History

About Lou's Sub Shop: Deli in Bound Brook, NJ

Pre-1966
Lou (Jim’s father) owned a barber shop on Main Street in Bound Brook directly across the street from where Lou’s Eatery & Sub Shop currently resides.

1966
Lou bought a small sandwich shop, Bea’s Sub Shop, across the street from his barber shop.

Persistence is Key
Lou’s Eatery & Sub Shop has survived 6 floods:

  • 1971 – Hurricane Doria
  • 1996 (torrential rain)
  • 1999 – Hurricane Floyd
  • 2007 (torrential rain)
  • 2010 (torrential rain)
  • 2011 (torrential rain)

After each incident we upgraded the appearance and menu to serve the changing economy and food choices of our patrons.

2014 is a banner year for us changing our logo for the first time in 37 years as we look forward to the continued re-growth of the Bound Brook area.

All that said…never forgetting where we came from…the sub receipts are still Lou’s…
