You can't quote me on this but I believe this shop has been around since the 40's or 50's. It's my all time favorite to get a good Italian sub~ family owned and operated! Bring cash they don't take credit or debit cards!

My absolute lifetime favorite place - Sandy and Burt are the best. Have known them forever - no one can make an Italian hoagie better. All meat and cheese is cut to order while making your sandwich. The meat is cut very thin and melts in your mouth. I have not found a hoagie anywhere that can compare.

Sam's has been a fixture in Kennett for years and with good reason. The food is fresh, sandwiches are wonderful and very generously sized, breakfast there was a find - you really can't go wrong! I guess that's why they have been in business for so long.

You won't go hungry ordering from SAMs Sub Shop in Kennett Square. It's been there for at least 35 years and still owned by the same family. Great subs and steaks!

Anyone that would go to Subway when Sam's exists deserves their boring life! Get the special Italian and live the dream!

Whether you call them subs or hoagies, Sam's is hard to beat. My favorite is the Italian, and they slice the meat and cheese for each sandwich order. It's a lot of sub, too. Very easy to share (although it's so good, you don't want to). The service is always friendly, too. A great local sub shop.
