I started patronizing this shop when it opened in the 1960's. The subs are second to none. There are tables for inside dining. Fast service and reasonable priced. However it closes at 5 P.M., no evening hours.

Always plan my trips to Niagara Falls with a stop at Violas, the very best steak subs. The double size is a bit much, better to order two regular size, one for now and one for later

Every year I return because I love the hoagies and the rolls and authentic Italian meat and cheeses. Just the fragrance walking in the door makes my mouth water!!!!

Best steak subs ever. If you never tried their food, do yourself a favor and stop in next time you have the chance. You won't be disappointed.
