I was very disappointed to receive a Steak and Cheese Sub that did not have enough meat in the sub to reach the top. There was about 2" of steak missing to reach the top and both ends did not have meat filled in. I'd like to find a restaurant that could provide the proper quantity of meat to fill the sub roll in Florida. This is not the way a Philly Cheese Steak should be served. I paid enough money to receive a sandwich that should have the proper quantity of meat in the roll. NOTE-we were the only customers in the shop-so it's not like there was a long line of individuals to receive an order and perhaps there was a mistake in placing enough meat on the grill due to being rushed. The flavor was good but I won't be going back because of the lack of meat/rib eye steak.

This new addition to the Tierra Verde food scene is a must visit. The breakfast and lunch choices are extremely varied and the prices so reasonable. There is something for everyone's taste. The Philly Steaks come chock full of ribeye and the onions are free of charge. Wonderful. There are also chicken (cooked in-house) steaks. All served on a 12" roll, as are the hoagies (subs). Various toppings are available. Matt offers "Heart Healthy Options" which include: Italian, Greek and Mediterranean salads, to just name a few. Breakfast is also a real treat. So if you are on your way to Ft. DeSoto for the day, call ahead and your food will be waiting for you to pick-up.
