Best Meatball Sub in Raleigh? Comment for a Chance to Win

OK, so where’s the best meatball sub in Raleigh? I’m talking about delicious, homemade Italian meatballs with spicy marinara and lots of gooey cheese. The kind that comes on a freshly baked roll that’s crusty on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside. The kind that requires at least two napkins.

The last time I asked for people to recommend the best place to get a burger in the Triangle, in exchange for a chance of winning a Visa gift card, I got a number of wonderful suggestions and had a blast trying out as many as I could (oh, the things I do for this blog!)

This time, all of you who make recommendations by commenting to this post automatically will be included in a drawing to win a $25.00 gift card to Harris Teeter. So please let me know where I need to conduct my next round of market research, before I go meatless for the summer. You never know, you may be like my coworker Trina, who won the drawing last time!

The deadline to be eligible for the gift card drawing is Sunday, 1/22/12!

Eat, drink and be merry!

    MINE! Just kidding. 🙂 I think the best meatball sub I have had is “Great Grandma Rose’s Meatball Sandwich” at Anvil’s Cheesesteaks:

  2. Rosemary says:

    Just a little ways up the road in Durham the best I’ve had is at Italian Pizzarie on Guess Rd.

    Itallian Restaurant named Assaggio’s Italian Bistro on Glenwood Avenue, 3501 W. Millbrook Road
    Raleigh, NC 27613. Web:

  4. Ben says:

    Antonio’s Gourmet Market in Lafayette Village (north Raleigh) does a pretty good meatball sub.

  5. Trina says:

    I’m not even sure the last time I had a meatball sub. So hopefully some good suggestions will come from the others. Thanks

  6. Sub Concious! I researched it.

  7. Ashley Sisk says:

    I have no idea – it’s been forever since I’ve had a good meatball sub but I’d love to research with you! I would think Assaggios on Glenwood would be a good place to start.

  8. Lee Smither says:

    I haven’t had it in awhile but Player’s Retreat on Oberlin Road used to have a good meatball sub with a wonderful marinara sauce!

  9. Shirley Gardner says:

    Assaggio’s on W. Millbrook has great meatball subs!

    I can’t say that I’ve ever had a meatball sub anywhere other than Subway, so I’m gonna have to go with Subway. Something tells me they’re not gonna take the cake ;).
    Love your blog!

  11. Terri Wilkinson says:

    I’m not one to respond to such questions but, I think Amedeos just might have the best meatball subs. That is just my opinion.

  12. Joe Griner says:

    For me growing up it was Amedeo’s next to the Cardinal Theatre at North Hills.

  13. Kelly Stovall says:

    For me it’s a toss-up between Firehouse Subs and Buffalo Brothers!

    Milton’s Pizza = A dream come true for all Triangle Meatball lovers! Where else could you find a meatball sub named “The ACC”? This Classic meatball sub has marinara sauce, onions and
    melted provolone cheese. Want to start your Meatball Sub with an order of……….meatballs? Milton’s conveniently has Meatball Sliders on the Appetizer menu for 6.99. If your meatball appetizer + meatball sub are not enough…….then top your pizza, Milton’s Spaghetti or “The Bonavita,” (The Ultimate Spaghetti) entree with more meatballs. Cheers!

  15. Ahhh – meatball heaven! Love Milton’s Pizza and lasagna, so I can imagine how good the sub is. We should go there for lunch soon. Thanks, Michelle!

    Anzio’s Rolesville NC

  17. julie ler says:

    North ridge pub by far the best

  18. I rarely get to eat out anymore, so Subway is the only place I’ve had a meatball sub. Not very impressive. I sometimes make them at home with extra cheese, but I guess that doesn’t count either.

  19. And the winner of the gift card is … Lee Smither! Congratulations, Lee and I do plan on trying PR’s version of one of my favorite subs.

    Thanks to everyone who commented, and I can’t wait to try some of your recommendations! Be on the lookout for another giveaway in the next few months. Until then, eat, drink and be merry!
