Description: When it comes to an official Philadelphia Cheese Steak or Hoagie, look no further. These are the closest you're going to get without making the drive down the Turnpike! We start our hoagies off with Philadelphia rolls that are delivered fresh every morning and add sliced Freda brand Italian meats and various Italian cheeses, your choice of veggies, a mixture of oil and vinegar and top it off with our secret Italian spice blend. Soft Pretzel Twists, just like the ones you can buy from the Vendors on the Philly streets, are delivered on select days (ask for some Wiz or Spicy Mustard to dip them in, it's wonderful!). Our Philadelphia Steaks (Beef or Chicken), grilled with Italian spices and, if so desired, served with caramelized onions are the best around. Come on in and see us, we'll be happy to help you decide which item to try first: Cheese Steak, Cheese Meatball, Hoagie, Sandwich or Salad. Your first trip in will not be your last! I guarantee it!!

“Best Sub in Palmyra!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

Always searching for the ultimate Italian sub... this is the closest I've found in PA so far (best so far is Anthony's in Ocean City, MD). The subs are great -- fresh and tasty... still need a little more flavor for me, though. The sharp cheese is fantastic (my mom ooh's and aah's about their cheese). The cheesesteak wasn't as great as I had hoped... neither sub nor cheesesteak is as full as I'd like/expect for the price. The most disappointing part is the hours... when the rolls are gone they close. Well, buy more rolls!!!! Everytime I have a hunger for a sub they aren't open and it's quite disappointing. They've lost a lot of business of mine because of it. Check if they take credit cards, because I'm not sure they do.

“BEST Sandwich Shop In Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

Have been here a few times and the food and service is always fantastic. Not only is everything fresh, but the way they make their steak for their sandwiches is phenomenal. Definitely not steak-um or pizza shop subs. Make sure to get a giant soft pretzel, too. They are awesome!

“BETTER than a typical sub shop!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2012 via mobile

Incredible! Freshly shaved cheese steaks with the best provolone cheese. Love the signature sub rolls. I think he brings them in from Philly daily. Please don't ever change those. I also have had their roasted turkey breast sub. Just as good! People are friendly & you can tell they appreciate your business.
