I might cry for this one.

According to a report from WHDH, Santoro's Sub-Villa on Route 1 in Saugus is closing for good next month.

Santoro's posted the news on their Facebook page:

Although it's sad that they are closing, I do like the sentiment in that post.  The report from WHDH quotes the owners Rich and Rob Santoro:

We are the third generation of the family, and there is no fourth generation. Neither of us has kids,” Rob told the newspaper. “It’s time we started to enjoy life.

Santoro's opened it's doors in 1954 when subs were being sold for just .25 cents.

Their menu has many favorites, but mine, by far is the eggplant parm.  Second, their tuna sub.  I've tried to duplicate it, but to no avail.

We have about a month left to go to Santoro's, so it gives us time to beg them not to go.  OR, maybe they'll start to give out their recipe secrets now that they're retiring!  It's worth a shot!

We'll miss you, Santoro's.  Hope you open up a small sandwich shop in your retirement home, wherever that may be!
