ATLANTIC CITY -- White House Subs reopened Thursday morning with applause and orders for cheesesteaks and Italian submarines.
The famous eatery that first opened in 1946 closed for two months after being flooded during Hurricane Sandy. It reopened for normal business at 10 a.m.
The shop looked as if it were never affected, looking clean with new carpeting and a new soda machine, but the people in line were waiting for the same old thing.
"I was a little girl and used to come here," said Jane Jarvis, of Philadelphia, who came from Bally's to get three subs. "This was a real treat."
Justin Adcock, of Virginia Beach, Va., and Jason Bowman, of Norfolk, Va., were first in line. They stop by whenever they're driving through New Jersey.
"I can't go back without grabbing a few subs," Adcock said. "You can't get a sandwich like this just anywhere."
