Start with high-quality ingredients—Metro Deli meats and cheese, hand-picked vegetables fresh from the market, and Mom’s heritage recipes. You just know that eating at Scooby’s Subs will be a Wow! Experience. Owner Terry Angelotti asserts, “I don’t take any credit at all. It’s hard to mess things up when you have such good food to begin with.” Sandwiches brim over with delectable toppings: colorful peppers and olives; fresh lettuce and tomatoes; all anchored by the highest quality meats and cheeses available.
The Nuclear, a bestseller, is a classic Italian sub. The Torpedo—either chicken or tuna salad— is another crowd favorite. “All of the salads and soups come from my mom’s recipes,” Terry says with pride. Homemade soup options change daily and varieties include New England clam chowder, split pea and tomato bisque made from Mom’s self-canned tomatoes.
Scooby’s Subs and its sister shop, Old School Ice Cream, is run by Terry and his wife Beverly. The sub shop has a submarine-themed décor that includes an undersea mural, authentic submarine parts (including a Russian submarine clock) and a clean, bright look that evokes the freshness of its food.
A few steps away, Old School Ice Cream has a one-room schoolhouse theme with desks, school bells, lunch pails, vintage readers and textbooks, all purchased in Marion County. Photos of happy, ice cream-eating customers decorate the space. Beverly proudly serves Blue Bell ice cream in her sundaes, malts, banana splits, waffle cones, hand-spun milkshakes and Dole Whip in two flavors and soft serve.
