Absolutely delicious! It's quick and simple place, but the nicest people who work there. Very fair prices for the quality of the food. Nice little neighborhood place.

Tiny place, the kind of place only the locals usually know about but word has spread and for good reason, they offer the BEST CHEESESTEAKS EVER!!! I can honestly say I compare all other cheesesteaks to Philly Subs and so far no one else has come close. If in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. head to Northampton Street and have a cheesesteak you... More

They have the absolute best subs in all of PA! I have been coming here for years and their product is consistent and so well worth the money! They pile on the meat and toppngs and the rolls are super fresh! The staff have not changed in ten years, that speaks volumes! Every time my Air Force child comes to... More

I retract my last review and apologize to the owners of Philadelphia Subs, I had them confused with Philly subs in Plains W.B. I went there yesterday for lunch and the steak sandwich was very good. The service was great and the people very friendly and polite. As I sat at a table eating I noticed a waitress walk by... More

Only if you like a lot of grease, I'm originally from Philadelphia and was looking for a good cheesesteak and I was told by a co-worker that these are as good as a REAL Philly steak. No way. I sat in my car and unwrapped it and the grease was dripping out. I then took a bite and my lap... More

If you are in the area and want a hoagie, this is the place to go. Unlike virtually every other sub shop around, they actually put meat on your sandwich. Imagine that. I find the Italian Special to be particularly filling, and lighter eaters can make a few meals out of it. They put lots of nice wafer thin sliced... More

Everytime I go back home, I make it a point to head to Philadelphia Subs to get an "Italian Special" - they only have this in a large, so I usually get two meals out of it. Very tasty, love the sesame seed rolls!
