on the actual perspectives, according to the media professionals. But consider this: More than 400 people wrote to the Press to praise their favorite spots. Getting 400 people to do anything is a challenge.

Think about how many sub shops are on routes 35 and 36. Now, just project that on a two county area. The one conclusion you can make is…

… Keyport is likely the best place to get a sandwich.
