Uncle Sam's has a wide menu of sandwiches and pizza. I especially like the 7-inch personal pizza. The restaurant offers Hoagies and Grinders, as well as salads. The staff is friendly, courteous and attentive. The prices are moderate.

Cheese Steak Sandwich contains 90% gnarly and gristle meat, be aware. They think they provide great customer service but they are full of themselves. They used to have great food, has gone downhill.

Went here for lunch and I ordered 1/2 cheesesteak , it was huge and delicious. I think next time I would only do 1/4 size. The service was great and all our meals were great.
