Frankie's is the absolute best! Quintessential east coast sub shop right here in Tucson. The cheesesteaks are amazing, Whiz, add hot peppers!
Try to go when Frankie himself is there. Not only does he heighten the customer service experience ten-fold, but when the Cat is away the mice have been known to try and skimp on the cheese.
Oh, and the phone number isn't right.....
The chocolate babka on Fridays.....oh my god.

Unless you are going to Philly to eat at Geno's or Pat's, handsdown Frankie's is the best and most authentic you will find outside of the Philly area. Yes, the rolls make a huge difference.
I may only be 24 and from Kansas, but this place has the best Hot Wings and Sandwiches I have ever had. They know how to make good food here, and will gladly provide without raiding your wallet. I haven't met a sandwich here that wasn't toothsome, certainly don't hesitate to venture away from the top ten. The Chicken Caccitore, Eggplant Parm, and Philly Phanatic are all worthy of your attention, if you order the Italian make it a grinder.
Be prepared to be nice to the servers, generally there's only one on staff (in addition to one of the owners), so they can get overworked if there's a sudden rush.
East Coast Super Subs (ECSS) produces excellent subs; there's no two ways about it.
This is where I go in Tucson for the best hot sandwiches. You'll see a ton of reviews on other aggregates like Yelp! -- but the hype really is warranted. Go here; you won't be disappointed.
The menu details a variety of subs, but highlights the top ten. The *Broadstreet Bully* and the *Jimmy McKenna* are exceptional and worthy of their #1 and #2 rankings.
However, even the sandwiches excluded from their most popular rankings are still righteous (i.e. The Philly Fanatic). The bread rolls ECSS uses on their subs really makes them special.
Always a treat to eat there when in town. Great sandwiches and soups, and the staff are very pleasant.
Absolutely the best Philly cheesesteak in the area. Try one with the cheese-whiz on it. Frankie himself recommended it (along with the garlic option) ... and it was FABULOUS! We stop there now on the way to the Univ of Arizona football games to pick up a couple of cheesesteaks to take along. Frankie's is well worth the experience!
Delicious, fresh-tasting sandwiches. Great variety of choices. Best bread.
