Instead of eating at a chain restaurant, we chose to have lunch here. Wrong choice. Extremely dated interior, very dirty bathroom, but locals seem to come here, as there were ~ 12 people eating. My husband had the special of 2 slices cheese pizza + a soda, which he said was fine. I had the grilled turkey & Swiss cheese... More

My husband and I have been meaning to eat here its been about a year or so since we were last here. The steak sub was terrible I asked for mushrooms cheese whiz and meat only. The meat was sparse and mushrooms not on there any where we saw. It had enough cheese whiz so that the only good thing.... More

They have excellent sandwiches. We usually go there at least once a week for lunch. We'll call ahead and go in and pick up our order. Always good.

What a great find! We visited last week and had subs and a slice of pizza...best pizza we've had in town yet! The subs were served on fresh baked bread and with so many choices of meats, cheeses and veggies it was hard to choose! We loved it. The only downside was no high hair...but we will definitely go back😃

It's not a fancy place. But it's the real deal. The beer is cold (and cheap) the folks who work here are hard working, decent people, and the food is great. (G8-Turkey-cheese-bacon toasted) is one of my favorites. The salads are fresh and full of whatever you want. If you like sports, you'll be sure to like the conversations and... More

The subs I had here really were great. You can tell there are a lot of regulars because 1 in 2 two people they knew by name. It's not fancy at all. It's a hole in the wall bar with cheap beer. If you want a sub this is the place to get it

Got off 81 on our way home to New England, in need of lunch after touring the Army Heritage Center. We picked American Heroes based on three excellent reviews and were not disappointed. The decor won't win any awards, but my grinder was generously portioned, perfectly toasted, and quite delicious, washed down with a cold Yuengling on tap, just what... More

Can't beat the subs and grinders! Cold beer take out and on tap. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the food is great. Also perfect to watch 'the game' while you have a bite. Sunday wing special, hot wings are perfectly done.

It doesn't look like much from the outside but absolutely the best subs, grinders, fries and burgers around. Along with cold beer on tap. All at a great price.
