Subway's normal Meatball Marinara sub is a regular on their $5 Dollar Footlong value menu so you're really just getting the extra value of about six wide slices of pepperoni.
Meatball subs are usually pretty messy and Subway's version is no exception so be sure to grab some extra napkins. I was pleasantly surprised at how well Subway's Italian bread held up against the marinara sauce. I've had experience in the past with other meatball subs where the bread absorbs too much of the marinara and becomes a soggy mess in my hands. I thought the marinara might be too sweet or two salty but it was actually pleasant if a bit plainly seasoned.
Overall, I really enjoyed the Meatball Pepperoni but next time I'd forgo the pepperoni and the extra sodium that it brings and get some more cheese (and the extra sodium there) which is good for my wallet (though not for my sodium intake) since the Meatball Pepperoni Sub will only be $5 for so long and the Meatball Marinara is an everyday $5 Footlong.
