Ate here twice. Both times got excellent sandwiches. My husband got squaw bread, something he had in his younger days but can't get at home. First time we sat outside with our dogs. Very friendly staff.

We stopped here for lunch after a day at the zoo. The place was SUPER busy, but the service was fast and friendly. We ordered a cheeseburger, TAB sandwich, and a pastrami sandwich. The prices were about average and so was the food. I was a tad disappointed with the quality of the food. I hate to leave negative reviews,... More

I got the pastrami special (can't recall the name)with pickles, pepperoncini. It looked fantastic and the place itself was really clean and laid back. However, my sandwhich was SUPER SUPER salty. Not sure if it was just an overly salty batch of pastrami, but they can't have meant for the sandwich to taste that way. I only ate half and... More

This is our favorite when we come up to Big Bear two or three times a year. We plan our visit to include having a sandwich here whenever we arrive. In six days we have been there twice!! The sandwiches are always fresh, loaded with meat, and very filling. Their French fries are good but not great. Haven't tried any... More

We were staying at a rental and this was the closest lunch place once out of our neighborhood. It was fairly crowded so we figured let's try it. It's your typical sandwich place, lots of all kinds of folks. Good food, nothing fancy. Hit the spot for the afternoon. We'll probably try something else next time just for variety but... More

Excellent food here!!! I recently eat here, the food is fantastic!!! One of the best philly steak sandwiches I have ever eaten. The turkey sandwich was very good and great quality of the meat. All the ingredients tasted fresh. We eat out doors to enjoy the views. The service was very good, the staff was very nice, prompt service, and... More

couldn't ask for a better diner after a day of skiing. My family stopped at this place up close to Bear Mountain. It's a small diner that serves great American food. Burgers, sandwiches, chilly beans. Delicious, friendly staff.

This place is my absolute favorite when coming to our BIG BEAR getaway! Love the Reuben and tuna melt! The bread is always fresh and delicious and the meats and cheese they use are top quality!

Wonderful sandwich. Great people working at this location. Number of sits are very limited but it's worth your time. Make sure you give it a try.
