A Little Trip to France

I love this place. The chef is a French native and was once the executive chef of the famous NYC restaurant Les Halles (Anthony Bourdain's old haunt) - he was even a champion on a recent episode of "Chopped".

Still one of the best hoagies in the Valley. Good meat and cheese, big variety and great value for your money. Great wings! I do miss their pizza, a lot.

On our way home from Upper Eddy to Ohio. Needed to stop for lunch. Was a little off route. Checked Trip Advisor, others recommend highly. Looking for a Philadelphia Steak sandwich before going home. Sandwiches & wings where great. Responsibly priced. Bread was fresh😀. Drinks sold in bottles. Ladies behind the counter very friendly. Small eating area about 16 tables.... More

Absolutely delicious! It's quick and simple place, but the nicest people who work there. Very fair prices for the quality of the food. Nice little neighborhood place.

Tiny place, the kind of place only the locals usually know about but word has spread and for good reason, they offer the BEST CHEESESTEAKS EVER!!! I can honestly say I compare all other cheesesteaks to Philly Subs and so far no one else has come close. If in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. head to Northampton Street and have a cheesesteak you... More

They pile on the meat and toppngs and the rolls are super fresh! The staff have not changed in ten years, that speaks volumes! Every time my Air Force child comes to... More

I retract my last review and apologize to the owners of Philadelphia Subs, I had them confused with Philly subs in Plains W.B. I went there yesterday for lunch and the steak sandwich was very good. The service was great and the people very friendly and polite. As I sat at a table eating I noticed a waitress walk by... More

Only if you like a lot of grease, I'm originally from Philadelphia and was looking for a good cheesesteak and I was told by a co-worker that these are as good as a REAL Philly steak. No way. I sat in my car and unwrapped it and the grease was dripping out. I then took a bite and my lap... More
