Real good subs here. You don't go for atmosphere, but for just a good old sub - which is surprisingly hard to find! Their bread is top notch and always get it covered in the dressing. We always get the regular or the turkey with provolone - and the sandwiches are huge enough to split. Along with the fried cauliflower... More

We originally came from Williamsport, PA and grew up on "subs". When we moved to Elmira we were depressed with the "sub" choices (sorry - dislike Subway) until we found this sub shop. Not a lot to look at for atmosphere but great subs (my opinion) and feels and smells like the old sub shops from Williamsport!

Love the subs from the Sub Shop, they are great for lunch or dinner. Quick service, the employees remember me when I come in and know what I want! The recipe hasn't changed in years and if you're a fan of the original Sub Shop, this location is just as good.

I first had a Southside Sub back when I was in high school. That was over 40 years ago. They are still the best subs I've ever had.

I have been going to southside sub shop for 30 years. I have NEVER been disappointed in my sub from there. Their bread is fantastic, their regular sub is my favorite with hot peppers, oregano, and grated cheese.

Poor meat quality, very limited ingredients. 10.75 for a large sub and soda. Definitely better off going to Byrne Dairy or Wegmans.

Whenever I'm craving a really good sub I come here. Any Elmira native knows the best sub in town is Southside Sub Shop! I don't know where they get their rolls, but it's the softest roll, and the meats always seem fresh.

Good subs, good prices, nothing fancy,quick service, not handicap accessible. This store is not on the Southside so it should be Southside Sub Shop II.
