The folks who have been dishing up huge and hugely delectable meat blankets to sammie-savvy Browardites for 36 years have brought their overstuffed hoagies across the border to Boca Raton.
The fourth LaSpada's Original Hoagies is now slapping together their appetite-busting eight- and 12-inch subs in The Commons shopping center, just across the street from the mammoth Town Center mega mall. The same fresh-baked bread, mounds o' meat, and signature sweet and hot peppers that grace LaSpada's dozen-plus hoagies and earned them Best Sandwich honors in New Times' 2009 Best Of listing are already attracting a steady trickle of customers to the modest little shop.
Modest too are prices, topping out at $10.95 for a "Monster," 12 throbbing inches of ham, roast beef, turkey, cheese, tomatoes, lettuce, onions, pickles, sweet or hot peppers, oil and vinegar, salt and pepper, and oregano approximately the size of a duffel bag. It's so big your appetite may need a fluffer.
