Great comfort food - but not healthy. The Broiler's a neighborhood institution and you can smell it fire up the cooktops in the late morning - from hundreds of feet away. The steak sandwiches are good and the pizza great hangover food. Some people might...More

You can never go wrong in ordering from the boiler. The thin crust pizza is wonderful, be sure to ask for extra sauce. I love the hot ham and cheese sub and the meatball sub.

Ambiance? Pleeeease! The place is a Formica-clad remnant of the 70s. Service? A bit apathetic, at times, but only when they're open. Value? Nope! The food's hardly a bargain. Taste? Yep, that's the ticket. OK pizza, but gang buster sandwiches! Just go for the sandwiches!...More

I always come to the broilers but had not been in awhile. Tonight was calm and cool. Was able to eat, chill and enjoy the time.

Good and messy. But you use a fork to get every bit of this sub in your mouth. Their large sub is definitely enough for two to share.
