Food Porn: North Street Sub-Way

North Street Sub-Way (I just found the official name is Chuck’s North Street Pizzeria, but I’m still referring to it as North Street) is a tiny little pizzeria on North located right on the corner of Linwood.  I’ve probably walked by it countless times while taking my dog for a walk and I’ve always been curious about the quality of their food.  Call me crazy but every time I walk by a place that looks like a hole in the wall I immediately think they probably make something delicious.  I mean, why else would a place that looks like that still be in business?

So on a Friday afternoon my coworker Sue and I decided to walk up the street and try it out.  Here’s how our lunch went.

Walking inside, you can immediately tell this place gets some repeat business.  The groups of people we saw inside looked like they come here every week, you know, some “regulars”.  Sure it can sometimes be a little alienating but we just went with it, walked up to the counter and placed our lunch orders.  As you can see below, the interrior is pretty small.  You place your order in the back corner and they call it out when it’s ready.  There is maybe 8 tables of seating, so you might need backup plan if you can’t find anywhere to sit.  Luckily, there is a tiny little park across the street (Sisti Park) that has some seating but it’s currently having some serious work done to it.

Looking at their menu it’s pretty standard pizzeria food.  They have Chicken Wings/Fingers, Pizza (if ordering a full pizza, best idea is to get it to go) and a wide variety of Subs.  But what I noticed was their lunch specials which I took advantage of with a half Sub combo.  For about 5 dollars I got a half sub and an order of steak fries, which I think is a really great deal.

It was a pretty decent Chicken Finger sub, but there was one glaring mistake (in my opinion).  While the actual Chicken Finger was fried to a crunchy perfection, when they applied the hot sauce they just squirted some sauce on top (my coworker Sue actually brought it to my attention).  Normally, I think the proper application is tossing the fingers in a bucket; Fingers and Wings taste way better when coated in sauce instead of having a tiny amount just squirted on.

Aside from that one mistake, the rest of the meal was pretty damn good for $4.99.  They didn’t skimp with the fries either, with my order I actually had some left over (which is rare for me).  So if you work near the area, definitely check it out.  Even though their Sub didn’t blow me away, I was definitely satisfied after my meal and walked away paying way less then had I chosen one of their competitors.
