Nelly's is a typical neighborhood, "just off-campus" pizza and sandwich joint like you'd find near any college campus anywhere. The menu includes pizza, calzones, wings, and sandwiches of every description, from the basic Philly-style cheese steak, to monstrous, "everything-but-the-kitchen-sink" varieties stuffed with every sort of hangover-mitigating fried goodness one can think of - cheese sticks, chicken fingers, french fries, etc,...

It is a great late night sandwich place. Mostly college kids and people just leaving the bars go here. Horrible parking though. No complaints food wise though.

So many choices to choose from - fat sandwiches, chicken wings, pizza... you name it, they seem to have it! I personally love the Fat Cat and the Fat Elvis. For less than $7, these sandwiches can last me two lunches at work
