Great Subs

While going to the Lighthouse we stopped in for Philly Sub. Sub was great as well as the cheese fries. If your a traveler you have to try CheerWine soda.

As someone that relocated from the Philly area and consumed many variations of the Cheese Steak, this place rates as one of the best. Lots of meat, lots of cheese, and great bread. Great family place an you will not leave hungry. Locals love it.

Great subs. Lots of options. Busy in season but worth it. Better than Subway cheese steak. Not open in off season.

Title says it all, this Philly cheese steak is the real deal. Tender, juicy and delicious, I highly recommend this place, and will definitely plan on returning If I'm ever in the area again.

I really enjoyed the Philly steak sandwich I ordered, a large. Go with the 6" next time. And DO BELIEVE their message on the menu that their small fries are bigger than most places' large orders! My mistake was not listening or asking questions!

We found this place a few years ago and try to go each time we are at OBX. The service is fast and the sandwiches are awesome. Glad we found this place.

I'm no Philly cheese steak expert, but I have to say my wife and I loved our pepper cheese steaks. And the basket of fries were very good. Very crunchy fries, but not burnt. We dined in, by I saw enough people come in to pick up carryout that would lead me to believe this is a popular place to... More

The service was amazing, quick and pleasant. Delicious steaks with caramelized onions straight from the grill, wrapped in a fresh Amoroso's roll. Beer battered onion rings completed this meal and made it even more unforgettable.
