Based on reviews here figured I'd try it. When I pulled in I was a bit skeptical. Definitely a little hole in the wall lol. Went in, thought I'd stepped through a time portal back to the late fifties. Busy as all getout. Phone ringing off the hook. I can see why. Incredible Philly cheesesteak sub. A touch pricy. $9...

Philadelphia subs. Best hoagies anywhere. The Italian special is the best of all. The buns are delicious and they give you more then enough meat. I can never finish a whole hoagie. So if you want a great hoagie pick Philly Subs

I come to visit this area about once every 3 - 4 years and this is a must stop. I have been eating at this place almost since the day they opened and now continue the tradition. They know how to make a sandwich that fills your stomach and tastes great. I do the Italian and sometimes wonder if I... More

Still one of the best hoagies in the Valley. Good meat and cheese, big variety and great value for your money. Great wings! I do miss their pizza, a lot.

On our way home from Upper Eddy to Ohio. Needed to stop for lunch. Was a little off route. Checked Trip Advisor, others recommend highly. Looking for a Philadelphia Steak sandwich before going home. Sandwiches & wings where great. Responsibly priced. Bread was fresh😀. Drinks sold in bottles. Ladies behind the counter very friendly. Small eating area about 16 tables.... More

Absolutely delicious! It's quick and simple place, but the nicest people who work there. Very fair prices for the quality of the food. Nice little neighborhood place.

Tiny place, the kind of place only the locals usually know about but word has spread and for good reason, they offer the BEST CHEESESTEAKS EVER!!! I can honestly say I compare all other cheesesteaks to Philly Subs and so far no one else has come close. If in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. head to Northampton Street and have a cheesesteak you... More
