Big Town Hero, newly opened in your neighborly Hillsboro community, has a reputation for outstanding submarine-style sandwiches. “Our mission is to provide customers with the finest ingredients. Fresh, local, no artificial ingredients! That’s Big Town Hero!”

Big Town Hero’s owner, Andres Radilla, is pretty impressive. The 23-year-old Latino entrepreneur now manages two Big Town Hero franchises — he purchased the Gresham franchise in January 2021 and the Hillsboro franchise in 2023. Both venues are family-operated and Andres splits his time between them as needed. At Big Town Hero, Andres can often be found focusing his efforts on the catering orders. His “hands-on” approach guarantees the high standards and fresh quality that Big Town Hero promises.

But what exactly is a “hero” sandwich? A hero sandwich, distinctive for its “premier quality,” originated in Italian communities and was intended to be large enough to share with family and friends. These sandwiches consist of only the freshest ingredients served on handcrafted bread that is made from scratch each day in the in-store bakery. At Big Town Hero, you can order online, in the store or through a third party service. Walk-in ordering, in addition to carry-out service, gives you the added option of dine-in seating at one of their cozy tables or booths.

Menu choices are numerous and varied, so be prepared to have your taste buds tantalized. Paninis, classic heroes, hot subs, signature heroes, salads, sides, and drinks, as well as kids meals are offered. Try the Classic Club, a popular favorite filled with turkey, ham, bacon, cheddar and Swiss cheese plus all the fixings. Add a fountain drink and choice of chips, potato salad, or macaroni salad — and make it a meal. Other fresh, mouth-watering ingredients used in paninis, heroes, and subs include roast beef, pepperoni, salami, tuna, and meatball, along with fresh tomatoes, bell pepper, avocado, romaine lettuce, pickles, cucumbers and onions. Yum!
