This my absolute favorite sub shop! The subs at Big Daddy's are always fresh, and filled just enough to satisfy your appetite. The BLT, minus the T, has been my long-standing favorite for years. The shop does get busy at lunch time. They do have booths to eat in or you can order your subs to go. They have always... More

I never really used the Tripadvisor app in the past though it was on my phone...But I will from now on! We were at a gas station up the road when we decided to eat lunch in Rome. I used the app to find the closest that was ranked good enough and not fast food. I found this place and... More

Their selections here are a little lackluster, from toppings to sides and drinks, but for a simple sub it is quite good. Will return.

I live and work in Rome, so I've been to this sandwich shop a few times. I find their prices to be reasonable and the food to be good. I normally get the eggplant parmesan and enjoy it. The only issue is that they can be a little slow if there are a lot of people and it can be... More

This place serves the best subs money can buy. They aren't a franchise as far as I know and the nice ladies behind the counter put the subs together with a smile and a nice attitude. I highly recommend this place and they have pickeled eggs to with their subs!

Fresh subs made to order. There is just something about Big Daddy's sub shop that has brought me back over and over for the last 40 years! I highly recommend this place.

Big Daddy's is an iconic sub shop in Rome. You feel like it you are time warped back to the 1950's (or so). The best part of their sandwiches is the fresh rolls and consistency. Just note that they only accept cash!

Living in the Rochester , NY area we have Wegmans sub shops in the stores...They are huge, full of meat & served on a yummy fresh baked hearty roll. This place served our subs this week on what looked like a large hot dog bun...pure garbage! A small amount of meat completed the rotten "sub" The staff is curt at... More

We have eaten here a few times. There isn't anything exceptionally special about it. The food is okay and prices are okay.

Worst. Place. Ever. I'm a guy who loves a good sandwich. I was in the mood for a Rachel, so I called up and placed my order. Anyone who knows anything at all about sandwiches knows that a Rachel is pastrami or turkey, cole slaw and 1000 Island or Russian dressing. What I got was ham, kraut and some mystery... More
