We ordered the Mediterranean Sub - very fresh and tasty. The server, Keara, was nice, polite, and patient, as we found it difficult to pick with all the options. Place is clean and our order was quick, but the sandwich was considered. If you are...More

You haven't had the Burgh's best cheese steak until you've eaten Uncle Sam's. We picked up two cheese steaks and some fries and made a picnic out of it. It's the perfect meat-cheese-bun-extras ratio. They have a wider selection of sandwiches, but if it's your...More

Why don't they call it a Pitt Cheesesteak? Had the Ultra Uncle Sam's cheesesteak and I thought it was better than any cheesesteak in Philly. I ate most of the cheesesteak places in Philly and they are not as lean and flavorful. The sandwich was...More

I got the loaded Italian sausage sub. It was great!!! The bread to filling ratio was perfect, and the flavor on point. 10/10 would try again.

This place has, hands down, the best sub sandwiches in Pittsburgh. They fresh slice their meats and cheeses in store, and everything is made to order. They are very fast, and very cheap as well. I have been eating here for many years, and have...More

Great quality meats with lots of option and reasonable prices. If you eat there you get free fries with your sub.

A great place for lunch. The Philly is delicious and it is huge so plenty to eat. Two meals from one lunch always seems like a good value to me. The only drawback is the service was efficient but not very friendly...coming from the south...More

Went to the Squirrel Hill location of Uncle Sam's recently, but i've been to the Oakland one as well. Uncle Sam's subs are always delicious, the french fries they give you with them(eat-in only) are fantastic, and the prices are very reasonable. The service is...More

This place is your typical greasy spoon. The staff is present but not necessarily hospitable. I heard the cook mumbling to himself a lot and sort of throwing stuff around. Once you get past that and get to eat the subs you experience what they're...More
