I had to order one of their "famous" poor boy sandwiches. It was just a sub sandwich but I'm glad I ordered one. I found their soup way too salty. They have a taxidermy bear with a slot cut open in its back that you...More

Drew worked here for 7 years before he bought out the previous owner. He has added a smoker to create more flavorful meats, does a limited menu and does it very well. Sauce? You like sauce? The list of sauces grows longer and longer. Options...More

Fun atmosphere. Accommodating chef prepared my son a cheese quesadilla even though it wasn't on the menu. Nice wait staff. I really enjoyed my meal.

Had a great lunch at Pillers. Loved the poor boy, half a poor boy was more than enough, a third portion would have sufficed. The soup was really tasty and the whole meal was real comfort food on a miserable grey day.

The sandwich was very fresh and stuffed with everything and anything you could want in a poor boy/hoagie/what ever they are called in your part of the country. The whole grain bun was very good and a half sandwich was more than we could eat.

Charming decor, great service. The Poorboy sandwich--I especially like the one with assorted meat, but the other varieties are good--is addictive. I've probably eaten 50 of them over the years.

A good selection of beers, mostly in cans, only one on tap and a varied menu. We sampled several local brews with a poorboy and fries. Friendly staff and good service.
