The last time someone asked if I wanted mayo during Hoagie Quest it turned out to be one of worst Italian hoagies ever. (I’m looking at you, Dolce Carini!)

There is no straight Italian hoagie on the Corner Foodery menu, but I found out later that you can create your own sandwich from a selection of meats. I ordered The Godfather, the closest menu item, with prosciutto, pepperoni, coppa and sharp provolone (3 out of 5 of necessary ingredients).
Despite the overplayed name, The Godfather was quite good, but won't make it into the upper echelon of my Hoagie Quest list.
Definite bonus points were earned, though, by freshly slicing each meat for the order. You don't often see this, even at the best old-school delis. My biggest complaint would be with the balance of meat throughout the hoagie. A few bites seemed to be either all prosciutto or all pepperoni.
The seeded roll was also too chewy for my liking and left me with a slight case of hoagie jaw.
Forgetting the mayo bomb, The Corner Foodery attempts to do just about everything else right with their hoagies. I’m looking forward to going back to build a traditional Italian, to try other sandwiches or to partake in their killer breakfast deal.
The Corner Foodery also has an incredible selection of beer to-go and a seating area to watch a sports event. Grabbing a sandwich with a nice craft beer is always worth a trip.
