Great pizza and homemade sausage. Haven't had a good pizza since leaving New Haven 9 years ago. The white clam had a nice twist- lemon slices.

The creations tend to lean toward expertly crafted (and authentically flavored) Asian - Vietnamese/Thai but there are also a huge range of other cuisines represented. My wife's jerk was FIERY as described, and not at all dumbed down.

I had the "Hanoi Hoagie." I am from Philly, so a hoagie is somewhat sacred. We also have a huge selection of Vietnamese restaurants, so I was able to overlook the fact that the rolls were not as authentic as I am used to. They were quite good for the area. This take on the Bahn Mi was done with beautifully marinated tender lemongrass beef, and all the usual accompaniments (fish sauce, cilantro, cuke etc,)

Pork spring rolls were also piping hot and authentic.

Prices are in the $9-13 range, and the sandwiches are not huge.. probably about 7", so if you are a hearty eater, and app is probably in order (we did get a scoop of nice orzo salad, but not enough to fill a hungry belly.) Portions are probably reasonable and healthy for a non-glutton, but the aim here is obviously quality ingredients and authentic preparation as opposed to "cheap and filling." Service is casual and good humored.

Highly recommended as a memorable "beach dive."

The wait may be a little long once you place your order but oh my, is it ever worth the wait. Food is delicious and pricing is good. Staff very friendly. Made our last night in Folly enjoyable.

It seems impossible that this couple can do so many types of ethnic food so masterfully well. They offer Vietnamese, Caribbean, Lowcountry, Thai and Korean "sammies" - AND Neopolitan pizza. Pad Thai, a special that day, was the best we've ever had; SO flavorful and plenty of shrimp. Banh Xeo Vietnamese pancake with pork and shrimp, also a special, was SO tasty and perfectly done. Chicken waffle and Po Boy both were also terrific.
And the couple's warm personality and sense of humor shine through in the minimalist décor.
We can't wait to go back to try the pizza!
The place is tiny, so if you can't get a table, consider "to go" so that you can experience all these wonderful flavors.

The Wich Doctor is a classic hole in the wall kind of place that doesn't look like much, but has a tremendously talented chef in the tiny kitchen cooking exactly what he wants exactly how he wants to do it. Check out the online menu and if his kind of thing appeals to you, then go and you will be absolutely blown away. I wish I could give this place six stars. Just spectacularly excellent.
