That's because Cousins Subs doesn't take shortcuts on taste. We use only the freshest, highest quality ingredients and load them all on our signature fresh baked bread. It's our proven recipe for a delicious sandwich. But we don't stop there; we also offer salads, soups, sides and dessert items to satisfy any craving.

  • BETTER BREAD - Using the same recipe that our founders developed back in 1972, you'll still find us baking bread in every store - two or three times each day. Our secret recipe delivers the perfect amount of crunch in the crust and keeps our loyal guests coming back again and again.
  • BETTER MEATS AND CHEESES - We slice our meats in-store daily. We also provide only the highest quality cheeses. It's that commitment to deli freshness that makes our subs taste better.

  • BETTER TOPPINGS - We're focused on freshness and giving our customers all the toppings they want. That's why we offer a wide variety of fresh vegetables, tasty dressings and other condiments that can be added to customize any sub.
  • BETTER SUBS - When our customers step up to the counter they know their made-to-order sub will always be fresh and delicious. What's more, all of our new stores offer a flat-top grill, so they can get their favorite sub cold or grilled to perfection.
