At sandwich shop ‘Are U Hungry’ in downtown State College, the restaurant’s specialty is known as “fat sandwiches.” There’s steak, cheese, a chicken finger, 2 mozzarella sticks, bacon and ranch dressing in the “Fat Lion.”

Zahi Elhaj said, “They have very unique names as well. Some of them are…probably can’t mention them on the radio. That’s what makes us a late night place, too.” He opened the restaurant in 2005.

Born in Lebanon, Elhaj first moved to the United States to attend Rider University in New Jersey. He dropped out of college as a senior to open “Are U Hungry.”
