Best Bites

Xspero picks the best bites from South Jersey sandwich shops.

There’s something so special about South Jersey sandwich shops that always have us tapping our toes until lunchtime. Maybe it’s the fresh meats, fluffy rolls, or Jersey reds in the summer that make every bite a delight. Either way, we all have our personal favorites from South Jersey sandwich shops, whether they’re in or out of town.

But what if we told you that your favorite lunch special could help a charity, too, without costing you one cent more? From now until August 31, we’re giving back 100 percent of profits raised through the Xspero™ app to businesses and charities around South Jersey. So, now you can dine and donate with ease and without spending more.

Here are four South Jersey sandwich shops we love (and sandwiches we love even more!).

Atlantic City Sub Shops: Atlantic City Sub Shop in Egg Harbor Township relies on “the same unbeatable recipes and ingredients” that has served them for decades to make their delicious subs, sandwiches, wraps, and more. Check out our favorite the next time you’re in town!

Xspero’s Pick: Chicken Dijon

Tender white meat chicken kissed with honey Dijon dressing and grilled to perfection. Served on a sub roll with romaine lettuce—oh, and ask for it toasted for a little something extra!

BJ Roasters: Located at 233 North High Street in Millville, BJ Roasters is a favorite among townies and those passing through. With fresh rotisserie and fried chicken and their own “secret blend” of dry rub, there’s always something to savor with this Xspero™ merchant. Try our pick below and let us know how you handle the heat!

Xspero’s Pick: Buffalo Chicken

Served on a small round roll or half sub roll, BJ’s roasted buffalo chicken sandwich is tender and juicy with a kick, covered in a sultry dry wing seasoning and your choice of ranch or bleu cheese.

Upper Sandwiches in Palermo gives new meaning to freshness. With beef roasted on site, homemade soups and sauces, and fresh tomatoes, cucumbers, and herbs grown from their own organic greenhouse, this South Jersey sandwich is the flavor of freshness.

Xspero’s Pick: The Gyro

You can’t go wrong with seasoned beef or chicken from Upper Sandwiches on perfectly toasted pita with house made tzatziki sauce and feta cheese! Delicious—or as they say in Greek, nóstima!

Bagel University in Vineland is known for their fresh bagels and delicious cream cheese, but their university paninis, clubs, and breakfast sandwiches always earn an A+.

Xspero’s Pick: Pepperdine University Panini

If you love broccoli rabe, you’ll love this fresh panini with provolone, roasted peppers, and hummus. Served with homemade potato salad, pasta salad, or cole slaw. Yum!
