Blimpie's is the only sandwich shop in the world awesome enough to have originated in Hoboken
, NJ. A true Jerseyan can defend that there are differences between a Blimpie and a typical "sub" such as one purchased at Subway, such as the differences in bread used and the Blimpie's superior quality. You do NOT buy a sub at Blimpie's, you buy a BLIMPIE. On an interesting note, when they first opened on Washington St. back in the 60's they gave away goldfish. Unfortunately the little fishies usually would not stay alive for more than a few days. They don't do that anymore, too bad.
