While they are famous for their cheese steaks, which are excellent according to my dinner guests, I also found the chicken version to be very good as well.

My expectations weren't very high but even if they were they would have been met. They make a very good sandwich and the owner is a great guy who takes really good care of his customers. When your in AZ check it out.

As others have written this is a great local sandwich shop. The Cheese Steak is the best and the owner and his people are great. Always a friendly genuine greeting.

Love this mom n pop shop. Such great grub. I recommend the mushroom pepper hoagie with added bacon and the red sauce with onions. The bread is perfection.

I can't say enough good things about this place, the atmosphere is always fun and friendly, Food is always fresh. I love the steak subs, tuna and meatball!! I am sure the rest are good but those are my favorites. Onion Rings are great!!! Give it a try you won't be disappointed.
