Great Heroes (subs)

Probably the best quick meal in town. Large subs that are always delicious. It is open very late and highly popular for a reason.

Very popular with the high school and college students. Great hoagies, good prices. Take out only since there are no places to eat inside. Outside you can eat on benches, which we see many kids do.

Prices are reasonable, food is great and service is fast. Very limited seating inside (only a counter) but plenty of places outside to sit and enjoy your meal.

I love everything about Hoagie Haven, which is a kind of hole in the wall place, which makes a great variety of hoagies, including my favorite, roast beef with provolone and the works, including hot peppers and onions! The souvlaki and gyro sandwiches alone, are worth a visit.

It's always busy and the ordering process often feels a bit chaotic and not always friendly (reminds me a little of the "no soup for you" Seinfeld episode) but the subs are the best in the area so we keep going back.

My wife found this place on Urban Spoon, we walked down Nassau St and found it had a line almost out the door. We waited our turn and I'm glad we did. Home baked bread was amazing, steak and sauce drizzled were out of this world. Best I've had. Prices were reasonable and the choices plentiful. Highly recommend stopping here... More

Great place. Good food with great prices. Super friendly staff. Not a lot of seating inside but there are benches outside the door. They let me borrow electric to charge my phone. If my son decides to attend Princeton, we will definitely be back!

Hoagie Haven is the ultimate college and NJ sandwich shop for subs/hoagies. Princeton students love it and it's a great lunch stop for anyone. The hoagies are big are prices far less than I see anywhere else in NJ for the same size of hoagie. It's very bare bones with virtually no seating area, but on a good day, you... More

Maybe I'm getting old and maybe I've gotten healthy, but I do know when food is prepared with care and a little bit of creativity, when ingredients are fresh and of superior quality--and few, if any of these things are true of Hoagie Haven. The truth is I want to like this place, but I can't. My students live for... More

Hoagie Haven is just what it sounds like. They make excellent hoagies (or "grinders if you are from Philly) of a great variety. The place is usually crowded with students but the line moves quickly. Princeton students in the class of 2008 were so enamored of the place that they voted to make the owner an honorary classmate. Now, that... More
