Why is this the outrage? To little to late y'all. Downtown was taken over a long time ago. I can't count on two hands any more the places that I loved that are no longer around. Norms was OK food but never good food. The late nights and good times is what I will remember. Don't talk about it as if we are losing a culinary gem, we are losing a cultural gem. BTW the D'Al boys started a restaurant in a part of town that when I was growing up food & Bev people didn't want anything to do with, so im not disappointed by the change in ownership.
I've tried the new place out and it is amazing. Great pizza and hoagies along with great local beers at a reasonable price. Much needed in Charleston. I have been back several times already. Can't say enough good things about it.
sesame seed on a hoagie roll??????????
but, then again, this must be the Chick's Fry House Classic Spin, Lord knows Chick's innovations were well accepted.
Apologies for the incorrect last name spelling. The story has been updated with the proper spelling.
What bs. My uncle never made hoagies it's called subs like the name Norms sub shop. This new place will never be like my uncles. What the new owners did was so dirty. Hell you even spelled HANF wrong. Our family is very hurt and disgusted. Norms name might be gone off the building but it will be forever in everyone's heart. By the way smith street pizza place your on Flippin Calhoun st. Your welcome
How horrible! Norman and Susie HANF live above the shop and you couldn't be bothered to interview the people that had the business for 37 years. It went "quietly" because the new owners told us they didn't want anyone to know they were taking over because they claimed they would keep everything the same. Disrespectful and dishonest people in there now! By the way, You spelled Norman and Susie's last name wrong. I am totally disgusted about how the new people have treated my family. oh and fyi 2000 isn't vintage... the pool table was removed in 2013 because we needed MORE seating not less. Shame on you for not interviewing the LOCALS that started the place and made it an icon.
How'd I miss Thanksgivng this year?! Or maybe we need to correct the verb tense in the last sentence of the 1st paragraph ;)
Sad!! Tried their "hoagies" and it was plain disappointing!! Bread left a lot to be desired and the selection was just like any generic franchised sub place! The rolls and sandwiches that Norms provided were LOCALS favorites!! When will these transplants learn!! I love Normandy farms, but I don't want a freaking "French" baked roll on my AMERICAN style hoagie!! Bring back the true hoagie bread, bologna and variety! The locals may comeback as well! Sad day in the Lowcountry!
But why can't D'Al's have a broader menu up here in their own neighborhood (Cannonborough-Elliotborough)? Darn it if there weren't times that I wanted a good hoagie, or some wings -- like during the Super Bowl -- and none were to be found for delivery nearby or from a local business. I try to support my neighbors and local businesses, but they have to offer what we want.
The duck dish is phenominal
Now this looks great!!!!!

That's a super nice thing to do. Next time I'm I'm in the city I'm going to check out that awesome looking sandwich.
