After reading other reviews, we decided to give Alvin Ord's a try. Sandwiches come on either whole wheat or French round bread in three sizes (diameters). The bread really makes the sandwich. I had a Reuben and my wife had the French dip. Haven't had a sandwich that good in quite a while. There is limited seating inside but there... More

Words can not describe the way these sandwiches taste. Fresh delicious bread, meats, vegetables and the sweetest southern sweet tea! Service is wonderful with a southern charm and although it is a small space I think that adds to the charm.

Great service & amazingly big and tasty sandwiches! My husband used to come here often when he worked at the MCAS, so while back in SC we had to stop by. No wonder it's a favorite!

Always good sandwiches, worth the wait. The original sandwich is my favorite, the tradition, I think its called. Friend had large Rueben and it was kind of dry. Maybe stay away from the large sandwiches. The bread seems to get dry. A small sandwich is plenty for most people. They have daily specials. Just a few tables inside and a... More

Alvin's has some of the best sandwiches I think I've had. Great bread, baked daily, comes in three sizes. Place is small and crowded so it probably is a good idea to call. Several tables inside and out. Lunch time it's really busy. Sandwiches are really good and big.

Stopped in for lunch one day and was amazed. Small little shack on the side of the road doesn't look like much but has amazing sandwiches! Very impressed and will stop in again next time I am in town!

When it's marketed as a local favorite you hope it has some pizzazz but this missed the mark. Don't get me wrong, this place gets packed but when it comes down to it it's just an overpriced Schlotskys sandwich at the end of the day. The service and experience was less than wonderful for me but apparently it's a hit... More

Am sorry you had a bad experience...as it turns out Alvin Ord"s is older than Schlotskys so we're not the copy...please come back in the next time you're in town and we'll try to knock your socks off!!! More
