I have been eating these sandwiches over the past 20 years during my visits to Princeton. The quality is always outstanding and this remains true on my recent visit. This place is always busy, the bread is tremendous, nothing fancy just good sandwiches...done right!

Any item on the menu is very , very, good. I personally like the Shrimp Po Boy. It is Huge !!!!!!!! . My second favorite is the Fat Lady . Hoagie Haven is a must stop, if you are in the Princeton Area. Nothing compares

Had the chance to visit Hoagie Haven for the first time. It's by far one of the best sub shops in the area. And while many people just go because it is a place to visit for classic Princeton, NJ, it's also worth going just for the food. Their specialties are odd concoctions of sandwiches filled with mozarella sticks fries... More

Very good local hoagie shop! Very popular with all the locals and Princeton students. My one complaint is that they use long rectangular strips of what I presume is, due to its shape and structure, highly processed chicken.

I have been visiting hoagie haven on my trips to see family since the 80's and it never fails to be delicious. I was surprised by how long the line was at 11:15 AM, but was glad I got there when I did. If you are in a hurry, don't show up at noon on a beautiful day, but you... More

Gorge on a whole hoagie or share with a date, your satisfied for $10. Prices still set the standard for a "Value Meal" even after 27 years from when I ate my first. Quick service and plenty of choice fixings to add on top of your basic roll. Arrive hungry. Place could be a little cleaner to keep me from... More

You can get a hoagie anywhere, but it all starts with the bread then to the veg and meats. The result is almost heaven. Every time I visit mom I HAVE to make a stop there. Even if I have to go a bit out of the way. Like half a state out of the way.

Hoagie Haven is an institution and a must if you're in Princeton, NJ ! Its a small dive frequented by college kids and adults alike and is CASH Only. The sandwiches are quite large - the half alone can feed two people and its quite delicious. When you walk in you can smell the French fries and whatever meat is... More

Hoagie Haven is a landmark of Princeton New Jersey. When people visit, I tell them they have to go here because the uniqueness of the food and just the great taste. This place is a great experience and if you go you must get a phat lady or Sanchez.

I mean I think it's a good place for a late night food run, especially for college people... Maybe I am too old now but I was not that impressed with this place. Just asa first impression is kinda of run down place, not that clean, and workers who are not too friendly with asking questions about their menu. They... More
