Some things never change - thankfully!

Anytime I travel north on I-81 I have to stop in Hazleton to visit places I frequented when I was growing up there over 50 years ago. I looked up and saw that the Third Base was still open. I stopped by and bought their cold cut hoagies which I bought 50 years ago. I was so happy - they... read more

On a whim, my wife and I stopped in for a sandwich so she could experience some nostalgia from my high school days--we live in the Baltimore area since 1988. Dave treated us as we were old friends and the sandwiches exceeded our expectations. No flamboyance here, just good food and great service. We both had a sandwich, she had... More

I've tried cold cut hoagies from several places in Hazleton PA. I've come to the conclusion that there's no better regular cold cut hoagie than a Third Base hoagie. The price is right, the bun is delicious and fillings are perfect! We love them. I always order them for take-out. Dave, the guy who owns the place, is delightful and... More

Boring much better choices in area for a cold... More

Visiting the area from New Jersey and because of tripadvisor reviews, we sought out this luncheonette. AWESOME! You may never experience something like this ever again -- so go there! We had Italian subs, and they were great; however it's the atmosphere that really is cool. I felt like I stepped back in time to a mom and pop sub... More

Fresh and delicious hoagies made to order. The quality is excellent, and the luncheonette is very cool if you decide to eat-in. The service is excellent as well.

A little bit of heaven. They're famous for their cold cut hoagies but don't underestimate their steak and cheese. If you want a true Hazleton experience, there's nothing like eating in. Something right out of a 50's movie!!
