Cheap eats. That's what Very's was know for around campus and getting anything that was covered with sauce and cheese. All you can eat spaghetti was always a plus for the starving artist within me. Don't forget about that amazing garlic cheese bread.

This place is nothing fancy at all, but I've NEVER had a bad meal here - all have been consistently excellent. Prices are reasonable, and the people are wonderful. Just don't expect fancy.

I've been going to Very's for several years now. Once I found out that I could get a Fair sausage dog without the Fair being here, I was hooked!! The pizza is pretty amazing as well!!! I will say if you're getting to-go please make sure your order is correct before leaving!!

I have been in Columbia 7 years and heard from many that Very's was the place to get a great philly steak sandwich. It was. I had the philly with the salad bar and was so full I had to take half home. Shout out to Rachael the hostess with the mostess.

Ate here with my family for the first time. Cheesesteak was excellent! It was very hot and fresh when it hit the table. Staff was very friendly too. Will definitely return.

I have lived in Columbia, SC for many years and had never dined here. At lunch today, I had an incredibly delicious Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. I asked the waitress to have the chef add bacon, so delicious. The fries were not my cup of tea, but the sandwich overrode my indifference to the fries. The food was delivered quickly. I... More

My husband and I love this place!! This visit I got the cheesesteak hoagie and he got chicken alfredo. My husband is very peculiar about his alfredo sauce, so our waitress even let him try a bit of it before he ordered to make sure he would approve...he loved it. The sauce had a nice consistency and a wonderful flavor.... More

I saw this place on Two Notch road, and stopped in. The owner is from Philly, and he knows how to make a real Philly Cheesesteak. No microwaved meat like the chain places, this place serves a real grilled sub loaded with real steak and real cheese. Juicy tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, and grilled onions on a delicious soft hoagie roll.... More

I have been to Very's and always ordered pasta. On this visit for lunch, I ordered the Greek salad with chicken. This was without a doubt the worse Greek salad I have ever had. Sliced black olives from a can. Pale tomatoes and mushy cucumbers. All topped with very hot, chicken that was tough and filled with griddle. I will... More

Great food - my family and I have visited many times since moving to Columbia and it never disappoints. Salad bar is always fresh and good! My husband loves the lasagna special and I love the mushroom Swiss burger. We both love the Philly cheesesteak sandwich!!
