More of a bar than a sub shop but a decent cheesesteak. Good roll. There's nothing like a cheesesteak from Philadelphis but this was good.

A very nice laid back place to hang out, have a beer and a sandwich. I was there on a Friday nigh and they were setting up a DJ or bang, so it may get loud in there later in the evening.

One of my ultimate favorites is called the Fat Walt, it is loaded with mushrooms, cheese, meat, bacon, and flavor. I've had other cheesesteaks from various places, including the popular... More
