Cheeseburger Sub

We've eaten at the Famous many times and the food is always very good. This time my husband tried a cheeseburger sub and it was one of the best subs he has had in a long time. They do offer delivery to local hotels which is terrific after a long day at the beach!

Great food. Fast paced and busy. Great for families on the go. Cranberry chicken salad is excellent.

We were recently in Chincoteague and visited Famous quite a few times for take out. The employees are super friendly and super helpful. They went above and beyond questioning our order and if we wanted any changes or ketchup, mustard, etc. to go with it. Everything was ready when we got there and it was all delicious. Would definitely go... More

We ordered two large pizzas from Famous Pizza for dinner. We had ordered from them in the past and were blown away by how good they were! However, this time they truly were average. The sauce, cheese, and toppings were fine. The crust was definitely a frozen crust. That was a huge disappointment. And the price was pretty steep for... More

Hey, if you are looking for a standard pizza joint this is it! However, there are some things to definitely order and things to not order. Notice, the winds are breaded with buffalo sauce on the side--they are seasoned well! Dressings are individually packaged except the in-house made Greek--get that! Pizza is great; subs, not so much. Dinners are hearty.... More

Ate dinner here after hearing it had the best pizza on the island. Not sure what the other pizza places have to offer but the pizza here was awful, I have had better pizza frozen out of a box. The restaurant was dirty and filled with flies as well as ants. Our family will definitely be back to chincoteague but... More

Other reviewers must have low standards. This was the dirtiest place we came across on our road trip. We went because of the good reviews but there are much better pizza and sub places on the island. Staff was rude and short. Flies everywhere. Dingy and hot! Food was gross.. Subs were made with cheap meat and turn have no... More

If you want a good old fashioned pizza baked to perfection...minus all the grease and fake, rubbery cheese you typically get...then this place is a must! We love this place so much that we ended up eating there a couple time during our week stay. Definitely a nice way to end a great day at the beach.

Visited Famous Pizza this weekend after hearing how good it was. It wasn't great but wasn't terrible either. Had a good taste. The crust was decent. Pepperoni a were good. Overall, would go back.
