No. 63: "Monster" Hoagie from LaSpada's Original Hoagies

In an ideal situation, life would consist of three things: football, Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey, and a monster from LaSpada's Original Hoagies.

I may have a mild obsession with the rare roast beef. Or maybe the preparation process where the meat masters slice to order. Maybe it's their soft, buttery hoagies. It could possibly be that they place three layers of ham, turkey, and roast beef on the bottom of the sandwich, and on top. It tucks the veggie goodies inside like a meat blanket. It may not be as popular as the Italian special, which Manager Phil Kappes says gets about 65-70 percent of the orders, but it's the monster that will bring you to hoagie heaven. Check out one of their four locations in Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
