Twice now I've ordered the same sandwich, and they always ask "do you want tomatoes, lettuce, and onions?" I always reply "No." Twice now I've gotten home with my order only to open it up and, yep, there's lettuce, tomato, onion. Great. I don't know...More

We were celebrating our grandson's 3rd birthday, and his parents bought assorted sandwiches from Uncle Sam's. Favorites were the cheesesteak and the Italian. The bread was excellent, which isn't always true for sub shops, and the meats were first rate. We were only sorry we...More

If you enjoy the steak and mushroom cheesesteak Hoagie, this is very good and the price is very reasonable. The sandwhich comes with French fries when you eat there.

Tried it on a Sunday afternoon so it wasn't too busy. Got a steak sandwich and it was delicious. Great flavor! I recommend getting everything on it. Food was prepared rather quickly. Only downside was the cashiers terrible attitude. She was rude and only seemed...More

Uncle Sam's is an excellent sub shop! It is very filling and the price is great. I eat there at least once a month. I definitely recommend Uncle Sam's!
