For your Philadelphia Eagles NFC Championship Game Sunday planning, we’re reacquainting you with the results of our listeners and readers survey of the best cheesesteak subs in the Atlantic City area.

Perhaps this will get you in the mood to have one of these iconic subs that are unique to our area.

No other area of America can make the Atlantic City sub roll. It’s all in the chemistry of the Atlantic City water that makes the creation of Formica-Freitag and Rando sub rolls possible.

We had so much fun putting together a friendly reader/listener survey … in search of who makes the best cheesesteak sub in the Atlantic City area?

Here is how the vote turned out.

Here’s a brief biography of the winner of our friendly listener and reader competition.

The White House Sub Shop of Atlantic City opened in 1946 during World War II.

Founded by Anthony "Tony" Basile, along with his Aunt Basilia and Uncle Alfred "Fritz" Sacco. Prior to this, the front of the Arctic Avenue building was Mr. Basile's tailor shop.

After the war, they closed the tailor shop and “opened the front of the building as a cold ‘submarine’ sandwich shop.”

A very cool fun fact: The fountain and grill hood found today in the front was from the original store.

From The Beatles to Frank Sinatra, The White House Sub Shop has been an iconic establishment that makes a truly great sub.
