    Great place. Walked from my hotel. Waitress was very sweet. Told me to order the Stromboli. was amazing! The locals were all happy in there too! Try it out!

    I had to post an update after trying their cheesesteak. Ordered with American cheese and raw onions, and is easily one of the best cheesesteaks I've ever had. As always, service was friendly. This is a great place to stop for a meal.

    This place was the bomb!!! We had the Stuffed shells and a small Cheesesteak. Both were outstanding. Since they're known for their Stromboli I had to get one to go. I'll have to admit it was one of the best sandwiches I have ever had. The only downside of this place is they open at 10am and I have an earlier flight. Otherwise I would be getting a sandwich for my flight in the morning. Couldn't ask for a better wait staff too

    Always excellent! We make it a planned stop before we head back to NC every visit! Even missed our flight once because of it! So worth it!
