Several years ago, I tried the fried chicken and it was absolutely the worst fried chicken that I ever ate....the coating was saturated in old fry oil. Vowed I'd never go back here again. Today, I tried this place one more time because I was told that they recently had gotten better. I ordered a cold Italian sub. The sub... More

Used to come here all the time for great subs and even better chicken. My last few visits have been very poor because the chicken that used to be so good had been overcooked and very dry. Thought the first time it was just a bad day but on the third time I decided that was it for me.

We've tried the wings, fried chicken, pizza and steak sub. All were excellent. Not much to look at but it's clean and had both seating inside. This family owned establishment has been around for years and there's a good reason for that.

Their sign advertises "best fried chicken" - don't believe it. We could not get just a breast - had to get the white meat special which is a breast and wing - $4.50. The chicken was over done and dry inside. The breading had no taste and was greasy. Not only not worth the price but not worth the calories.... More

I order from here at least once a week. Each member of our family orders something different so we can have a bit of everything.

My wife and I stopped in for lunch at Famous Subs and Pizza. It was fantastic! My wife loved her Italian sub sandwich, and I had one of the best pizzas I've ever experienced!

My daughter had a swim meet and we were not familiar with the area. So we starting checking where to find a quick lunch. From the outside of the place we weren't sure what to expect. DO NOT PASS BY without stopping in. The fried chicken was to die for, crisp, fresh and delicious. The personal pan pizza was delicious.... More
