How ‘Bout A Hoagie at 13th and Jackson is now closed

If you walk past the corner of 13th and Jackson, you might have noticed this hoagie shop, How ‘Bout A Hoagie. Well, now it’s closed.


We had high hopes for ‘Bout A Hoagie when it opened less than a year ago. Eater said in September that the menu, which consisted of breakfast, sandwiches, ice cream, and of course, hoagies, included some notable highlights:

The chicken cutlet Popeye sandwich rivals Shank’s legendary Italiano in terms of quality, and the Cordon Bleu adds tavern ham and swiss to the cutlet which is slathered in bleu cheese. The best part of the deal is the price: $6.25 for a large hoagie.

So, why did it close down?


We’re not. The entire inside is currently vacant and the phone number is out of service. Suppose that means they went out of business, huh? Anyone hear why?

    Apparently, you didn’t miss them that much. They have been closed for at least two or three months.

    Maybe because it was a horrible name for a business.

    There are so many places just like this in the neighborhood. It’s tough to compete if you don’t do something to distinguish yourself.
