The place has really great food, all homemade and authentic. Great for take-out. The atmosphere in the restaurant could be better, but if you are looking for good, hearty take-out, go here! Great food, nice people, home-made.

I asked for their most popular sandwich, as i'll probably never never be back in this area again. The suggested Buffalo Chicken Chhese Steak lived up to expectations! I had my doubts when they recommended 'hot' spices, but it was perfect! I'd come again. I probably would never bring a date here, as the dining area looks like an old... More

The restaurant itself is very odd. Not the kind of place where you'd want to spend a lot of time, so I suggest getting your food to go when you can. There is a lot of empty space, filled only with two tall tables that look like they have been repurposed from a school or something, & some stools. The... More

It's probably the 3rd most well known place to eat in Plainsboro outside Aljons and Romeos. And as far as sandwich shops go it's pretty awesome. It definitely still has the best buffalo chicken cheesesteak you will ever have. They also have solid soups and other specialty sandwiches like the Chicken Supreme and you basically can't go wrong with their... More

There are better sandwiches a little further afield, but the hoagies here are certainly pretty good. Sure, you can feel your arteries curling up with every bite, but that's kinda the point, I guess. Worth a visit if you're in downtown Plainsboro, but Princeton has a wider - and better - selection.

Nothing really special, except that it's local. The service tends to be slow, the bread not great. The cheesesteak wrap is very good, though.

I've been working in offices nearby S&H for 3 years now and this place is absolutely our favorite lunch place! Hot and cold hoagies are some of the best I've ever had thanks to their amazing bread (crispy flakey outside with a soft fluffy inside yummy!) and their fresh meats. The turkey hoagies are awesome and I also love their... More

This place is right around the corner from where I work. It is no frills and essentially takeout only, there are about 2 tables with 4 stools. We would typically order food from here once a week and get it delivered. The food from this place is good, but very inconsistant, half the time cold. We tolerated this as the... More
