Dining Out: Island Sub and Burger in Manoa

One of our favorite takeout places in Manoa is Island Sub and Burger.   Inexpensive, great food tucked away in the Manoa Marketplace.  The only thing is, they close early (7:30PM and even earlier on Sundays).

Half of the penne w/marinara
1/2 of a Chicken Philly 6 inch
We haven't tried everything...we haven't even tried their burgers...but the male half of this couple loves their marinara sauce.  For $4.95, you can get a nice sized serving of penne with marinara and a small piece of garlic bread.  We'd ordered it in the past with chicken...but for the extra money, the chicken is nothing to write home about.   We normally share the penne with marinara and one of our other favorites, the Chicken Philly sandwich.  Another great deal.  There aren't too many restaurants in Hawaii who can cook up a Philly sandwich up to a Pennsylvanian's liking.  Island Sub and Burger uses that CheezWhiz stuff on theirs which makes their cheese really gooey...mmm.  One of our friends reminded us shredded cheese has an anti-caking agent which when melted will never melt into that gooeyness of CheezWhiz.  Their philly sandwiches may not be the best or equal to the ones you can get in Philadelphia..but for Manoa, we love it.

We've also tried their Reuben sandwiches which are also very good.

If you're looking for an inexpensive, but great tasting fast food meal, Island Sub and Burger is worth a try.
