To subvert grumpy monarchs, angry medieval youths scrawled condiment graffiti like "Fran Tanner has plague" or "the king is a jerk" inside their sandwiches. Dig beneath lettuce to bring history to light with today's Groupon: for $4, you get $8 worth of Italian sandwiches, soups, and more at DiBella's Old Fashioned Submarines. This Groupon can be used at the Williamsville, Tonawanda, or Cheektowaga location.
The menu of old-fashioned fare, such as made-to-order subs atop just-baked bread, is as fresh as a caveman emerging from a block of ice. The café's long list of namesake sandwiches come in three sizes to accommodate munchers of every magnitude, ranging from classic turkey ($5.59 for a medium), tuna ($5.59 for a medium), and veggie ($4.49 for a medium) varieties to gussied-up grub such as meatballs in marinara with mozzarella ($5.99 for a medium). Those raised by a family of cured meats can reunite with a savory surrogate Godfather, which is piled high with genoa salami, capicola, and spicy ham ($5.99 for a medium).
DiBella's original Italian market opened back in 1918 and now has roots in Buffalo, Rochester, Ann Arbor, Pittsburgh, and Cleveland, with plans to toss anchor to the parmesan moon sometime between the years 2011 and 20012. Devoted to quality and customer satisfaction, the staff works hard to maintain the integrity of their original recipes so that grandma can maintain the integrity of her denture-clad smile.
