I lucked upon Philly Steak Subs while staying in a house 10 miles away. The steak and cheese was so good, I visited it 2 more times during my week vacation, ordering the steak and cheese, with onions (If you don't say "no onions", you will get onions) every time! Dena, the bartender and server, is very friendly and efficient.... More

My husband & I were on spring break in the Outer Banks & came upon this place at lunch time. We both ordered the #2 (cheesesteak w/ grilled onions, tomato, lettuce, & mayo) & an order of onion rings. Everything was delicious & portions generous. We rolled in just before noon. Good thing because the line began to gather behind... More

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.

We were in a hurry & stopped. Ordered a turkey sub to go. I t was prepared in a short time, priced reasonable & was delicious. I couldn't eat it all, so my wife (not a sub fan) finished it & said it was very good! It wasn't busy, but I didn't get any sense of issues that some people... More

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.
