Penn Station East Coast Subs has opened near 168th Street and West Center Road.

The location is part of a chain that has more than 300 restaurants in 15 states. Ohio delicatessen owner Jeff Osterfeld opened the first location in downtown Cincinnati in 1985 after a visit to Philadelphia, where he ate a Philly cheesesteak and decided it would be a hit with Ohio residents.

In addition to cheesesteaks, the restaurant serves a variety of other sub sandwiches, fresh-cut french fries and hand-squeezed lemonade, as well as wraps and salads.

It’s open 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sunday. You can order online at penn-station.com.

The Omaha location is the first in Nebraska.
