    Jake's is amazing. The sandwiches are all so unique and tasty. I have tried almost every sandwich and side and love them all. Just tried the 50/50 and it is my new favorite. Side of fried onions!

    Not your traditional cheesesteak but still tasty. Delicious fried pickles with sriracha mayo and the farm fries are stuff of legend. I'd definitely recommend and likely revisit on returning to Philly.

    Call your cardiologist prior to stepping into this place. In fact you might see you cardiologist in line ahead of you. Ability to make any sandwich into a bowl is a nice option for the Atkins dieters.

    Even though they were out of the grilled pineapple, the Pineapple Express was a fantastic sandwich! The rest of my party also thoroughly enjoyed their sandwiches. I will definitely be back!

    The 50/50 Sandwich. 1/2 pork, 1/2 smoky grilled bacon with house sriracha spread and sharp provolone. They have $5 MYOP (Make Your Own Pork sandwich) Mondays.

    The Garlic Bomb is perhaps the ultimate garlic-lovers’ creation. A crusty roll covered in homemade garlic spread, rib-eye steak, melted provolone, and deep-fried, crunchy, battered garlic cloves. Read more

    GET IN MY BELLY NOW!!! Fire sauce makes my mouth smile. Any of the pork sandwiches are winners, but really...everything here is a winner.

    Best sandwich place in Philly, hands down. Split the turbacon and an order of fries with a friend. Uniquely, the fries are also intergalactically good.

    50/50 with 1/2 brisket (instead of pork), 1/2 bacon, sriracha spread & sharp provolone. awesome sandwich

    The Sloppy Dog, two deep fried hot dogs with french fries all in a sandwich, looks intimidating but is the perfect sloppy sandwich mix. Grab a green tea and you'll feel good about yourself.

    So far I've had the chili fries, the Cherry float, the orange soda, and the Classic Sandwich. All really good. And they have amazing music. Just classic!

    Go on Mondays, get the pork sandwich for $5. Go other days as well to try their other also delicious sandwiches.

    I have eaten here a few dozen times over the last few years and have yet to find a sandwich I wouldn't eat again. Very unique combinations keep me coming back.

    Best in the city: get the 50/50. Amazing sandwich. Always give the specials a look as well. They are always worth it

    Can get your filling on a salad bowl for those who don't eat / want bread. Friendly service and tasty.

    Garlic bomb is a good choice but it’s not on menu. Ask for it.

    Try...everything. One of the best hoagie spots in the city. One sandwich should feed two healthy adults.

    Get the Village Turkey sandwich as a salad, but grab extra dressing because they definitely don't give enough. Oh and the banana whip yuuuuummmm

    Pretty darn good and greasy. I had mortadella. My only complaint: they had a tour group come in while patrons were eating. I found that inappropriate.

    I got the 50/50. Good bread and very solid pork. Bacon was disappointing - thin, flimsy, flavorless. Would still come back.

    The sandwiches here taste great, but the past three times I've tried to come, they have closed unreasonably early for no apparent reason. (i.e. 7:15-7:30 when the hours say open until eight)

    Their 50/50 pork and bacon sandwich is out of this world. Seriously.

    The common sandwich died and rose like a delicious Phoenix here. You'll never be the same.

    The mayor of this place only orders the salad bowl with the house balsamic. Baffling.
