Today is opening day at Mother Ruckers Subs at 1101 Bladensburg Road. I stopped in with some friends to check the place out. Right now, they are open from 10am-6pm Monday-Saturday. Also, they are cash only (they may get an ATM in the future).
The sandwiches are tasty, and there is no skimping on the ingredients. I tried the Godfather #2 (mortadella, capiricolla, ham, provolone) for $6.50. I went in feeling very hungry, but only made is a little under halfway through my sandwich before I felt stuffed (despite having skipped breakfast). The ingredients are fresh, and everything is made to order.
If you ever visited Sullivan's, you'll be in for a surprise when you see the new space. It's a totally open kitchen, and the bulletproof glass is gone. In fact, the whole place got such a thorough scrubbing and makeover, that I wouldn't have recognized it as the same building from the inside. Right now, they are carryout only, but there is plenty of space for a few tables, and mentioned plans to add some in the future.
No shortage of coldcuts here!
