I have been going to the White House since 1970. It was the best place to get sandwiches on the planet. I moved to Florida in '96 but had to move back to the Philly area picking Jersey to live. This was in May '21....I know the COVID changed things but never did I imagine that the White House would change. Most of the sandwiches are great still but not all. I ordered an Italian Hoagie and was asked if I wanted lettuce, tomato and onion on the sandwich. That is insane!. I bought a sausage pepper and onion sandwich but It lac ked in the peppers and onions. The sandwich had sausage cut in half and it appeared to be grilled. That is not the White House I am used too, I want it back!!!!!!More

I arrived at this store at 10 a.m. yesterday. After waiting a while, I finished the order and waited for the order to come out. But my order didn't come out even though the orders of the people waiting in front of me were completed...and the orders of the people who arrived behind me were completed. I complained several times to the counter, but Lady said had to wait longer, saying that the order had not been issued yet. I ended up eating the sandwich that I ordered in an hour. However, the sandwich that I waited for so long was too salty to eat. I don't understand how this place became a good restaurant. The service is also unfriendly. I can't recommend it.More

We have been eating here for years. This is our first stop when in A.C. The amount of meat that is put on the sandwich is insane! They were so helpful as we were also ordering subs to take back home for our 83 yrs...old parents who LOVES their subs. They got it ready for our plane trip and it went through TSA just fine! Just thinking of that place make my mouth water!More

This place is an Atlantic City institution. There are lines every day outside this location and their Hard Rock location, and for good reason; the sandwiches are incredible. The meat, the crispy bread, the price...everything about this place is perfect.

Sandwiches were everything I’ve read about and more. Had half White House special and couldn’t finish it. Bread was amazing. Son had the same with similar reviews. Ordered online and it was ready when they said it would be.

Not in a great area...waiting by the corner takeout window and getting a waft of stale urine can dull the moment, but I've been waiting to try a White House Sub ever since I watched Andrew Zimmern's Bizarre Food Delicious Destinations Jersey Shore. It did...not disappoint. It had all you needed from a quality sandwich: great bread, fresh meats and ingredients, and the whole sub (around $18) is a mammoth sub! Go for the White House Special and get all of the fixings; you won't be disappointed.More

I would go if possible before 11:00 am and after 2:00 pm. It’s very busy at lunchtime…. and understandably so !!

You can order a sub anyway you want it, but the 1/2 has to be the same. You'd have to order 1/2 turkey sub and another 1/2 ham sub. Or order a 1/2 turkey & ham sub. They sell their subs in 1/2 and whole.
