My grandfather and I often eat here before I go to work. Everything here is delicious from the pizza to the burgers to the subs. You get a good amount of food here for a decent price, service is friendly and speedy, and it's a great place for a family meal or hanging out with friends. There's a pub within... More

Recommended by several locals and did not disappoint. Great subs, pizza, and burgers. This local restaurant is worth checking out. Very crowded for lunch but fast friendly service. I highly recommend for lunch if you are in the area.

We needed a quick lunch, they split the full Italian sub for us and even divided the potato chips that come with it. Very good sub, we ate there twice in the week we were there.

I could eat here every night and order something different. They have good subs, pizza and fried chicken. Prices are reasonable too! We vacation in Southport once a year and I always make it a priority to eat here.

Since we live here we come here often for lunch or takeout lunch. After trying most of the other sub shops in Southport and Oak Island, we feel that this is by far the best. They also have great fried chicken, pizza, gyros, etc. Very casual, but lots of seating.

The atmosphere is open and lots of plants overhead to make you feel like it's lively but the service is not! They really do take a long time to get your food to you, to refill your styrofoam cup of tea or soda and the meats are very Sub Par on all their sandwiches and salads. White lettuce only for...

We have eaten here several times. The food is always good and service friendly. Last visit I had grilled chicken on pita. Very tasty served with lettuce (shredded), tomato, and a very good lemon sauce. We have had the subs in the past and not been disappointed. Large subs are enough to share.

Subs, pizza and chicken served here. The food is always cooked fresh to order and it is delicious. We always stop in when we go to Southport.

It's was the lunch day for my older friends and so, we decided to try something different at Famous instead of the steaks or the pizza. two of the ladies didn't know what a GYRO was and we decided to try the lamb and one ordered the chicken. The cucumber sour cream sauce was yummy and fresh and the flat... More
