“Fresh cut French fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013 via mobile

Fresh potatoes made to order cut into nice crispy small fries. Way better than subway. Love every sandwhich I have tried. Will take awhile to get your food as its made fresh.

“Nothing exciting - Just average”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I thought I would try this place hoping that there was something different and astronomical. It's just a sub shop but nonetheless, I've never eaten at one of the Penn Station places. Just average, nothing impressive and probably more disappointing than anything else. The choices were just the run-of-the-mill subs and pretty much everything that I could get at a Subway and have MANY choices of breads/rolls and toppings.

It took WAY too long for my order. The fries were kind of soggy and barely tolerable. If there was a manager around, his/her presence was not there that I could see... given the whole situation.

Between Jersey MIkes, Subway and Penn Station, the choices are best at Subway and prices are cheaper at Subway.

Nice atmosphere, but didn't matter with the so-so food and slow service.
