Hoboken Blimpie Subs & Salads

Blimpie Base moving to 14th Street in Hoboken, NJ

Retail news used to be exciting for us. Today, it’s just a “shrug.” Like how Blimpie Base is moving from downtown Hoboken to uptown Hoboken. 14th & Willow to be more precise.

Blimpie subs for us – as we mentioned in an earlier post about eating sandwiches – is like forbidden pornography for your mouth.

I will not argue that the “act” of eating a Blimpie or other kind of sandwich is pleasurable. For however many minutes (10, tops?). But the pain afterward (mostly due to the white flour-based bread) is not worth the divine pleasure of biting, chewing and swallowing. It’s like KNOWING you’ll get a dreadful STD after some great sex. Decisions, decisions.

And as you downgrade your bread(s) to multi-grain, or even worse, gluten-free – it becomes like fat-chick porn. Seriously not worth it AT ALL EVER.

Better off taking all the ingredients from the sandwich and eating it as a chef’s salad or something. Throw an avocado in there and some extra sea salt, oil and vinegar to make it great.

Well – at least many uptown residents will soon have this vice within walking distance. If anyone even knows what that means anymore.

Congrats to Blimpie on their fancy relocation.

Hoboken Blimpie relocates 2017

It all started back in 1964. Tony Conza and two high school friends had $2,500 in borrowed money and a simple idea – make sandwiches the way you would at home. Choose only the finest quality meats, cheeses, and toppings, and pile them high while the customer waits for a fresh, tasty, satisfying sandwich. All they needed was a name. They wanted to call their sandwiches something other than subs or hoagies – to set them apart from the others. So they started going through the dictionary until they came to the word “blimp.”

Description: Fast Food chain featuring hot & cold subs. This restaurant is considered to be the first of the Blimpie franchise. (However, it has moved from its original location in Hoboken.)

The blimpie base of Hoboken has fallen the staff is rude the most customers are drunk after the bars close n really don’t care about good fast food the amount has gone down to nothing . I was honored to have eaten in the very first blimpie base n in Hoboken. And don’t trying calling the owner he don’t are as long as he is making in money. Unfortunately this is a common situation in Hoboken please demand to be treated like a good customer that u are

Yes, the quality of the meat has declined.

Even with so many good Italian deli’s in town, every once in a while I like a sandwich on soft bread and I like the rolls here. My only complaint is that I wish they had quality premium meat, like Virgina Ham or Maple Glazed Ham versus the plain “Boiled Ham”.

I remember when the first opened in 1964,they were located on the corner of 7th and washington. I would stop in there on sunday night on the way back to ft.dix and the manager,his name was frank ingram, would give me a bag full heros to bring to ft dix. they were good then but now they are tasteless and just suck.
