Hoagie Trail

Hoagie_Trail_2014_TimelineHappy Birthday Hoagie Trail!

Last year the Tacony CDC created the Hoagie Trial to celebrate the world-class hoagies found in our community. This year the CDC is inviting you to help celebrate its first birthday and the only thing you need to bring is an empty stomach.

On Saturday April 26th our wonderful Hoagie Shops are offering a variety of discounts on their sandwiches. From delectable Italian hoagies to the classic Philly cheese steak and every other hoagie you can think of the Tacony Hoagie Trail is serving up the best sandwiches in the city at deals you cannot pass up.  Simply hop the train to the Tacony train station or grab your friend and their car and head to the Cottman exit of I-95 to enjoy a Saturday of stuffing your face with sandwiches you will write home about.
