You are really not living unless you get yourself a footlong sandwich from Subway. While this may seem greedy to some, eating one of those bad boys will keep you full for a week or longer.

Above was my bad attempt at humor. The truth is, anytime I get a footlong, I have to resort to throwing the leftovers in the fridge and keep it ready for later. Once it’s in the fridge, you know that that at some point in time, it is going to need to be reheated and warmed up.  So I have some amount of experience when it comes to that.

If you landed on this page, then you are probably are looking for how to reheat Subway sandwiches. Down below I will highlight some of the best options around and will have you eating your sub the way it was meant to be eaten.

Best Bet is the Oven!

If you want to enjoy a warmed up Subway sandwich, then the oven/toaster oven is by far your best option. While it is not the quickest way to reheat things, it can definitely heat it up to almost perfect levels.

Subway Hot Sandwiches

If you had any of the hot sandwiches from Subway that needed reheating, then warming them up is actually pretty quick and easy.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Place sandwich on baking sheet and heat up for 10-15 minutes. Be sure to check to ensure that it is fully heated all the way through.
  • Take out and enjoy.

Subway Sandwiches With Cold Cuts/Veggies

Sandwiches that have cold cuts or vegetables require a bit more work when it comes to warming them. This is because hot veggies are yuck and the same can be said of certain cold cuts. There is still a work around, but it will require a bit more effort.


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Open sub and take out lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and cold cuts.
  • Try and scrape off as much of the condiments as possible.
  • Place bread in the oven for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Check to make sure your bread is warmed up properly and also to ensure it is not getting too crispy.
  • Assemble the sandwich back together and feast!

Only Use the Microwave If You’re About to Die of Hunger!

Hopefully my message reaches you loud and clear. Under no circumstances should you reheat a subway sandwich in a microwave unless you are about to die of hunger. That is the only time you should use it…..Thank You!

The reason why I had to get so extreme with my message about no microwaves is that bread and microwaves are a bad mix.  If you do decide to throw your sub sandwich in the nuke, best believe it is going to come out soggy and just straight up disgusting. You are not going to enjoy your meal and it would be a total waste in my opinion. So stick with oven, you will not regret it if you do.
