Been going to the Subway for 40 years and it never changes, in the best way possible. No wonder it won best pizza in the local paper's recent contest. Also love the lasagna and chicken park.

Many, many years ago the Subway Cafe was THE place to go for pizza. Our foursome had lunch here yesterday and we were disappointed. Our two friends had personal pizzas. The crust was far too thin and burned around the edges. The sauce had a sweet taste and the additional topping portions for which you pay extra were not generous.... More

This place has been around almost forever. Tiny and kind of shabby looking but once inside you will enter a world that seems to be the same as it was years ago. Scott behind the bar will say hello when you enter and the food will surprise you. The pizza is the star here.....outstanding crisp crust..great sauce and decent toppings.... More

Was new to this place this year and have been there twice in the past month. It's small but a great local watering hole with good food. The pizza is different due to the cracker type crust but the sauce and cheese really make up for it. Happened to hit it on a Friday night and got the lasagna special... More

Based on all of the rave reviews we have read in our local paper (they won the Hbg pizza contest), my husband and I were anxious to try this little restaurant. It is a small, neighborhood style bar/restaurant. Friendly staff. The pizza is a bit unique but neither of us thought it was great. I had the spaghetti - it... More

We arrived to find the perfect neighborhood café. What a great feel. You can feel all 66 years. Our server was a great marketing person for the restaurant and she was rightfully very proud of the place. She helped guide us in the ordering process since it was our first visit. 1 White Spicy Chicken Pizza with feta added and... More

This is a family owned Italian restaurant that has been around since 1948. This is not :Jared’s sandwich chain. I have been hearing the buzz that a local newspaper took an “expert’s poll” on who makes the best pizza in Harrisburg”. They concluded that Subway was the best. We headed over there to find out. I had the Lasagna special... More

Subway is consistently good--I have been coming here for almost 25 years and the quality of the pizza, pasta and fish bowls/goblets of beer have not wavered. The staff is always friendly too. One of the coziest decors if you love broken in retro booths, close tables, in a very small space. The Manhattans are large, cold and are the... More
