Hoagies (sometimes called "subs" in other parts of the country) are another popular Philadelphia choice. They're made from assorted meats, cheeses or vegetable toppings on an Italian roll.

We evaluated an Italian hoagie from a popular chain. This sandwich was heavy, carrying 1/2 pound of meat and cheeses. Ingredients included three types of ham, provolone cheese, salami, sliced tomato, raw onions, shredded lettuce, sweet peppers, oil and vinegar and mayonnaise.

This sandwich also tipped the scales when it came to calories, too; it has about 1440 calories and 90 grams of fat.

No question: Italian hoagies offer a good taste sensation, but you might want to split one with a friend!

Note: Be aware that ingredients and cooking methods can vary, so the foods you order may not match these nutritional counts exactly.
