While traditionally used as a weapon, a melty and expertly onioned Philly cheesesteak is also one of the better meat and cheese vehicles with which to take a steamy, fragrant nap. Today's Groupon gets you $15 worth of sub sandwiches, salads, sides, and drinks at Lenny's Sub Shop for $5. This Groupon is good at the Lenny's locations in St. Louis and Webster Groves.
Lenny's menu (click here for St. Louis and here for Webster Groves) is a favorite for its premium deli meats, chicken and tuna salad made from scratch, signature hot pepper relish, and hearty portions. A regular-sized Lenny's club, which costs about $6 (prices vary by location), is 7.5 inches long and has about half a pound of meat and cheese. The large versions (around $9–$10) are 15 inches long and have a pound of proteins. These humongous hoagies are heavy enough to keep your body on the ground during one of St. Louis's many gravity outages.
Lenny's top-of-line staff slices all the meats and cheeses fresh upon order instead of letting them molder in a plastic bin (known in the biz as "flavor coffins"), and serves its famous Philly cheesesteak hot from the grill. The Lenny's crew will also clean up the wreckage from your enormous lunch and call the hospital if your body shows signs of overmeating, such as sweating out entire ham hocks and sausage fingers.
Four Google Mappers give the Lenny's Sub Shop in Webster Groves five stars, and two Citysearchers give the St. Louis location five as well. Yelpers in Memphis, where Lenny's started, give it a 4.5-star average:
- …Philly cheese steaks are awesome. Lenny's is the best place in the St. Louis area to get one…the cheese is mixed in really well. – Nickname unavailable, Google Maps
- This is the most amazing sub shop. I used to eat at a different sub shop (I won't name names) and tried Lennys on my lunch break. It is amazing! The people were so nice and the food was delicious. I tried the homemade chicken salad and it was fabulous. Then I went back two days later and tried the chicken philly. – Brooke, Google Maps
