Hawaii Mom Blog: Charley's Grilled Subs

Charley's Grilled Subs

In honor of National Philly Cheesesteak month, I headed over to Charley's Grilled Subs at the Pearl Harbor Navy Exchange Food Court (which is open to the public) to try a Philly Cheesesteak sub for the very first time.

I am familiar with the concept since Philly cheesesteak subs are featured on food shows all the time, but I've never tried one. I think I've been putting them off for so long because I'm afraid of liking them so much and getting hooked on them. Eating subs like these on a regular basis would definitely sabotage my boot camp training.

So here it is - the Philly cheesesteak sub - steak, provolone cheese, grilled onions, lettuce, and tomato. As I had suspected, this sub was delicious! The sub came out hot and fresh. The meat was tender and juicy. There was a lot of cheese, but it did not overpower the taste of the steak.

Since I knew the sub was going to give me more than my daily allotment of the "bad stuff", I ordered plain french fries, instead of the fries with bacon and cheddar cheese. Maybe on my next visit to Charley's, I'll try the fries with all the fixins. The fries also came out hot and fresh, not soggy. I had to add salt, but I add salt every time I eat french fries.

For those who are a little more health-conscious, Charley's offers different kinds of chicken subs - I think I'll try one of those the next time, with my bacon and cheddar cheese fries.

Thanks to Charley's, I don't have to fly all the way to Philadelphia to try their world famous Philly Cheesesteaks!

Thank you to Charley's for providing the $5 gift certificate for this review.

  1. I'm not a big fan of cheese steaks for some reason. But they sure do look good. Happy Easter to you and your family :)
