I stopped in here for lunch Saturday afternoon on the way home. The restaurant is older style but there's lots of space in the floor area and they had several arcade games along the wall that people could play and many of them were old school. It was neat to watch them cut the bread and make my sub and the bread was quite delicious. This is a very simple restaurant, but great for a quick bite to eat and a delicious sandwich. The prices are comparable with Subway, the staff was quick and friendly to deal with and the restaurant seemed fairly clean. Arabic

Subs are really big and taste good. Also pickles, a few boxed precut desserts (like cake slices), and, IIRC, chips. Some video games and an air hockey game. Plenty of parking and space inside. Dunno why I don't go here more often, especially since it's better than the chains.

Love coming here and ordering a different sub every time. Hot or cold they're always just right.

Classic spot, an updated decor would do wonders though.

The absolute best, Out of 20 other places I would pass by gladly to get to American Hero, More food for the money. Everything freshly cut, Always clean. I have yet to see a sub or hoagie place that can come close to American Hero.

We love this place! Quick, friendly service always. I'm from New England and have been looking for a "grinder" down here for the last 4 years to no avail. American Hero is the ONLY place I've found that reminds me of home. The restaurant is always clean, there is plenty of seating and parking. And again, I can't say enough about the staff. They're awesome!

Good local sandwich shop. They slice the meat right as you order. They have lots of vintage arcade games for your enjoyment as well.
