My title says it all. I also find the staff cheerful, pleasant and ready to be of help. One reviewer asked "why would you pick a sandwich shop (when all around you are good restaurants)?" I say because the food is fresh, fast and delicious. Families with young kids would love the relaxed atmosphere but feel under pressure re their... More

This is a nice bright sandwich place with cheery and slightly retro decor. Think of the Subway chain with somewhat tastier bread and very fresh lettuce. My guess is that if you like Subway you will find this healthy casual dining choice to be a step up. I guess my question is when you are surrounded by dozens of places... More

I hadn't been to one in years since I moved to New England, so I had to indulge. It was worth it. The restaurant could use a deep clean, but the service was friendly, and sandwich tasted exactly how I remember.

This quick stop never disappoints - no matter what city you are in! Great sandwiches for great prices. After walking around the CofC campus and getting hungrier than we realized, this go-to hit the spot for us in a hurry!

Got a couple big and delicious subs for $6 to take on our travels for lunch later on. Great spot, right by College of Charleston and King St.

The sandwich was on par with all other Jimmy Johns, but the staff was not very friendly. We were the only ones there and just not customer friendly.

Just your average sandwich shop. I think there meat portions are small and the sandwich has way too much bread, in my humble opinion.
