Nothing fancy but that's what makes it great. Their sandwiches are huge- pack with anything you want from spicy peppers to corned beef to mozzarella. Service fast and effective... Very clean! Enough for two people to split one sandwich..this place is no joke!

I live about a block away from this neighborhood staple and it never disappoints. Defonte's offers any array of choices and has some of the best sandwiche's I've ever eaten. If you plan on visiting I would suggest the Firehouse, Hot Turkey, Hot Roast Beef, Italian Stallion, and Nicky Special. The staff is friendly and fast and the owner Nicky is a sweetheart, he even makes it point to come over and say hello when I stop in. I honestly cannot understand how the Subway shop two doors down even stays open. The only negative in that they have short hours so make sure you get there early!
