Dave’s Cosmic Subs is one of three sub shops on Coventry Road in Cleveland Heights. It has the most unique interior of the three, and the sandwiches are pretty good. In all honesty I am not sure I can declare a favorite of the three because I like different features of each sandwich. For this review I will stick to Dave’s.
My favorite is the Sloppy Dave (pictured above), it has plenty of cheese and meat as well as a generous amount of “Dave’s Special Sauce” which is their own brand of italian dressing. The sandwich itself is slightly spicy and goes well with the crunchy roll. My only complaint is that it can be hard to eat because of it’s construction. The lettuce is placed first, then the meat and last but not least are the cheese and peppers. Ben’s favorite sandwich is the Haight Ashbury (vegetarian sandwich) with marinated tomatoes.
For kids they offer simple sandwiches with just meat and cheese, and nothing else. Jonathan likes the ham and cheese, but more often than not picks the ham and cheese out of the sandwich because he is not a fan of crusty bread. We would recommend that you give Dave’s a try if you like subs and happen to be near one of their Cleveland area locations at lunch time.
