No longer operating under this business name
Open 3 months under new owner, Bill Economou, WilJax Famous Hoagies & Sandwiches is more than their name. Homemade is the key to their hoagies, sandwiches, burgers, meatballs, soups, chili, roast pork and wings. Economou who has worked in various roles in the food industry, credits his talents to the many people he has crossed paths with during his career. Developing his menu from all these experiences as well as testing out his new creations on his staff.
GFNJ had the opportunity to meet with the WilJax owner and sample some of his menu. The first day we started out with his homemade chili. An excellent interpretation of a classic, a hearty blend of ingredients that left you asking for more! The soup of the day, Chicken Noodle, large noodles, nice sized chunks of flavorful chicken in a terrific broth, a great fall belly warmer and a meal by itself.
Sampling three hoagies, The Mama Bear, Mild Italian and the Buster Billy, all stuffed with fresh sliced meat on a terrific roll. Our favorite the Mama Bear, turkey and Swiss, the addition of Russian dressing and coleslaw took it over the top!
WilJax wings, all with homemade sauces that you can also purchase on their own. We had the mild which had blue cheese dressing incorporated in the sauce. Great dipping for the crisp wings. The only question, when will WilJax start their own line of sauces?
Homemade is easily recognized in their burgers. The 80/20 mix burger huge flavor that was seared in during the cooking process. On a super fresh roll, we had with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle. A two-handed effort was needed to take on this half pounder.
WilJax also does Corporate accounts catering. Go to : http://www.wiljaxsandwiches.com to check out that menu.
Fresh quality homemade food WilJax covers it all and is not your ordinary sandwich shop. “If you can’t close the lid you made it right” the mantra of WilJax meaning you get a TON of great tasting food with every order. Check them out once and you will never want to go anywhere else.
