Man, it feels like it’s been awhile since we have done a regular review. We had fun doing our second season of Pizza Wars. But we will be taking a break from pizza for a bit.

While we are eagerly waiting for the weather to turn so we can be outside, our lives seem to be busy most nights. Luckily for us, we had a fundraiser coupon for hoagies from DiNunzio’s, and we were able to not have to worry about a meal for one day.

Located in the strip plaza at the corner of 8th and Poplar streets in Lebanon, DiNunzio’s offers a menu of 16 hoagie sandwiches. They do have inside seating, but it seems most business is takeout.

Our selections today were the #1, Sharp Dressed Italian. This hoagie includes prosciutto, capicola, genoa salami, ages sharp provolone, and hot peppers on a fresh soft roll with oil & spices ($10.25). Our second hoagie was the #5, The Spicy Nunzi. Peppered turkey, genoa salami, hot capicola, hot pepper cheese, and roasted peppers on a fresh soft roll with oil & spices ($10.25).

#1, Sharp Dressed Italian.

The hoagies are composed well. The #1 was a solid choice for those not wanting to spice it up. One critic thought the soft rolls were still hard but the other didn’t think so. The spicy Nunzi had good flavor and spice throughout. Each hoagie was one were we could easily taste all the flavors together.

#5, the Spicy Nunzi.

Our take: DiNunzio’s offers a good size hoagie with good quality deli meat. The hoagie holds together perfectly, and everything stays on the roll. They provide a good balance of each ingredient to allow you to taste each part of the hoagie. Add peppers to your sandwich, you’ll be glad you did, especially the roasted red peppers.

We give this place 🥓🥓🥓🥓.

Be on the lookout as we will be visiting a few more Valley establishments and getting ready for our next “Wars” series. What should it be? Let us know what you think.
