Quickie Review #7: Lenny's Sub Shop

My lovely wife the Rock Star and I honeymooned at a resort in the Poconos, deep in the wild jungles of Pennsylvania, where we stayed in a true Roman-style, two story, rock star suite, complete with champagne-glass-shaped jacuzzi, sauna, small pool, fireplace, and a bed with real fake stars overhead. During mealtimes, we loved to dine on genuine Philly cheesesteaks, and if you've ever eaten one, you know you've had one of the true gourmet dining experiences in all America. Most sub chains have something they call a cheesesteak, but 99.9% just can't compare with the real thing. Well now, my friends, you don't have to go to Philly, the Poconos, or even Atlantic City, just pay a visit to your local Lenny's Sub Shop, now found in almost twenty states nationwide.

Lenny's offers many different types of cold subs, hot subs, and round sandwiches, so if cheesesteaks aren't your thing, you have plenty of choices. Nevertheless, if you like Phillys at all, you must try Lenny's version, as their founder started his career in Wildwood, New Jersey, close to The Source, and thus knows what he's doing. I tried Lenny's version on wheat bread, hot, with all the veggies, plus hot pepper relish. YOU MUST ORDER THE CHEESESTEAK WITH HOT PEPPER RELISH. Like all true cheesesteaks, this one was buttery, cheesey, and all around melt-in-your-mouth good, plus the pepper relish adds a great kick that makes it extra special. The Rock Star loves their Traditional Sub, with capicola, ham, and provolone on white bread. Unless you have a HUGE appetite, the regular sizes are plenty, and Lenny's store brand chips are excellent as well. Check them out at and remember:
