The Original Godfather sub (“often replicated never duplicated”) is Anthony’s signature sandwich; in a world of deli sandwiches, the Godfather is a true Italian creation (as proved by its large group of ingredients).
The Godfather is composed of: “salami, pepperoni, ham cappicola, proscuitini, mortadella, sopresatta, provolone, lettuce, oil & vinegar, hot peppers served on Arthur Avenue Italian bread”; and the vast amount of Italian spice contained inside is amazing and works really well to make an authentic Italian sandwich.
For those who don’t know, Arthur Avenue bread is some of the best around, so deciding to use it on your sandwich is automatically a great decision. Each of the meats involved brings their own unique spice and flavor, the provolone adds to the Italian flair, the lettuce provides a nice crunch, and the oil and vinegar provided tang and moisture. But one of the most noticeable parts of this sandwich is the peppers.
To say this sub has peppers on it is an understatement; the inside of the bread is thoroughly lined with them, both hot and sweet. The sheer amount of peppers involved means you get a mildly sweet burn that carries throughout your entire consumption experience.
There is literally nothing like a Godfather sub, and no one does it better than Anthony’s; so if you want a truly authentic Italian-American deli sandwich, you need to visit Anthony’s Deli.*
*One thing that must be noted for first time buyers at Anthony’s is that they are a cash only establishment; credit/debit cards are not accepted (although they do have an ATM inside). But hey, that’s part of the charm.
