I get back there every chance I get! First time was teaching ROTC at Princeton in 1994-1996. Great hoagies, the classic cheesesteak is my favorite!

What better food to have when visiting this beautiful university town than this carb and flavor haven? As a less athletic non-student, I should have had the half not the whole Phat Lady, or held the fries. Who knew there was an Ivy League chip butty?

Great subs, reminded me of eating at 2am in college, but great flavor. They had a special sauce that went great with fries.

Here's what you do: call ahead and order an eggplant parm with grilled onions, lettuce, and hot sauce. Wait 5-10 minutes, then start walking. You can't go wrong. Hoagie Haven is an institution at Princeton, alongside Bent Spoon or Tiger Noodles. Avoid on the Saturday or Sunday of Reunions.

I like subs, hoagies, sandwiches or whatever you'd like to call them. This place is fair and cheap. The hoagies a big, but it's mostly bread. I think it's great for college kids.

excellent food. The cheese steak sub was phenomenal. The ingredients were fresh (delicious jersey tomatoes) and reasonably priced. Will become a regular! Take-out only as far as I could tell.

I have been eating these sandwiches over the past 20 years during my visits to Princeton. The quality is always outstanding and this remains true on my recent visit. This place is always busy, the bread is tremendous, nothing fancy just good sandwiches...done right!

Any item on the menu is very , very, good. I personally like the Shrimp Po Boy. It is Huge !!!!!!!! . My second favorite is the Fat Lady . Hoagie Haven is a must stop, if you are in the Princeton Area. Nothing compares

Had the chance to visit Hoagie Haven for the first time. It's by far one of the best sub shops in the area. And while many people just go because it is a place to visit for classic Princeton, NJ, it's also worth going just for the food. Their specialties are odd concoctions of sandwiches filled with mozarella sticks fries... More

Very good local hoagie shop! Very popular with all the locals and Princeton students. My one complaint is that they use long rectangular strips of what I presume is, due to its shape and structure, highly processed chicken.

Thank jacob708
