Heroes who stand the the test of time are hard to come by, and so are those of the sandwich variety. Thankfully, a month ago, a new sub shop called Heros opened up in North Miami. The vibe is classic Americana with some unpretentious but delicious sandwiches.
Hidden in a strip mall, this super Heros quietly awaits its call to fame, like Clark Kent before the glasses come off and the cape comes on.
Enter the deli and see a wall of heroes to inspire and rev up your appetite.
The menu features subs, wraps and salads. Try the American Hero ($8.50 for 8-inch or $10.50 for a 12-inch). This best seller sandwich comes with trio of roast beef, turkey and ham — just like red, white and blue. The stars and stripes come from the cheese and condiments, which include lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onion, sweet and banana peppers, jalapeños, and black olives.
The nice thing about Heros subs is that a server slices the meat and cheese right in front of you on each sandwich and you get a choice of white or wheat bread.
Other sandwiches to try are the G.I. Joe with salami, ham, roast poark and ham, the Ricky Ricardo their version of a Cuban sandwich and the Full Metal Jacket which is a hot meatball hero.
Also, for future reference their Einstein is their veggie sub, the Ronald Reagan has turkey and cheese and if you are looking for pastrami, try the JFK.
