Today is National Hoagie Day, which means it's the perfect day to go to one of the many local places here in Bozeman and grab a fantastic hoagie sandwich for lunch or dinner, but what exactly is considered a hoagie?

Great question, because according to the internet, there seems to be some confusion.

According to, "A hoagie is a bread roll sandwich piled high with deli meats, cheese, fixings, and dressing, and is usually at least six inches long. The term ‘hoagie’ is most commonly used in Philadelphia and South Jersey."
