I went inside to place a to go order. The staff was talking amongst themselves about paying their bills and boyfriend drama. The girl that took my order didn't seem to mind that I was waiting while she was cursing about how lousy her boyfriend is. The building is a bit run down, but the food was great. I will... More

Everything here is very good. Sandwiches, pizza, and salads. Be warned this is not white table cloth dining, but good good nonetheless. Always crowded at peak time, which lends credence to my opinion. Also, I would suggest take-out and eat at home.

The subs were disappointing and the service was poor. The staff seemed to be having a family feud right in the middle of the restaurant. They were yelling at each other and I think it is family owned. Why don't they wait until they go home to argue. Not at all business like. We will not return.

Have never had anything bad here. Started eating there when it opened years ago. Been ordering via phone for so long their number is in my brain ... don't even need it on speed dial. Their personal pizzas are really great and you can't beat the fried chicken!

If you want excellent food at a reasonable price in the Southport area, you really can't go wrong at this establishment whether you're looking for eat-in or take out. The majority of the tables are basic booths and it is a sit-where-you-want policy when you come in. There are waitresses who come take your order and usually give you the... More

We stopped for dinner and had some really great authentic Italian food. Don't let the exterior fool you. It's worth the stop. Very extensive menu and it was really good.

We visited for a late lunch. We were surprised to find that Famous Subs and Pizza has table service. The other surprise is that they serve fried chicken, and my wife and I both ordered that. The chicken is not cooked KFC style--it's the good stuff. The teen ordered pizza, as usual, and pronounced it to be excellent. Another surprise... More

My husband and I ate at Famous. I ordered the grilled chicken salad and he ordered the lamb gyro. It started off with our server dropping my salad and then picking up my salad off the table and asking me if I wanted her to put them back in the bowl. I told her no thanks. After dropping many ingredients,... More

My husband and I ate dinner here one night and it was excellent. We each had a personal pizza, the perfect size for one person, mine with cheese and his with everything they could possibly fit on it. They were so good. We heard others talking about how good the fried chicken is as well. The prices were good and... More
