I used to eat at Penn Station in Cincinnati every day I Love Penn Station. I and the wife stopped at this location and I must say it's some of the best of Penn Station. The fries were some of if not the best I have ever had.

The Italian sub was amazing. I definitely will be going back.

First time here and it was a great dining experience. The staff was friendly and funny. Cheesesteak with grilled banana peppers was amazing. The cook threw in a few “travel” fries so there would be extra fries to eat on the way home.

Love Penn Station! Their subs are consistently great. Love that this location has some outdoor seating. My friend send I ride our bikes in the Tobacco Trail over and get lunch. They are always super friendly and the food is great. Penn Station must be a good company because the when the former owner had to leave they got some one just as friendly and outgoing who obviously cares about her customers!

Nothing especially bad, but nothing that jumped off the page for me either. The meat on the cheese steak sub was bland and mushy, while the fries tasted of overused oil. The fountain Dr. Pepper was also missing syrup like it was turned down or running out which made it undrinkable. I should have taste tested it before leaving. Friendly helpful service, and prompt turn around time for fast food on the go. Sadly the food seemed to lack the same quality as the people.

The fresh baked bread and hand cut fries are a winning combination!

Despite being a chain restaurant, their cheese steaks and fresh cut fries are absolute bangers. Service is always good.

Owners of this Penn Station have really taken a customer focused approach. Employees are always friendly and accommodating. Plus the food is always made the same each time. Always delicious. Thanks for being open during this tough time.

Wonderful place. Shannon was very nice. Fries cut fresh and fried, a large is enough to feed a family of 4. The Pizza Sub my enjoyed, states it was the best sub he has ever had. The Philly Cheese Steak sub always a favorite FOR ME. 12 in is enough to feed two people. Fresh lemonade is always a favorite, simple and tasty. Thank you.

Penn Station makes some excellent subs and fries for a slightly premium price. Their hot subs are super fresh and delicious, as are the fries. You'll have to spend a little more than you would other comparable places to get a full meal, but you're getting excellent food and service that will keep you coming back for more.

The Philly cheesesteak at Penn station is just okay is not authentic, we had real cheesesteak in Philly it is way better; quality was not worth the price, so not really what we were expecting, we found hair in my sub, asked for a new one! but if you are looking for a sub I would not go to Penn station - too expensive

Very good Philly sub. The staff is very nice and the service is prompt. Parking is a challenge due to limited spaces and construction in the area.

We had a chicken teriyaki and a Philly cheese steak. Both excellent. Careful because they serve them very hot. You need a couple of minutes before you bite into it

Great sandwiches that come out quickly. The two owners are very friendly and bring your food out to your table. The restaurant is exceptionally clean as well.

I really wish I got the names of the two gentlemen working on the food, they did a terrific job. They were friendly and attentive. And seemed to be genuinely happy to help. The sandwich was awesome and seemed to be a bit healthier then most of the other chicken parmigiana subs around. Great job guys. I appreciate the meal and the service!

Im new to the east coast and wad surprised to find out that pennstation subs was a corporate restaraunt. The franchise that i frequent on Renaissance blvd. Feels like a mom and pop place. The owners are so kind as well as their associates. There are a few young men that work there and they are consistently respectful and courteous even in the owner's absence. The comfortable family atmosphere and fantastic service deserves 10 stars but i could only give 5.

For $9.99 you're going to get a great Philly Cheese Steak, end of story. Ordered ahead of time, no problem. It tasted great and the order was complete and accurate. Can they get five stars the next time? We will see. Better than any other Hoagie off of 15/501? Absolutely. I would like to address some of the comments below: Having worked in the restaurant industry - sometimes a good experience can turn into a bad one based solely on the individuals working at the business. My experience was fine. Reviews hold a lot of weight for customers. Everyone deserves a second chance. After that, cut the cord.

Whoever had the idea to put pizza sauce on a philly cheese steak was brilliant, then add fresh cut fries.

Ordered a Reuben with hand cut fries. Staff were great . . . instead of just taking the order asked about how I'd like my sub made. Paid attention to the details and definitely cared about my experience. And it showed in the result. My sub was packed to bursting and absolutely delicious! They really DO use the GOOD STUFF . . . bread was fresh and had the perfect texture, meat juicy and hot, cheese as good as from a high end NY deli. The fries were more than an afterthought too. Really crispy outside and soft inside. Perfectly seasoned, and I love that they keep the skin on despite the extra work. Really gives them a great texture!

This place knows how to make a sub!!!! Let's start with the fresh soft delicious bread...I swear they make it the minute you order your sandwich lol. That's how fresh and delicious the bread is. The meats...I have only had the turkey provolone sandwich but the turkey is fresh shaved little pieces ( think Thanksgiving last bits of turkey) that are deliciously seasoned. The staff is so sweet and pleasant. The store is clean as well as the bathrooms. Will go again and again!!!

Always great sandwiches at Penn Station! Legendary cookies in my opinion as well! Hoping to move into the area (across the street) I'm not sure it's a good thing this location will be so close! haha
