So old school, it fools you. I remember them as a child and how delish they were and this family owned business is still kicking it. Absolutely freshest best ingredients assembled in time tested recipes. I ALMOST hate to write a across the board review...More

First visit to Screpesi's and it won't be my last. Very fresh bread...loaded with meat and toppings. A small was very filling. Three things to note. 1. A purchase under $10 on Credit Card will be charged an extra $0.25 2. Parking is very limited...More

Stopped by after reading the "The Tradition Continues". A sign like that sets a pretty high expectation given what folks living not too far from Philly are use to. Sara took my order with a smile and answered a few questions about the menu and...More

Screpesi's has been around forever and has now moved closer to me. They're sandwiches are amazing, soft or hard rolls. However, on ordering pizza from them for the first time we were disappointed. Much like frozen pizza. So, order the sandwiches and skip the pizza.

Screpesi's is an amazing little sandwich shop tucked away were you wouldn't expect it. The food is always fresh (including all ingredients on any sandwich) but especially especially the bread and buns. The ham and cheese, tuna or turkey and cheese are must-try sandwiches. Don't...More
