The major Pizza companies can learn a lot from this popular Pizza and Sub spot in Southport NC. Famous Subs & Pizza has the best Subs and Pizzas in Southport, bar none.

Best fried chicken ever! We always get our fried chicken from Famous. Besides that, they have a wonderful Greek salad, house pizza, and Philly cheese steaks.

The family has run this local establishment around 25 years. All the selections are great! Very casual & local. John, Bill and Pop are fine folks and once you know them friends for life.

Ordered a doner but sadly the server was hotter than the food & the chilly sauce. Very disappointing

My grandfather and I often eat here before I go to work. Everything here is delicious from the pizza to the burgers to the subs. You get a good amount of food here for a decent price, service is friendly and speedy, and it's a great place for a family meal or hanging out with friends. There's a pub within... More

Recommended by several locals and did not disappoint. Great subs, pizza, and burgers. This local restaurant is worth checking out. Very crowded for lunch but fast friendly service. I highly recommend for lunch if you are in the area.

We needed a quick lunch, they split the full Italian sub for us and even divided the potato chips that come with it. Very good sub, we ate there twice in the week we were there.
