Uncle Sam's has a wide menu of sandwiches and pizza. I especially like the 7-inch personal pizza. The restaurant offers Hoagies and Grinders, as well as salads. The staff is friendly, courteous and attentive. The prices are moderate.

Cheese Steak Sandwich contains 90% gnarly and gristle meat, be aware. They think they provide great customer service but they are full of themselves. They used to have great food, has gone downhill.

Went here for lunch and I ordered 1/2 cheesesteak , it was huge and delicious. I think next time I would only do 1/4 size. The service was great and all our meals were great.

The Chicken Parmesan Grinders is the best I've ever had. They also serve a wide variety of different things to fit all your needs.

We live in the neighborhood and visit at least once a month. The young ladies are so sweet to my 77yr old dad. He loves their Hawaiian personal Pizza. I recommended the Aunt Sam's Pizza, it is awesome. I haven't found a thing on their menu that wasn't good. They have an excellent menu with something on it for everyone.... More

I was craving some chicken wings so stopped here. Decent wings, the menu consists of everything from pizza to hogies and everything in between. It's a good place if you need to feed the whole gang pretty quick. Prices are mid range, tvs, and decent service, the place needs updating but clean.

I have been a regular since they opened the original location at 32nd Street and Shea. Being a Philadelphia native relocated to Phoenix it was difficult to find a hoagie shop in Phoenix to fit what I was accustomed to back home. This is a close second. The mushroom cheese steak with fried onions and hot peppers hits the spot... More

Uncle Sam's has been at this location for many years and has seen no improvement to the interior which it sorely could use. We never feel that it's very clean. We prefer picking up our food and bringing it home to eat.
