Stopped in for the famed steak and cheese and was not disappointed! The wait was long and hot but well worth it. Definitely get the house sandwich oil. Will return to try the bologna. Another Niagara gem!

FANTASTIC subs! I stick with cheese steak and it never disappoints but the attitude of the ladies behind the counter is sad and needs some attention. Chill and crack a smile pleeease!

Used T.A. and this place popped up. Just a few mIles off the highway. Not in a great area, not a very nice place...but the sandwiches were great. Me and my buddy shared a double with cheese and a steak n cappicola-both very good.
