“All I can say is... JUNK YARD!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

It's primarily for takeout though there are a few cafeteria style tables if you want to eat in. Even though it's right off of Ridge Pike, it's not the easiest place to find. It's a small store, located on the side, of a larger building with I think is a lighting store of some type. But once you find it the first time, when you go back again it won't be a problem to find it!
No I am not disparaging Sonny's with my title... that is the name of the BEST sandwich there. They start with the famous bread from a bakery on 9th street in Philly (or so I believe) but either way the bread is amazing. Then they add Turkey, Prosciutto, Sauteed Spinach (which I generally ditch!), Red Roasted Peppers, Sharp Provolone Cheese, Fresh Mozzarella, oil, vinegar, spices, etc. It is a BIG sandwich, comes in regular, big, and HUGE though it's not a cheap sandwich so buy what you think you can it. Again, the rolls are great but big so it will fill you up. They have a bunch of other sandwiches, deli meats, etc but I only ever go for the Junk Yard. Trust me, it's good and worth the trip.

“Great south philly sandwiches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2011

We have gotten take out from Sonny's for many many years now and the bread is what makes the difference. If you want real south Philly chewy crunchy bread then this is just about the only place in that area you will get it. They get their bread from sarcones in Philly. The other thing that makes a difference is the meats and cheeses used. They make a great chicken cutlet and spinach sandwich. They have a couple of seats inside but pretty much are a take out restaurant.

We are lucky to have one of the best Hoagie shops out here in the burbs! Love the bread and the chunks of sharp provolone on the hoagies!
