Lou's may not be the grandest restaurant in Norristown, but it is the home of the town's signature dish: the Zep. The Zep is similar to a hoagie, but features a single meat and no lettuce, and Lou's has been serving them for nearly eight decades.

CORROPOLESE BAKERY & DELI
2014 Old Arch Rd

Corropolese is a name that is synonymous with tomato pie. Not to be confused with pizza, tomato pie features only a dusting of romano cheese atop the homemade sauce. For those looking for something a little more familiar, Corropolese does offer cheesy options.
