37th and Spruce


Across from Lower Quad Gate


American, Sandwiches


8:30am-5:30pm (M-F)


Unique in that it offers tea. Generic in that it offers sandwiches, hoagies, and wraps. While this place doesn't have any one distinguishing feature other than the tea, it's not unreasonably-price and gives you everything you would want from a sandwich. Even though it occupies prime real estate outside of the upper-quad gate, the lines are shorter than its neighbors further east probably because it's relatively undiscovered. -MY

These guys are the friendliest on campus. Also, they are very clean and sanitary especially in comparison to other food trucks like Lyn\'s and the Mexi one next to them. -Ben Franklin

Philadelphia is notorious for its hoagies to compare it to subway is an insult. -heather

4 bucks for a footlong turkey hoagie? Sold. Nice guy too. He\'s only one guy, so if he has a line it could take a while, but usually no more than 10 minutes. -Ben Franklin

I've always called this cart "Asian Gentleman" because "Greek Lady" used to exist in its place. It's great, the guy is friendly and quick, and it really should have longer lines. -

I started getting the Mixed Cheese wrap here a few months ago. Though the guy still doesn't remember my order, he knows that I always get whole-wheat and no mayo. Strongly recommend the wraps as they are quite filling and very tasty for a mere $3.50. I wouldn't bother waiting in line if there are more than three people ahead of you. -AG

The bread isn't a perfect Philadelphia roll (non-natives won't be able to tell), but the thick juicy slices of medium-rare roast beef are a distinct plus. No line, excellent sandwiches, low prices. Best option for hoagie on a truck and better than the Wawa across the street. -Scott

This is a cart I had been addicted to for a long time. Some of my favorites include the Meatball sandwich with provolone and Parmesan, or the sweat Italian sausage or the Hot Roast Beef. Everything is delicious, and there is hardly ever a line. Very friendly guy too. -Ben Franklin

Why does nobody know about this place? Quickest meal on campus, every time. Not only is there never anyone on line (what line?), the service is extremely fast. If the cart had a "Subway" sign on it, it'd get mobbed, but the hoagies taste nearly the same. This place needs more attention. -Ben Franklin
