Fantastic food!

Ok, the bad first... The ONLY reason I'm not giving this place 5 stars is because of what a previous reviewer mentioned. I too called multiple times before just going there and ordering and waiting for it (which the wait was remarkably fast so it didn't much matter). While waiting on the phone, I'm... read more

Would have loved to eat here, but after 20 minutes of waiting for the phone to be picked up we gave up and called to order from somewhere else. The menu looked great. It's unfortunate that we were even able to try it. Not sure how you can claim to be a take out place if you don't answer the... More

This place is ace. Sandwiches were freshly prepared,meg nervous and tasty. Onion rings were top as were the Ranch fries. Guys are all very friendly and super speedy. Sooooooo much better than the Subway on the other side if the car park. Highly recommended.

Went there for lunch after golfing. The sub was very good and the fries were excellent! We have eaten here the two times we stayed in Corolla.

Generous portion sizes and right up a true Philly cheesestake experience. Fries were excellent with a great seasoning. Good sports atmosphere inside if you summer in. Plenty of beer choices too if you are looking for a child beverage with your sandwich.

I lived and worked in the Philly area, and don't often find "Philly" cheese steaks out of the Philly area that I like, this is an exception. Service is a little brisk, but it just makes it more like Philly. They use Amoroso rolls, which are common in the Philly area. Basically, they do the cheese steak right, which is... More

Rockin good Philly cheesesteaks and fries. Son loves the Ranch fries. We make a point to stop every year when we visit OBX, wouldn't miss it. Be warned that this place gets slammed during lunch hours.

A bit harsh. The place is geared to Philadelphia Eagles, Phillies and 76ers fans. If you understand the mentality of the Philly fan, this is the place you need to be. Otherwise, its a dark uncomfortable place to be. I am a sports fan and I could have stayed home for the sports experience. Food was average.
