I was working and couldn't get out for lunch, but a friend, a local, brought me a foot-long Italian sandwich from Screpesi's. I've had Subway, I've had other local sandwiches, and this one was packed with lean meat, just the right amount of lettuce and...More

I was immediately pleased because the roll was very fresh. My hoagie had an average amount of cold cuts and the onions and lettuce were nice and crisp. I was pleasantly surprised that they offered Day's soda.
