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.
Sertinos Cafe closed May 2010.
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.
Love it for breakfast! Will try it for dinner today. The food is great as is the service.
Closest thing you'll find to a Chicago hot dog in Tucson. Fries are excellent.
Good prime rib sandwiches, make sure you share because they are huge!
These places could use a good scrubbing, but must be ok with
the health department. Have been to Luke's on Ft Lowell as well
as the one on Grant. Big difference in the amount of meat put onto
the sandwiches. Ft. Lowell site knows how to load up the bun,
much more stingy at the Grant location. The Italian Beef is
We like the meatball subs. Really tangy red sauce. In fact, so tangy (acidic) you may find yourself reaching for the tums afterwards. Our only gripe is that a meatball sandwich should come with cheese. Come on Luke. Meatball parmigiana!
We agree with fuzzygoats comment. Another why to put is, all icing and no cake. In other words, the sandwiches are heavy on the bread and rather light on the main ingredients. Moreover, most of the sandwiches are bland tasting as well. But are they better than say Subway? Yeah maybe, but not by that much.
Bread is good but I don't want half a loaf for a sandwich. Maybe the build up was too much, but it wasn't the best thing since sliced bread for me.
Huge portions, good service, joint could use a little deep cleaning.
My wife and I are from NJ and couldn't wait to try the Italian subs for dinner one night a few weeks ago. It was a big dissapointment. The rolls tasted like they were at least a day old. The cold cuts/provolone are not the best quality and sliced way too thick. The chopped, not sliced cherry peppers are soaked in way too much vinegar, to the point of drowning out the other flavors. There were no seasonings, like a dusting of oregano, and the oil seemed to be a cheap vegtable oil, not a decent olive oil. So...fuggetaboutit. Wouldn't make it in Jersey.
