This place is loud and crowded and while not dirty certainly messy. That said we went with 6 people everyone's food was fantastic. LOVED the pizza

We had large cheese steak subs and salad. They offer all the fixings you could choose for a sub and they come with a few chips. Fries and onion rings were extra sides. Salad choices included Greek which includes feta cheese, olives,etc. All served promptly at correct temperature with ample portions. Delicious. Recommended for lunch or dinner.

I discovered this place in 1990. Every Time I come to southport, it is a must visit. I love their pizza. My friend's favorite is the fried chicken. The restaurant is showing some age, but the pizza is great. I will continue my tradition, hopefully for another 25 years!

We have stopped here the last couple years. We went last night and the pizza was great. My manicotti was burnt so they took it off the bill. It was okay since the pizza was great.

All of it is good. The place is casual and pretty crowded at times. Ambiance is not fancy but very clean ( looks like it used to be... More

The only reason we eat here from time to time is their chicken...they deep fry it (without breading) so it's super crispy outside while tender inside. It is pretty pricey though but that's why it's a treat.

I recently moved to Southport. I had a craving for fried chicken. Looked up online and it seemed Famous Subs was the place. They do make it fresh, I'll give them that. The chicken did have a non greasy, crispy coating but no flavor. The fries were limp. And again, no flavor. Very bland. Guess next time I'll try Bo... More
