Good Hoagie in Pinellas County?

Is there anywhere in Pinellas County that has good Philly style hoagies? I miss having a good Italian hoagie or Turkey hoagie....have had some halfway decent ones in the Tampa Bay area in the past, but I'm looking for better ones. As a side note, it would be nice if they had sweet peppers also.....not banana peppers, but the sweet pickled bell peppers you get on hoagies.

  1. Felice Italian Pork & Deli.Great seeded roll like Sarcones in Philly. Not sure about the sweet peppers, though.

        I was at Felice years ago to pick up some procuitto, but didn't even notice they sold sandwiches. I will have to try that (I live in the Eastlake Woodlands area) and Williams. Actually, I work down in Pinellas Park and have another house just off of 38th Ave North. Thanks for the suggestions.

      2. i haven't had it yet, but i hear Big Jim's in Largo is supposed to be pretty good. He used to own a a place in Philly.

          I have been hitting Big Jim's lately and have been pretty happy with it. Got the full size cheesesteak the first time. The second time I got an Italian Beef. Both were not the finest I have ever had but for the Tampa Bay area, they are pretty darn good. And get some fries!

        2. Delco's on Main St. in Dunedin is your best bet for Philly style hoagies and cheese steaks. Just as an FYI they are cash only.

          1. Since you work in Pinellas Park, have you tried Colonial Corner on 49th Street just south of Park Blvd? They have an excellent cheesesteak. Haven't had their hoagie but I'm thinking if the cheesesteak is that good....

            For hoagies (I'm a Philly native), I like Original Pizza. They are a small local chain, and I frequent the one on Treasure Island, so can't speak for their other locations, but their Italian is always on excellent bread. My hubby gets that (I get the cheesesteak which is good but not quite as good as Colonial's), so don't know for sure about the peppers.

            Happy hunting!

              Thank you for the suggestions. I've heard of Delco.....I've never heard anything about Colonial Corner, but I have driven by it hundreds (or thousands) of times. I will definitely have to stop in and try it one of the times I'm around there during the daytime (I work nights).
