Of course it depends on what you order, but this is one of the last places in the country where I can quickly get a good sandwich made to order with fresh ingredients and a beverage for $5. Even though I'm not a vegetarian, I like their cheddar cheese sandwich in a whole wheat pita pocket with all of the... More

Stopped while headed to SIU with student. Appears as a mom and pop type place less than a mile from campus. Reasonable prices, and a selection of subs. Bread was fresh, staff was nice, atmosphere is a little cafeteria like. Nothing superb, but okay for getting something in your belly.

I have stopped in for lunch on the go before and got a pretty good sandwich. It wasn't anything too fancy but the sandwich was adequate in size and had good flavor. I felt it was a tad bit pricey but I don't think I'd let that stop me from visiting from time to time.

I am gluten sensitive and they do have a gluten free hoagie bun however I decided to get the chef salad. By adding a side order of their quinoa salad and putting that on top it became a gourmet salad. With the meat and cheese on it I was well satisfied. I and 3 guys had lunch. The place was... More

Locally owned, ingredients from local farms. A pleasant atmosphere. The menu can be a bit overwhelming, but just the first time. My husband's favorite is the Boskydell Bomber. I like the ham or turkey or roast beef hoagie. The pickles are great. Wish I had the recipe for making those. Simple fresh tasting food on fresh baked bread. Always nice... More

Fresh, fast, and delicious. It's a great place to grab a lunch, and far healthier than fast food options. You walk up and order your sandwiches for there or to go. We often grab them for a picnic before/after/during a hike at the state park.

Arnie's is a great place for sandwiches. Want a break from the Subway's and Jimmy John's? Arnie's has fresh, unadulterated, delicious food. At the office, we order it probably once a week, and they have the best delivery services. Their restaurant is pretty quaint as well. All-in-all, some of the best meals and friendliest service in Southern Illinois.
