If you have only a 30 minute lunch don't even think about eating in. I ordered a French dip. I asked them to expedite the order as I was in a time crunch. After 20 minutes still no food. It took them another few minutes to pack it up for me as I was out of time. I made it... More

We showed up about ten minutes before closing. We were greeted with a friendly smile and our order was taken without a hint of sadness that they almost made it to closing without a customer. The service was fast and the sandwiches were good. Definitely a better alternative to Subway etc...

When we walked in, there were numerous tables that hadn't been wiped down, the floor was unswept and covered with food/crumbs. It was 3:30 pm, so they hadn't just had a lunch rush or anything that would have accounted for the mess.No one was at the counter and didn't greet us for quite a few minutes then the gal that...

The restaurant is very popular at lunchtime, obviously. It is busiest between noon and 1:00, try to go before or after that time frame for best service. I usually eat here about once a week, I highly recommend the French Dip sandwich with potato salad. They also have soups and fries and chips etc. Self serve soft drinks and teas.... More

We have had the pleasure of eating here several times now, and are never disappointed. As other reviews say, the bread is fresh and perfect, and the sandwich choices are varied and delicious. The soups that we have had are also great, especially on cold winter or Fall days. Suggest trying the BBQ cheesesteak sandwich,,,it is out of this world... More

I've been here twice- the first time I thought it was mediocre but the second time I swore I would never go back. The fries were pretty good but my sandwich was just terrible. I got the veggie both times (their only vegetarian option) and it was lackluster, to say the least. It came with avocado and cream cheese, watery... More

Am no sandwich diva...but, was shocked at how good this experience was! The bread was soooo fresh and all the ingredients combined so well, that I gasped to realize fast food could hold any new surprise. Will add this place as a new favorite and recommend as a great alternatlve!
