We were driving through this adorable town, actually looking for a different place we had seen on TripAdvisor. Let me just say I'm so glad we never found that spot. It was lunch time and from the scene it looks like this deli is popular with locals. We split a Cheese Steak and the little one had an enormous hot... More

Take advantage of the $1 off lg subs on wednesdays. They are huge and full of the meats you order. Nice folks too...

Your hoagies are made to order and are excellent - the best in Carlisle. They are priced very reasonable. The sandwiches are very good also.

Had a grilled chicken sandwich there and it was just fine. You order from the counter and wait. Plenty of carry out going on from locals. Nothing fancy but the food as I said is fine. Convenient downtown location.

Stopped by to pick up a couple subs for my wife & I. She had been there before but this was my first trip. Definitely going back. I had the roast beef sub that was overstuffed with their in house cooked beef. It was tender, juicy and makes my mouth water just thinking about it. My wife had the boom-boom... More

We enjoyed the food offered here. The swiss mushroom hamburger was delicious, and the sub had a generous portion of ham and cheese. For $2 more, you get a soda and a choice of side - chips, cole slaw or salad.

Lots of really good, fresh meats and tons of options for toppings. You would need to order triple meat at Subway to match these subs. As long as you can parallel park you will love it!

They make a very good sub and you won't be hungry. It is walk up as they have no dining room. The subs are stuffed with meat.

This is a pretty average sandwich shop. Nothing special but nothing bad. The soups are pretty good. One word of caution, be ready with your order because the staff seems aggravated by you figuring out what you want as you go. This is truly unfortunate when you are a new customer like I was the other day. Thankfully, there was... More
