A window was broken out with an unknown object in an attempt to gain access to the building. Police do not know if entry was actually made. It was also unknown as of Wednesday if anything was stolen.

I would like to see store owners, empty the cash register at closing time. What are safe's used for? I worked in a store for 9 yrs. the only money left in the register was $10.00 in singles and change for over night. During the day there was never over $100 in the register.

You're right, but it does no good to blame the victim..The crime (as I'm sure you'd agree) was still unjustified---unless they wanted one of their great hoagies!

T o go to Gabriel's and not get a hoagie is a crime indeed!

No, the real crime is what they serve up on a bun.

I liked them better with the buns they used before.

I agree...their buns are always dry and fall apart. Not to mention you have to order "extra" cheese to even know there is cheese on it.

I can understand somebody breaking into Gabriels. Their steak hogies are awsome.

The cheap, WONDER BREAD buns do not help either. This place cannot even hang with Izzy's , let alone a 'real' hoagie shop like Pat's or Geno's in Philly. I find it humorous when people say that Gabriel's is one of the best they have had! What a joke!

Anybody who DOES think they are awesome....has never had any good food. I have had hoagies from a gas station, that have tasted better. Sorry you dont like the truth.

They are awesome harry. Worked at GM Powertrain Willow Run for 33 years and they were a staple for us many of us, usually at least once a week. Been retired for 8 years and go over once in a while and they're just as good now. Anyone who doesn't think they are awesome just doesn't know what a good hoagie is.
