Penn Station East Coast Subs has been awarded the honor “Best in Cincinnati” in three food categories; Best Cheesesteak, Best French Fries, and Best Sub Sandwiches. The Best of Cincinnati poll was conducted in February by the popular print and Web publication City Beat. There were more than 18,000 votes cast, making this the largest poll in the award’s 14 years of existence.

“We are grateful to the thousands of customers and fans who took time to vote,” says Craig Dunaway, President of Penn Station, Inc. “Our customers tell us our insistence on fresh ingredients and our grilled-to-order taste keeps them coming back again and again.”

“Penn Station is dedicated to building strong relationships with its customers and the community,” says John Doyle, president of the local Cincinnati franchise advertising cooperative. “We support numerous nonprofit organizations, plus we are very active with the Cincinnati Reds. It feels great to see the community support us as we try to support them.”

When founder Jeff Osterfeld opened up the first Penn Station in Cincinnati in 1985, the original menu only had four sandwiches. The grilled Philadelphia Cheesesteak became an instant hit with customers and remains a popular choice today.
