Throwback Thursday – Football Sandwich Shop in Miami #TBT

Throwback Thursday brings one of our first restaurant articles published on – this one dating back to June 2007.  What’s amazing is that Doug is still there with his great smile and service and the sandwiches are still delicious!!  **And please don’t call us to place orders**

Have you ever driven by a really ugly looking place and you see that it is packed with cars and wonder if it is any good?

I mean absolutely no offense to the owners of The Football Sandwich Shop in Miami but they know that their pink building is everything but pretty – one thing is for sure though, everything I have ever eaten there is delicious!  The outside has no reflection on the taste of the food.


So heres the scoop.  This is a family owned establishment that has been in the same location ever since I can remember.  Their subs are to die for,  I always have a Steak Sub or a Turkey Sub, but they have everything from Grilled Chicken Phillys to Corned Beef and even Cuban Sandwiches.  They also have Deli-Sandwiches and are known as the ‘Home of the Zonker’ (Ham, Salami and Provolone Cheese).

The place is always Jam-packed and you can sit outside or in, can pick up through the drive through window and they even deliver.

The Football Sandwich Shop is one of those small town community places that you cannot miss.  You will always be greeted by one of the owners, everyone there is super friendly and always very attentive.  They are located just South of Miami Shores and El Portal on Northeast 2nd Avenue. (8484 NE 2nd Avenue – 305-759-3602 and 305-756-7996).

If you go by, dont forget to say hi to Doug or Dick – one of them is bound to be there – they give the place a special touch.


Did I make you hungry yet?  The Football Sandwich Shop – ‘Home of The Zonker’…another MIAMISM .

Contact the Football Sandwich Shop directly at:  305-759-3602 and 305-756-7996 – It’s been a running joke between Doug and us that people are calling us to place orders.
