Ordered a doner but sadly the server was hotter than the food & the chilly sauce. Very disappointing

My grandfather and I often eat here before I go to work. Everything here is delicious from the pizza to the burgers to the subs. You get a good amount of food here for a decent price, service is friendly and speedy, and it's a great place for a family meal or hanging out with friends. There's a pub within... More

Recommended by several locals and did not disappoint. Great subs, pizza, and burgers. This local restaurant is worth checking out. Very crowded for lunch but fast friendly service. I highly recommend for lunch if you are in the area.

We needed a quick lunch, they split the full Italian sub for us and even divided the potato chips that come with it. Very good sub, we ate there twice in the week we were there.

I could eat here every night and order something different. They have good subs, pizza and fried chicken. Prices are reasonable too! We vacation in Southport once a year and I always make it a priority to eat here.

Since we live here we come here often for lunch or takeout lunch. After trying most of the other sub shops in Southport and Oak Island, we feel that this is by far the best. They also have great fried chicken, pizza, gyros, etc. Very casual, but lots of seating.

Thank nadwinston
