Stopped by on a trip to visit valley forge national park and wasn’t disappointed. My order was taken right away and my food was ready in about 5 mins. Love their cheesesteak and chili. Probably a good thing there I don’t live close by.

Met for lunch here with relatives. Just a good, no...real good sandwich shop. Deli style fare with good service. A local favorite. Every sandwich is a good one. They also open early for breakfast.
