The small lunch spot opened about two weeks ago at 1703 S. 11th Street, borrowing heavily from the Italian sandwich tradition around these parts with some promising menu choices, if nothing flashy. Think chicken parm and other cutlet sandwiches, plus cheesesteaks, a handful of wraps and other standards from owner Joe Perri Jr. (Little Snuff).
Open seven days for eat-in, delivery and takeout at 8 a.m., closing Monday to Saturday at 5, Sunday at 1. Check the full menu here. No website yet.
We tried the Forget About It, a breaded chicken cutlet with sharp provolone, spinach and roasted peppers, and we’d definitely get it again.
Looks like it’ll make ya fat, in a good way
Adam Erace of the City Papersampled the Little Snuff’s Special, “a Sarcone’s roll stuffed with crispy, well seasoned chicken cutlets, thin shaved provolone, crunchy bacon and honey mustard, and it was really, really, really good.” He says Little Snuff himself is a vet of Stogie Joe’s, and in this case, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. Like Stogie’s, Little Snuff’s is the kind of place you’d order from if your out of town guests wanted authentic South Philly fare. It’s good and sticks to your ribs.
