I decided try this place after reading some of the reviews. I ordered the Italian sub with everything and an order of fries. The fries were delish, the sub, just ok, I've definitely had better. It wasn't terrible persay, just ok, nothing really spectacular. Even though my sub was free, they are pricey for the size sub you get. And... More

I went to Penn Station for the first time this afternoon and really enjoyed my chicken parm sandwich! It was made to order and the staff was very friendly. The sandwich and fries came out hot and there wasn't a long wait time. I highly suggest Penn Station for a quick bite to each.

Ate here based on reviews. My sub was disappointing. First, Penn Station unlike Subway, doesn't give you a choice on bread and the bread while fresh is only okay I prefer wheat more healthy. And the Tuna Salad was not very good. It was somewhat runny and was very mayonnaise tasting with very little tuna flavor way below average. The... More

My family really likes Penn Station. They have lots of choices and everything tastes fresh and is made exactly to order. Tow of our favorites are the Philly Cheesesteak and the Chicken Cordon Bleu. They are the only sub place that offers fresh cut fries too which is a favorite. They offer friendly, fast service.

Fries were great and the staff asked us four times how was everything which we appreciated but the sandwich was only cut on one side and hard to eat without all the ingredients falling out and frustrating me! Also to many size choices! Give me 6" or a 12" not a 4,6,8,10 or 12" sub for god's sake! The sandwich... More

I eat here regularly (once or twice a week), specifically for their fries. Fries are fresh cut and consistently tasty, never saturated with grease (which seems to happen at Five Guys). I'm not much of a carnivore so I rarely eat a sandwich, but my spouse says the cheesesteaks are consistently delicious and that the tea is better than average.... More

If you want a good solid long sub then you won't be dissatisfied. They have all the usual suspects but they also have a create your own sub which is cool. Got the cheese steak and turkey subs. Fresh and good. Check it out.

Was in the mood for a cheesesteak so decided to stop in. Sandwich was fantastic, hot, great taste, and stuff falling out the sides which is just how I like it. the fries were even better than that...crisp and tasty and fresh. Very friendly service, and fast too. Only part I dind't like was the sweet tea, but that's minor.... More

A friend and I were in the area visiting and looking for a quick go to lunch spot. We were recommended to check out Penn Station Subs and I'm very glad we went. Service was great, very friendly staff, clean clean clean!

I had the opportunity to try Penn Station for lunch recently based on the recommendations from friends, and it was definitely worth the visit. I had the cheesesteak, and it was a very well-made sandwich with quality ingredients, something most chain sub shops lack. I did not try the homemade fries but I've been told they are good. One complaint... More
