Great bread is the key and they have it! Banh mi are awesome but so are their traditional subs. Super friendly staff, everything is fresh and flavorful. Fantastic value, this will be another go to spot!

Darleen maintains the traditional subs but the real pleasure is the Vietnamese menu. Superb banmih sandwiches and fresh rolls and excellent pho. I hope she will continue to expand the Vietnamese menu.

I live nearby. Dropped in for a late lunch. Shrimp spring rolls: beautiful fresh ingredients. Execution: not great. Iceberg lettuce in huge pieces, roll too big, loosely packed and under-seasoned. Oddly chewy and tough. Again the ingredients and the sauce were great on their own....More

The food is fresh and the variety of subs, salads, pizza and Vietnamese specialties is a nice take on a sub shop. The meatballs are traditional, tender and juicy with a great tomato sauce on Banh Mi, a soft type roll that was delicious. Can't...More

Great selection of subs and sandwiches. I asked to have the bread toasted which was done very well. Also noted several Asian items on the menu.

The name doesn't fit the taste. Very good pizza and subs. The selection is endless and the price is just right. It's a little tricky to located but with the search.
