Gllad that there is one in WestPhilly
These hoagies are the best, they put alot of meat without you even having to ask for extra meat, It something in the mayonnaise that makes them so great. I love them I can eat them everyday. Its one employee there that is so nice. I don't know his name but he works very hard. Good Job! The only thing is they need extended hours now that the weather is changing and its getting hot and people don't like cooking. At least extend it Mon- Fri until 8pm Sat until 7 an Sunday till at least 5 or 6, its nothing like a good hoagie when you get off work and out of church. They close at 6, alot of people just be getting off work at 6. Hoagies Are the best, just work on the hours and then yall are in business for real!!!!!!!!
Pros: Great Food, Fresh Meat, Fresh Bread all around
Cons: The hours, they close too early and need to be open on Sundays
I visited Philly for the first time with an ex-girlfriend and her father took me to K&A's to get an authentic hoagie. I'm from Houston, TX, so I was really looking forward to it. I ordered the Shannon's Spicy Special. The sandwich was the best one I had ever had in my life. It was so good that over the next 3 days, I had 3 more. They are very reasonably priced and so large that it is hard to finish in one sitting. I brought 3 more back to Houston with me. The greatest sandwich ever!
Pros: Great taste, excellent service, filling sandwich
Cons: In Philly (I live in Houston, TX)
Back in the day there were two or three premier hoagie shops in the city and everyone knew who and where they were. I thought these shops had long since disappeared until a friend shared K & A sandwiches with me. This is a quality sandwich shop that not only makes the best hoagies I've ever eaten, but their corn beef specials are to live for. Add to that 50 different kinds of potato chips, bakery fresh desserts and all kinds of sodas and drinks and you have the ingredients for a truly great eating experience!!
I have searched all over Philadelphia (especially South Philly) for the best hoagie. This place makes the best hoagies by far. Better than Primo's, Ricci Brothers, Melino's all of which are very good.
Pros: Food, Inexpensive, Service
Cons: , Can Be Crowded
