Scranton, Pennsylvania: Joe Biden's Favorite Sandwich Shop

Until he became President and surrounded by Secret Service agents, Joe Biden would stop by this tiny shop just for its Italian hoagies, then schmooze and reminisce.

Hanks Hoagies

1224 Woodlawn St., Scranton, PA
I-81 exit 188, just north of the I-84 merge. Turn south onto PA-347/N. Blakley St. Drive south a half-mile. Turn right at the Fidelity Bank (no stoplight) onto Electric St. Drive nine blocks (about one mile). Turn right at the stoplight onto N. Washington Ave. Take the fourth right (at the stop sign) onto Woodlawn St. Drive up the hill and you'll see Hanks Hoagies on the right, in a little vine-covered building -- an old business in a residential neighborhood.
