The only sandwich I ever get here (I am a vegetarian) is their "Greens" sandwich. It's a sautéed broccoli rabe with sharp cheddar cheese served on a sesame seeded south Jersey Italian roll. It tastes so damned good that I suspect it's simmered in some sort of meat broth but if it is, I don't care to know. I take... More

Wow! Just WOW! I have always been told how awesome this place is, but I finally had a roast beef sandwich craving that need to be satisfied and I wanted something new. I got the Roast Beef with Broccoli Rabe and Sharp Cheddar. I can't even figure out a way to properly describe how amazing this sandwich was. I regularly... More

I had the roast pork and broccoli rabe. Very good. My husband had a cheese steak. He said he liked it but growing up in Claymont Steaks makes it hard to love it.

On the positive side: they roast their own meats and slice to order. There are many sandwich choices on the menu, mostly variations on the same theme - beef, pork or chicken plus the usual "hoagie" choices. Anywhere else they'd be a good place but considering it is Delaware which is woefully stuck in mediocrity, they are way above average.... More

I have had cheese steaks up and down the east coast, the ones from Ioannoni's are definitely the best I have ever eaten. This a sandwich shop with a couple of tables and booths for enjoying your sandwich. Most sandwiches are ordered for take out. The italian sub my wife had was excellent as well. But the cheese steaks will... More

Best cheese steak I've ever had! Beats Pat's and Geno's in Philly hands down! Will stop again! I got a medium and couldn't finish it, it was stuffed with meat!

its always bothersome to see the owner weighing each piece of meat before he puts it on a sandwitch. after making a few you would think he could remember. scarce amounts of meat in all the sandwitches , porkette tastes like a spicy mess almost un eatable without smothering it with greens and sharpe cheese. the subs are 75% bread,...

Both their pork and roast beef are outstanding. I love the roast beef with real horseradish not the sauce! They also have the hot peppers that I apply sparingly. Rolls and Kaiser buns are fresh and soft. I always have left-overs. Seating is sparse (about six tables and three stools along a counter on the wall.

Simply put the best overall sub shop in DE. There are probably other places with a better type of sandwich, but none of the can top the overall consistency across the board...

Great beef and pork sandwiches. cold Subs are outstanding as well. Only downside is it is often crowded and can be hectic. Portions are huge.
