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

A group of 6 went in and this place only has booths and 2 small tables. We all squeezed into a booth, which to give credit was bigger than average but still a little cramped. Waitress was on the spot from beginning to end. Friendly and hard working. The cheese sticks were over cooked and the marinara sauce did not... More

Really enjoyed my pizza. We got a medium pizza which was really tasty. Expect to pay a little more than at the main chains, and the ordering situation is a little confusing, (order at the register or at the table) but the staff was very helpful. Very local crowd in there for lunch on a Saturday, which usually indicates that... More

I lived in Southport four years and finally tried this restaurant. A very pleasant surprise. Really a local dinner kind of place. Very clean and staff is good. Order at counter and they bring dishes to your table. Tried the Gyros platter and it was excellent. Friends tried a Greek salad, steak and peppers sub and veggie sub. We all... More

The crust on my pizza was slightly thick with a crispy crust. The ingredients were fresh and very flavorful. We eat a lot of pizza and were quite pleased with Famous'.

The pizza was awesome. Trying to get someone to wait on you outside the window, not so much. The food is worth the wait though. As long as your not looking at service and just something quick to eat, this place has it. I love their pizza!

I have eat there many times over the years for their manicotti. But today was horrible. The waitresses were apparently fighting and I find that unacceptable. No hellos, no smiles and poor service. I left a tip and wish I had not. The manicotti was not good this time. Too much peppery taste and dry. I sure hope management reads... More
