Hoagie trays - Philadelphia

Where's a good place to get hoagie trays for a party (not the Super Bowl). I was thinking of Primo's since one of the options needs to be a veggie that's not just a cheese sandwich. Any other suggestions? Another plus would be if they deliver to University City. But I wouldn't mind picking up if it's in and around Center City. Thanks!

  1. Sarcones - 9th and Catherine. Great bread, great meats, multiple veggie options like Rabe and Provolone, etc.

      second that- Primo is good, but sarcones is the best

      1. re: Bigley9

        Unless something has changed, Primo's uses Sarcone's bread. Personally I like Primo's better but they're both very good.

        1. re: Buckethead

          Are all the Primo's locations the same from a food quality point of view?

          1. re: Bigley9

            I've always liked the 15th & Ritner location the best, but the 22nd & Chestnut one is just as good. On my one and only visit to the one on 11th around Market I thought it wasn't as good as the other two.

              Thanks. I've never been so if I was going to one I wanted to go to the "right" one!

          Primos uses Sarcones rolls dont they?

          1. re: mddletown

            Doesn't say so on either Primo's or Sarcone's web sites, but Sarcone's says their list of "Carriers" is a work in progress. Primos may only use them at some locations (I can't believe they could use sarcones at all those locations, no one else would have any!)

        3. I was told at the 22nd & Chestnut location that all Primo's locations were required to use Sarcone's bread. The people at both the Welsh Rd. and Hatboro locations told me the same thing.

          1. I have had the hoagie trays from Campo's many times and they are always great. Mixed rolls, Sarcone and a traditional hoagie roll. Always fresh and something for everyone. They always put in one or two veggies but if you don't want them you could get something else. I have also had some of there cheesesteak and chicken trays. I already have mine ordered for the game. Also they deliver or dinning in. Never had a bad one from Campo's
