Went to have their steak hoagie that they are named for. It was ok. A little small for the money and kind of dry. Sides were very good size. Service was friendly and fast. Typical bar food it seemed. Lots of televisions to watch sports. I would try it again.

This is a great little sports bar tucked into a corner of a little plaza off Hillsborough Ave.
The place has about 15 HD tvs and are tuned into about anything you want to see, sportswise. It is a hang out for Penn State Alums in the area on game days.
The fresh boiled peanuts are spicy and addictive but they also have good sports bar fare, Philly cheesesteaks, wings, etc. Decent selection of draft and bottled beers but nothing real fancy.

I'll give it to 'em - the service is still great - the new owner has been a server for years - she and her husband are pros.

For some reason, they're skimping on quality, and the last 3 times I've been, everything's been WAY OVERCOOKED.

They've lost my biz.

Charanns is a small restaurant just north of Tampa International Airport. It has enough televisions to be classified as a sports bar but doesn't call itself one. Charann'a, which is a shortened form of the original owners's names (Charley and Ann), is a Tampa legend. They put out what are unquestionably the best cheese steak subs in the entire bay area. The bill of fare is simple, modestly priced, and quite good. You can upgrade your cheese steak from regular, to hot, to 3 Mile Island to Oh My God. If
If you're in Tampa and looking for a great cheese steak sub, put Charanns on the top of your list!

Tampa is loaded with little, local out of the way restaurants that put out trememdous meals at very modest prices.
