The 4 Best Sub Restaurants in the Ocean City, Maryland Area

The 2021 The Best of Ocean City® voting is closed and the winners have been announced. Subs are always popular at the beach.  If you are a sandwich lover, you are in the right place! Ocean City has numerous places to get excellent subs, but here are the Best 4 Sub Restaurants selected by the Ocean City community.

“Best Italian sub around. Can’t get something that good at home.”

Billy’s Sub Shops, aka “Billy’s on the Beach” offers extra large, extra long, delicious subs served on fresh rolls delivered from Philadelphia daily, fresh dough pizzas, subs, milk shakes, ice cream, salads, and a family friendly beach. They have kids favorites like Dino nuggets and grilled cheeses served in a beach bucket with a juice box, making eating here a fun experience for them. Although they have won the Best Subs award, don’t forget they also do a great pizza! People have been eating here for generations (they’ve been around since 1959) and many now bring their own kids to start another Billy’s family traditions.

They offer delivery at no extra charge, to your home or the beach, and you can phone ahead to place your order and they’ll have it ready for you when you arrive.

Although the original owners of Anthony’s Carryout retired last year, Anthony’s Carryout is still here! Everything is good, but I’ll recommend the French Fries, the breakfast sandwiches (especially the Ham & Egg!), and the subs. You’ll notice that one large sub will easily feed four people! They are HUGE! It only takes ONE guy – at Anthony’s – to make the best burger in Ocean City!

These subs all have their own names, and visitors make it their first stop in Ocean City to buy their favorite! The original store was built shortly after World War II. Wine was added to the existing beer store in 1970 and the beer & wine store was joined to the chicken carry-out in 1982, allowing customers to come in and shop instead of walking up to the counter. In 1987, the store expanded into the shopping center to the north and their full scale deli was born. Their deli now features sandwiches, home made salads, and meats and cheeses, all sliced to order. They offer quality, selection, and friendly service.

And the Editor’s Choice Winner is…

Billy’s Sub Shop

Each year, the staff of and a group of locals go through each of the categories and give you an option we think deserves your consideration as the The Best of Ocean City® for 2021. We think you should definitely try the subs at Billy’s if you like fresh bread and meats that are sliced daily!
