Nice little sandwich shop with lots of choices. A little confusing when you first walk in; you order first and then can choose from a huge selection of chips and drinks, find a seat and then wait. You pay for everything at the counter when...More

Very friendly service, delicious fresh food (I had a sub and soup and a sofa.). Cost was $12 and worth every penny. Not much seating but it was empty when we were there. Will definitely go again.....

Went there because of the good reviews. I had looked at the menu online but made the incorrect assumption it was abbreviated. The meat selection was very good but the items to add was limited and EACH cost extra. Yes extra for the arugula, cheese...More

They make good sandwiches (competitive prices) and lots of varitey. So, sandwiches are ok, but for the most part, they are sandwiches. Dipping sauce is why we go there!
