I moved here from Wilmington, DE 18 years ago. The Wilm/Philly area is the home of the "Philly Cheesesteak" and genuine Italian subs. I first stumbled into an "imposter" east coast sub shop before finding Hoody's and there is no comparison. Hoody's rolls are uniquely east coast, firm, lightly crispy outside, softer inside. The cold cuts are the best. The cherry peppers are so much better than jalapenos or banana peppers, especially combined with sweet peppers. The cheesesteaks are unparalleled. The staff is always friendly and solicitous. And Dick Hoody always takes care of the customers. They are almost like family after all these years: most still hear from way back when I found them.
