This place had nice portion sizes, not too big and not too small. We were able to get in and get out in a reasonable amount of time. The food tasted great and the waitress was very friendly. Would go there again.

Our family went for lunch several times during our initial vacations to the OBX. And each time it was a "spur of the moment decision," that in retrospect we should have gone elsewhere. Parking and getting out of the small lot during season is a challenge. The interior is what one would expect from a dive - spartan, crowded, and... More

Good solid lunch. We both had the Reuben sandwich. It was hot, tasty and filling. The wait staff is prompt and polite . Prices are exactly what you'd expect for a sandwich shop.

Ate here as we pulled into town. The Italian sub was served warm and everything about it was delicious. The waitress made lots of great suggestions and the service was above and beyond.
