I ordered the pizza cheesesteak with everything. The person making it must not have understood me, because all it had on it was what tasted like steak-um with ketchup. I also ordered some of the chili, which was quite different than i was expecting. It was good and spicy, in a heartburn kind of way.

About a ten minute walk from the front gates of PU, but totally worth it. There was a constant stream of kids, teens, and adults coming in, which is always a good sign. The employees were working hard and filling orders quickly. We had cold subs and a delicious chocolate chip cookie. There was a great variety on the menu.... More

I used to go to Hoagie Haven as a teenager (I'm in my late 40's now). I could swear the prices are the same as they were in the '80s. The hoagies (especially the #1) are classics. It's too bad that there isn't a place inside to sit and eat.

The best place in town for sandwiches and hands down the best place in the world for cheese fries. If you like honey mustard then add that too. Sandwiches I recommend include chicken parm and BLT. This place has been around for decades and has been on national TV numerous times. Enjoy!

I'm a 15 year resident of Princeton and just went back to Hoagie Haven after a long absence. I was reminded tonight why I stay away. This is the most overrated place in town. The sandwiches are poorly made, the service is awful, and in general a substandard experience. Given all of the other excellent options, I just don't get... More

I am sure there are some hoagies here that are delicious because it is mad busy. Our sandwich was one of their specialities "Sanchez" I think and it was tasteless even with the sauce. Pretty disappointing.

The subs at HH are satisfactory, but they always get my order mixed up. Make sure to talk loudly in there while ordering... I do not trust that they have a very good health inspection grade. If you go, get ready for indigestion.

Great cheese steaks with all that great tasting stuff on them that makes a dietician cringe. I don't eat them regulatory but it's a special treat.

I often come for takeout and eat along the street. The hoagies are excellent for the price and the service is usually quick. The bread and ingredients are fresh and tasty.

Don't order a plain cheesesteak, you get a huge roll with one literally one minute maid steak in it. Looks like the meat is a slice of paper. Unbelievable, even Wawa has this place beat and Wawa doesn't even have a grill. They should be ashamed to sell a totally pathetic cheesesteak with one slice of meat. Should have cost... More
