In honor of National Meatball Day, our team of readers, listeners, friends and family member foodies have picked the best meatballs that are available in the Atlantic City, New Jersey.

In my view, however, there is only one absolute best meatball and meatball parmesan sub in the Atlantic City, New Jersey area.

The undisputed GOAT in my opinion is:

Petes Subs & Deli in Egg Harbor Township, New Jersey.

Many of the veteran Pete's Subs staff received their training from the legendary White House Sub Shop in Atlantic City.

The wonderful Atlantic City Italian Bread (sub roll) is always fresh, which is critical.

Atlantic City Italian Bread must be fresh! Don't settle for anything less.

Here is another Pete's Subs fun fact.

You can't order a meatball or meatball parmesan sub at Pete's Subs until 11:00 a.m., because the meatballs are made fresh every morning.

The size of the meatballs are enormous and delicious. However, size alone is not the key.

The texture and taste is perfect every time.

Another key is the sauce. The Pete's sauce bursts with flavor.

Pete's Subs offers this important advice. They strongly recommend not asking for your 1/2 of meatball sub to be cut in galf, again.

They routinely cut their other subs in half.

However, with Pete's meatball sub, it is so packed with meatballs and sauce ... so eat them 1/2 at a time.

It is my favorite sub shop, with White House, Dino's and Sack ‘O Subs rounding out my "Mount Rushmore" of Atlantic City area sub shops.

We hereby handout a well earned honorable mention to Congress Hall, where you can get meatballs in The Boiler Room.

They are some of the most fabulous meatballs that you will find anywhere … and, if they were located in the Atlantic County area, they would have made our “Mount Rushmore” list.

Vic’s Subs in Absecon and Sugar Hill in Mays Landing are also outstanding.

From, they write:

Meatballs are probably a gift from the heavens—there are early recipes for meatballs are found in ancient Chinese, Arabic and Roman texts-and every culture seems to have their own version! Beef, pork, and veal are most popular, but they can be made with chicken, fish or even vegan. Let's all rejoice on March 9 in honor of National Meatball Day.

Further, says about meatballs:

Bon appétit.
