Subway Secret Menu

While the endless customization options may seem like a Subway secret menu in itself, there are many tried and true secret recipes and hacks that you are sure to love! If there are any recipes you can’t get enough of, leave them in the comments below!

It’s no secret that Subway has always been a very reliable lunch option for a lot of people, with a wide range of delicious custom combinations you can make as well as their extensive menu, it is certainly a great spot for a quick bite.

It is important to note that the items on these Subway secret menu offerings vary from location to location. Additionally, some of these customizations aren’t known by name to employees, so if your employee doesn’t know the dish’s name, ask for it by ingredients.

Subway Secret Menu

The Old Cut

Let’s start this article off with a well-loved hack. In the case of those who love to stuff their sandwiches to the brim, the straight across cutting style that Subway uses now can limit just how much will fit into a sandwich without spilling out, this is where the old cut comes in. People may remember that instead of the straight across cut they do now, they made a concave cut from the top to hold all the ingredients more securely.

To get your bread cut in the old style, you can simply ask for the old cut – or ask to have the bread cut from the top instead of the side.

The Feast Sub

Another great Subway secret menu option for those who like to fill their sub to the brim, the feast sub is a fantastic menu item! With five different kinds of meat, and your choice of everything else, you’ll certainly leave feeling full and satisfied!

To get this delicious meat filled sub, you can ask for equal amounts of salami, ham, roast beef, turkey, and pepperoni (sources vary on how many pieces of each meat are included, but the approximate is 4-6 pieces of each) as well as whatever other toppings you’d like! Many employees at Subway note that at minimum this will cost $13.

Deconstructed Breakfast Taco

There is nothing better than the deconstructed breakfast taco for a quick and easy breakfast. It is packed with a variety of ingredients such as egg whites, steak, onions, tomatoes, and guacamole, which will keep you full and satisfied for quite some time.

You can get this breakfast taco sandwich by ordering a flatbread filled with guacamole, steak, egg whites, spinach, red onions, slices of tomatoes, and top it with the spicy Chipotle sauce on top.

Eggs Florentine Flatbread

When you are looking for a more French take on breakfast, the eggs florentine flatbread is the perfect thing to indulge in. Eggs Florentine is a classic breakfast dish consisting of poached eggs served on a bed of cooked spinach and topped with a creamy Hollandaise sauce, and this take adds a delicious flatbread as the base.

To order this flatbread, ask for a flatbread with egg whites, spinach, red onions, olives, and banana peppers. Since Subway doesn’t carry hollandaise sauce as an option, Italian dressing is used in its place and is equally delicious!

The Carnivore

There are a lot of meat lovers out there who will enjoy this sandwich. As with the Feast sub, this sandwich offers plenty of protein as well as being absolutely delicious. This sub contains plenty of steak, bacon, and pepperoni and you can even add more on this if you like.

It is possible to get this by simply ordering a sub on whatever type of bread you want, and asking for four scoops of steak, and six slices each of bacon and pepperoni to go on the sandwich, similarly to the feast sub, you can customize your veggies, cheeses, and sauces as you wish.

Sweet & Sour Chicken Sub

The sweet and sour chicken sub used to be a popular menu item, and it’s still one of the most unique lunch choices around. What many people may not know though is that many Subway locations still have all of the ingredients to make this delicious sandwich!

You can get this sub by ordering a chicken sub, topped with banana peppers, red onions, and tomatoes, and smothered with subway’s sweet onion sauce and their red wine vinaigrette.

Chicken Parmesan Sub

Another item that was once a popular menu staple is the chicken parmesan sub. This delicious sandwich features their flavorful marinara sauce, tender chicken breast, and plenty of tasty toppings to go with it.

You can start with your favorite bread from the menu (we recommend the Italian Herbs & Cheese Bread) and get roasted chicken breast, olives, spinach, and their marinara sauce. For an extra depth to this sandwich, you can get cracked black pepper on top.

The Spicy Nacho Steak

For an extra kick of spice during your lunch break, this spicy nacho sandwich fits the bill. With delicious steak combined with spicy jalapeños, bell peppers, and one sandwich hack that many people love: Doritos. The crunch of the chips inside this sandwich gives it an extra delicious twist.

To get this, ask for a steak sandwich with shredded monterey jack cheese, bell peppers, onions, and Doritos before being toasted. Once the sandwich is out of the toaster, you can get as much chipotle sauce as you want.

As a note for this recipe, some subway locations may not be able to put the Doritos on your sandwich while making it, in this case you can simply add the Doritos afterwards.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sub

There’s nothing more delicious than a Chicken Cordon Bleu Sub made with chicken, ham, and cheese. A creamy honey mustard sauce tops off the tender slices of ham and Swiss cheese on top of the chicken. There is no doubt that this sandwich will satisfy those who are looking for something savory with a distinctively rich and creamy flavor.

To get this delicious sandwich, you can ask for a chicken sub, topped with ham and swiss, tomatoes, and spinach, with a honey mustard drizzle on top. If you want the sandwich to feel even more like a chicken cordon bleu, you can ask for it toasted.

Grilled Cheese Sub

In spite of the fact that this may seem like a simple item to be included on the Subway secret menu, sometimes the simplest dishes are the most satisfying. The sandwich becomes even more comforting when it is toasted. It also adds a nice texture to the sandwich by making it more crispy.

This is one of the most simple items to order, as any employee will know what you’re asking for by name. If you want to add some extra flavors, you can layer the different cheeses that Subway has to offer, and load it up with your favorite veggies.

The Wing Effect

The last but not the least is one of the most popular Subway Secret Menu hacks among customers. The meat in Subway’s subs is normally tucked underneath itself in order to make sure the sandwich stays intact when it is served, however, this hack allows you to enjoy some extra meat before you devour the whole sandwich.

The easiest way to order this is simply to ask for your sandwich to be served with the wing effect, and most employees will be able to understand what you are saying; if they seem confused, you can always explain what it is.
