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.

I've been going here for a long time. Good food. I recommend it. One of my favorite sandwiches is the ham and cheese on rye with everything. Very good.

food was not tasty at all, don't like the setup, they constantly screwed up take-out orders. Some staff friendly, some were arrogant and some were just downright nasty.
