D.C.’s most essential dishes of 2016 - as of 2019 Our Italian Hoagie is still our best seller!!!

 Bub’s Italian Hoagie at Bub and Pop’s. (Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post)

 Bub’s Italian Hoagie at Bub and Pop’s
 Selected by Kyle Bailey, executive chef of Birch & Barley and the Arsenal

 For  Bailey, there is no better sandwich in the District than the Italian  hoagie at Bub and Pop’s. The bread makes the difference, he wrote: It  holds its own in a sandwich stacked with prosciutto, capicola,  pepperoni, salami and provolone. And there are cheffy touches, too:  house-made mayo; a relish made with hot pepper, sweet pepper and onion; a  top-secret vinaigrette; and a hearty but non-traditional shaving of  Pecorino Romano. “The meat-cheese-fixins’ ratio,” Bailey wrote, “is  always on point.”

  1815 M St. NW. www.bubandpops.com. $10 for a half sandwich; $18 for a whole, some sandwiches are priced differently.

Welcome to Bub and Pop's

 ~As teenagers in South  Philadelphia, Mae & Irv (Bub and Pop) Wagner fell in love and  married in their early 20s. They both loved delicious home-style food,  especially the delicacies of the 9th Street Italian Market. When Pop  returned from WWII - a decorated hero - they bought a small corner  grocery/deli in West Philly (photo now hangs in the restaurant) and  created their own style Italian Hoagie and Braised Beef Brisket  sandwiches. Almost 60 years later these sandwiches are the inspiration  for our menu as their grandson Jonathan reinvents these classics.
