First Look at Mother Ruckers Subs

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. DSC_0002
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!

Except for the two disembodied hands that the sandwich is served in...looks like something out of a halloween party!

I went there this week and just like the previous comment they do give you a lot of meat on the sub. They currently have coupons that you can use same day at the counter that offers a combo (drink and chips) as well as one for $1 off a regular sub.

The staff was very friendly and they live in the neigborhood. Now if they offered a multigrain or wheat roll I'd jump for joy. It will not keep me for going back and making my way through the menu.
