New Wave Subs: Back to the Past

My co-workers and I have a monthly lunch trip.  Normally, we go to a nearby Costa Vida.  This week, we decided to try out a newish food place in our area called New Wave Subs.
As we walked over, one of my co-workers was reading off some of the ingredients they put on their subs.  Jokingly I commented 'it sounds like they take meals and put them on bread!'  As we walked in, I almost immediately turned to the right, and saw a big screen TV with Super Mario Bros 3 on it.


Forgive me for my exuberance but that game was one of the big hits from my childhood.  On the wall, they had movie posters from the 80's.  They even had a Galaga arcade machine.  The employees T-shirts from movies too.  One sported a simple 'Star Wars' shirt.  Another had a picture of Darth Vader pointing at Princess Leia saying "Give me some SPACE".  The place was like a blast from the past!  All of the sandwiches had different names that were in reference to various 80's things.  Some examples were The Hulkster, He-man, Joe Montana, Mario Bros, Ferris Beuler's Day Off, The Goonies, etc.  They had a lot of sandwich variety too.  Some of the things they put on sandwiches included breaded mozarella sticks, macaroni and cheese, sliced steak, jalapeno poppers, pastrami, ham, chicken tenders, and bodacious sauce.  I have no idea what bodacious sauce even is.  The one I ended up purchasing had sliced steak, macaroni and cheese, and marinara sauce on it.  It was totally delicious, and very filling.

All in all, it was a great restaurant.  The one drawback to the place would probably be the price.  The sandwich prices ranged from $8 to the most expensive being $14.  The kids meals had prices in the $3 range.  Considering what they put on the sandwiches, I think it's pretty reasonable.

Go ahead and check out their website here: New Wave Subs or go visit them in Riverton, UT at 13322 S. 3600 W. #105.
