The Heights will soon be home to the second Chinese Sub Shop in Memphis!
For those of you who have tried their sandwiches before you know how exciting this is. For those of you who haven’t you are in for a treat. Chinese Sub Shop is actually a nickname; the real name is Super Submarine Sandwich Shop.
Legend has it that University of Memphis college students began calling it Chinese Sub Shop in the 1970’s when the restaurant first opened on South Highland. They have been serving hot, delicious sandwiches and Chinese food to Memphians ever since. No word yet on when the sub shop will be open but we do know where it will be.
