This is the worst service I have gotten anywhere in Oakland. The order was wrong when I got it, I was hung up on when I asked for a total, and the manager could have cared less. Go to the one in Squirrel Hill if you must have their subs!

This place dosn't hold a candle to Peppis on the North side.

I got a steak, and the meat to fat ratio was about 80% fat 20% meat... GARBAGE / White Rubish Subs.

You people need to go to peppis for the best sandwhiched in town...

The restaurant has a great location, right next to the Pitt campus. Of all the sandwich places in the Forbes-Fifth area, this place has the best atmosphere - if you eat inside, you get free fries with your sandwich.

I recently went to Pittsburgh for the summer, and being a Philadelphia native, I was a little skeptical when people described Uncle Sam's cheesesteaks as "Amazing". I decided to give them a try. I had half of their famous cheesesteak and half of the Italian Sausage Sub. I must say I was not impressed with the cheesesteak, it lacked that Philly touch and I don't even think they had whiz! However, the Sausage Sub was very good and the fries complemented it well. I suppose the cheesesteak is an adequate substitute until you've had a real cheesesteak, and is likely the best in Pittsburgh. The other subs I tried while I was in the city were impressive as well.

Pros: Most of the subs, fries, quick service

Cons: Cheesesteak

Uncle Sam's (in Oakland) is my favorite place to get a cheese steak in Pittsburgh. The atmosphere is also fantastically old school and the portion of food is hearty. If you avoid the expensive soda you can stuff your face with amazing subs and fries piled high with Frank's and ketchup for under 6 or 7 bucks. Love this place. Some complain about the wait time but that is to be expected from a place that makes everything when you order it, nothing here is sitting around. If you don't have a lot of time to waste at lunch go a little bit before noon or around 1 to avoid the crowd.

From the very first time I tried one of their Ultra mushroom cheeseteak sandwiches, I was in heaven. The fries are better than average and this includes the sweet potatoe fries as well. It isn't the most expensive place to eat and that's alright because the quality of their steak and bread for the buns is incredible. The service is usually speedy and polite. I always consider it a special treat to go and eat one of their subs.

Today we ventured into Uncle Sam's for lunch. I was craving my usual Ultra Mushroom Cheese Steak. Yum! My colleague, first timer, got the Italian Sausage. It took over 40 minutes from order until they refunded our money back because they wasted our half hour lunch!

Personally, I didn't mind the wait. The food is always well worth it. Today, the attitudes of the help and of the managers were atrocious. Please, next time you walk by there...drop in and tell them you are not eating there because they just don't care to treat their customers with respect!

Thanks!

I love this food, but I truly love this food after a night of drinking. The steak sandwiches are very good, but not the best, sorry. I long for days of the Philly cheesesteak, FROM PHILLY!
