Every day for two years I've walked past Adams Express convenience store without a second thought, until somebody told me they had the best hoagies in Philadelphia. I told this person to go eat some real hoagies, preferably deep in south philly at a place with 4 or 5 fat guys in patriotic t-shirts standing outside.
Then late one night I noticed Adam's was open and got myself a "godfather" (pepperoni, capacola, hard salami, provolone) and it was fantastic. Adam's hoagies come on Sarcone's bread with a perfect amount of meat & toppings, and a wide selection of traditional and not so traditional sandwiches (the "boardwalk" comes with buffalo chicken, hot pepper cheese and thousand island dressing?)
Adams is also a great place to find things like mexican coffee, gourmet chips, and the New York Times. Reasonable prices too...I'm never going to Wawa again!
