Description: The Hornets Nest is a local landmark in town and is now celebrating over 40 great years. We first became famous for our cheese steak subs, and we still make them the same "original" way. We use only the highest quality beef loins and hand cut them fresh. We fresh bake our own sub rolls. In addition, we also cook our own choice roast-beef and bake our own turkey breasts for sandwiches. We have a large assortment of fresh salads using only romaine lettuce and the freshest produce. We make Italian hand tossed pizza & calzones. we make our own dough and sauce here on the premises and use only the highest quality cheese. We make our own fresh chicken cutlets, meatballs, chicken salad, marinated steak and chicken tips and have a large variety of signature wraps and sandwiches. We know there are a lot of choices where you eat but we think you will agree how different we are from other sub & pizza shops. Thank you for your patronage.

“Small shop with awful pizza”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2012

This is a small little pizza and sub shop by the high school in north reading. If I ever go back there I will not get the pizza. This is the worst pizza I've ever had. I've seriously had frozen pizzas cook at home that were much better than this. My neighbors tell me the subs are pretty good, but I can say first hand and the pizza is disgusting.

our pizza is Italian Hand Tossed Pizza. We make our own dough and sauce fresh here on the premise. We use only the highest quality cheese available. you may have gotten a slice that was left in the pizza warmer too long. your pizza experience is a rare exception and not typical. we are told on a daily basis that we have the "Best" Pizza in town by many many people. i wish you had told us while you were here you were not satisfied. we would have made you a fresh slice. Please come try us again. i assure you, you will not be disappointed. Very Sincerely, Laura

“VERY GOOD”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

They have very good subs here and the price is fair. They have been here for a long time and do a real good job. Not the best I ever had but real good.
