“i should have known better,from years ago nothings changed there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013

first thing i heard out of there mouths is they utta legalize pott. gave them my order 2 very displeasing cheese steaks, one was suppose to be with out onion, the other with extra cheese and sausce to go with both, then ordered 2 itailian subs one with out cappacola ham and no oil or mayo,the other reg Ita. with ex prob cheese no oil or mayo. when i got home there were onions every where on both, enough for ten steak sand, there cheese is sliced so ******** thin you would have to order exxxxxxxxxxxtra cheese to really enjoy the extra cheese i like on a cheese steak with a (little) onion. the 2 little containers of sausce they could hardly sacrifice wasnt enough to cover a bun!!!the sub i got with out capp ham had no additional salami, in fact there was 4 slices the whole length of the sub roll, 4 slices cheese you can actually see threw and of course enough onions to smell up our next store neibors house, and the best part of all the rolls that were used for the subs could have been used for CLUBS for home defence.4 sandwiches cost me 30.00 dollars even.terrible JOB!!!

“Went downhill”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2013

For years everyone knew that Smith's had the best cheesesteaks in town. Don't ask me what made them change a good thing but their steaks are a far cry from what they used to be. If you like onions then by all means go there as they start each day piling the grill high with nothing but onions. Once they have reduced somewhat then they place some steak on top and mix it all up. The subs I would be willing to bet are probably 60% onions. You know it's bad when they charge you extra money to get onions not added to your subs. If your in the mood for a cheese steak steer clear of Smith's. On the other hand, if you like cheeseburger subs then they would be the first place I'd go. There's nothing special about them but whatever they do to make them is pretty incredible.

“Great subs!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 December 2012

We love the subs at Smith's! My husband likes the cheeseburger sub and I like the chicken sub. Good food at a reasonable price. They make the subs on really good rolls. I don't know where they get their onions but they are the sweetest onions I've ever tasted. Going back this weekend!

“Horrible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 via mobile

The worst sandwiches I have ever had! Do not eat here the food is awful. Got the famous cheesesteak and it was the most tasteless dry sandwich ever. No idea why people like this place
