The cheesesteak was delicious! Bring cash for the meal and quarters for the parking. We were not prepared. Seriously worth the visit!

Best hoagies in Princeton. They just-do it right. Made to order hoagies and their staff is friendly and quick.. Just be repaired to wait as it gets crowded.....good things come to those who wait.

The hoagies from this place are delicious, but the ordering/ paying process is atrocious. There had to have been about 40 + people in the tiny store this past weekend, in various stages of the process. People from the order line would jump in front of those in the payment line. People in the payment line would bring their friends... More

Don't let the dumpy aesthetics fool you the subs or hoagies range from good to very good! The staff is sharp, quick and have great hearing despite the crowds, noise and high energy. I had a cheese steak, which was not bad, but they do not chop it up like in Philly, while my travel companions tried the body bag... More

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.
