Great Pizza

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.

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!

Love this place. My favorite pizza in the area. Clearly a hand tossed pizza with tasty toppings. Beside pizza they have good burgers, excellent subs, nice salads, Italian entrees and fried chicken. 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

Great Fried Chicken, some of the best I have ever eaten. The subs are really good to. Fresh, fast and delicious. The fried chicken is crisp and juicy.

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!
