I KNOW this is a loaded question. But I'm anxious to hear what the chowhounds think.
I have a friend flying in from California next month to attend a conference. She used to live in Philadelphia and, more than anything else, craves a GREAT Italian hoagie.
Not being a hoagie freak, I'm not current on which spots are the best these days. I used to love the place at 2nd and Federal, and I remember there being a fabo place down near 17th and Ritner.
Which are your favorite spots and why?
