Restaurants: Subs/Sandwich Shop
Just steps from the John Carroll University campus but nearly 40 years removed this outpost of Dave Lombardys original psychedelic sub shop is big, colorful and comfy, with the same 1960s-style art and artifacts that decorate his numerous other area locations. Same big menu of giant, overstuffed subs too, along with a few salads, some chips and cookies for dessert.
The architecture of downtown Hudson may be the epitome of preppy, but tripping through the doorway into Dave's is like waking up back at Kent State circa 1969. Yet even without the psychedelic decor, we would gladly stage a love-in here, just to savor Dave's oversized subs, stuffed with fresh ingredients and wrapped in the best crisp-crusted rolls in the region.
Part of a no-frills Illinois chain, the region's first Jimmy John's specializes in plump, fresh, and remarkably inexpensive subs and giant club sandwiches, including several options for vegetarians. And in a tip o' the hat to downtown's remaining workers, JJ's delivers.
