D & M Subs – Escanaba, MI
D & M Subs is an Escanaba Institution. This is the type of place you hope to stumble across on a cross country road trip, when your sick of Subway and just want to find a little small town sub shop with employees that can actually put a sub together without asking you fifty times if you wanted tomatoes.
What? Is that just me?
At any rate, I’ve been frequenting D & M for well over a decade and they deliver consistent quality every time. It’s a simple sub shop just off Ludington Street in Escanaba, MI, but they go a little over and above on the quality. They bake their bread fresh daily, and they’re super generous when they pile on the meat and veggies. (I’m pretty sure everything here is already “double meat.”)
Oh, and these subs are BIG. The regular is as long as a sixteen ounce bottle of soda is high, and their “mini” is almost enough for me, and I’m not small.
On top of that, the people behind the counter don’t screw around.
You know how at some “other” sub shops, you shudder if there’s a crowd because you realize you just blew half your lunch break (because the line moves like molasses)? Well, you’ll find none of that here. These people can crank out subs like nobody’s business.
My family and I will sometimes grab subs from D&M for the road while driving through Escanaba on the way to Munising or Mackinaw Island. We just pop them in the cooler, then pull over along some scenic stretch of shoreline and have lunch.
You could also snag a couple subs on a nice summer day and continue down Ludington Street to Ludington Park for a lakeshore picnic. Aww… how romantic, eh?

Bottom Line: D & M Subs cranks out consistently good subs. You should try one!
