My first review said I'd be back - and I am! I came at the top of the lunch rush and waited in line but got called out by a new cook taking more orders. I think there were four humans taking and processing orders. This time I ordered their six inch Italian sub with lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo and... More

A short walk from the hotel my company uses, Classics is some place I try to visit when I can. The sandwiches are very good, fresh bread and ingredients. I had the Park Avenue, an Italian style sub with prosciutto, provolone,capicola and salami. And the Limeaide drinks are really good, really refreshing. The only downside is the place is small...

Great little old-school sandwich joint. Had a classic italian sub, with Limeade and chips. Much better than typical chain sandwich places. Not much curb appeal from the road, but worth stopping. Be aware that's it can be quite slow during lunch...long lines.

I needed a place for lunch after geocaching on my way to help at a charity race registration and this came up on my GPSr. It's fairly small and customers stand in line to order and then pick up and pay for their meal. OTOH, service is quite swift and very helpful and friendly. I ordered a gyro and found... More

This place is an older establishment that serves up various sandwiches. My wife and I had the cheese steak sandwich, dressed (lettuce, tomato, mayo, onions). We also had a limeade and split an order of fries. The food was made fresh to order, the limeade was great. The other sandwiches on the menu looked good. The cheese steak looked like... More

Stopped in for a quick bite with family after getting picked up from the airport. Sandwiches were great... individually prepared to order (I had the club and it was delicious). Their Limeades are FANTASTIC! Not too sweet and very refreshing. The order placing process seemed very confusing as I felt there was little communication between the staff that was there.... More

The Limeaids are a drawing card by themselves but the sandwiches are made fresh and there is a good variety to pick from including salads and soups. The steak and cheese are more like steak-ums but I would recommend the others.
