Like the earth, a sandwich is made of layers and gathers its strength from its meaty core, which pushes condiments toward the crust to erupt and bury fingers in deliciousness. Let rivers of mayo magma run with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of subs, fries, drinks, and more at Stanlieo's Sub Villa's two locations in Huntsville.
The cuisine concocters at Stanlieo's assemble an extensive slate of hearty ingredients into imaginative sandwiches and sides, creating a pervasively appetizing menu. Lovers of layers can gratify tiered-cuisine predilections with a bell-pepper-and-mushroom-equipped steak kabob ($5.90) or with a specialty kitchen sink sub packed tightly with seven meats, three cheeses, and one faucet ($6.65). Meatless dining routines can be sustained with 1 of 10 vegetarian sandwiches, such as the 10-inch vegetarian Reuben sub built with veggie corned beef, sauerkraut, and cheese ($5.90), or the OC special, a confluence of american, swiss, and provolone cheeses ($5). Augment a wholesome cold cut with a side of battered, whole-sliced onion rings, which are perfectly acceptable to incorporate into an earnest wedding proposal ($1.95/$3.55).
- As far as sub's go, Stanlieo's has the chains beat hands down (it's the cubed onion and pickle that win my heart). Nothing too gourmet or "fancy" about them, but if you just want a good solid sub sandwich, you can find it here. – The Dining Dragon
- They have a very convincing vegi [sic] Reuben which I get 99% of the time. When I was a carnivore, their Kitchen Sink (hot or cold) was a cult classic. – Zreet, Urbanspoon
Stanlieo’s Sub Villa
In 1971, Glenn Watson opened Stanlieo’s Sub Villa to bring Boston-style subs down South, topping them with cubed onions, pickles, and tomatoes, as well as salt and pepper, oregano, and oil. More than four decades later, the Watson family is still running the casual eatery, but today, they pile their freshly baked buns high at two locations. Fried pickles, mushrooms, and green tomatoes accompany steak subs out of the kitchen, and sandwich-smiths load up vegetarian subs with one of four vegetarian soy meats, as opposed to the Hormel meats they use for their regular subs and sculptures of Teddy Roosevelt. For those up to the challenge, the staff stuffs their famous Kitchen Sink sub with genoa and cotta salami, ham, turkey, roast beef, capicola, and pepperoni, as well as swiss, american, and provolone cheese in order to burst belts.
