Wow, this place gets packed at meal times so plan accordingly (we are talking lines out the door and down the st.) So the nice thing about this place is that you can call ahead and place your order to be ready by the time you get there. Or you can try to come in about 30 minutes before meal times when the line is pretty short. Each sandwich here is made with loveeeeeeeee which is why they taste so good. The bread breaks apart easily (no tug of war with your teeth), and the meat quality is fantastic for the price you pay ($7? $8). I got the sharp provolone on my cheesesteak which complimented the jalapenos and grilled onions very well, but they also have the traditional whiz cheese as well. This sandwich was amazing and when you see the pictures you will see why it was voted in my book as the most meat you will get in a sandwich (no slabs of meat like at Pats or Genos).  There isn’t much space to sit at this joint, I counted 5 tables outside. The restaurant itself isn’t that large but its got regular clientele and rave reviews online so they need not worry about a shortage of customers.
