We stopped by and got a delicious BLT while waiting to get into our rental. The owner and workers were very friendly and stared up a nice conversation while we waited. Once we got out food we just ate it up. My favorite was the onion rings. Yum!! We will love to visit again when we are in this neck... More

The tour guide from the wild horse tour we went on said this place was great. He was correct! My family and I are originally from NY and had not been able to find really good cheesesteaks in NC until we went here. My 18yo daughter had one for the first time and loved it!

BEST SUBS ever!!! This was a pleasant surprise. You have to wait a while, because they are so GOOD and so popular, but the WAIT is well worth it. These are some of the BEST eats on the Outer Banks!!!!

Was tired of eating fresh caught tuna so we ran out for comfort food. I actually lived in Philly for 10 years and this place beat all the Philly treasured places

Some of the best Philly subs we've had. I had a bbq one which was a first. The salad we were served was frozen, but they gave us a replacement which was very good. The only slight was the subs were pretty small and the price on the upper end.

We were looking for a quick bite to eat for lunch. This place is popular not only for tourists but locals as well. We did have to wait about 15 mins. for our food but it was hot and pretty good.

Steak subs are just like in Philly. Plenty of meat, nice soft rolls and the "whiz". My only complaint with this place is the service is super slow. Called in my order was told 20-30 minutes that turned into 50 minutes. Other than slow service this place is a must.

Thank Evan K

Best cheesesteak on the beach! Family owned, family run business with a family-friendly environment! We have something for the entire group- cheesesteaks, subs, burgers, hot dogs, chicken fingers, and more. Don't forget to try a drink from the bar, or one (or two or three...) of the thirteen craft beers on tap!
