“Hands down best sandwiches in Downtown Denver”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

These are not your average deli sandwich. The Expedition -- Roast Beef -- is a good basic Roast Beef sando with avocado. The French bread is my favorite as it is soft, but chewy -- well done. The Bushwhacker -- curried chicken salad sandwich -- is the best chicken salad I have ever enjoyed. They have a sandwich that is Thanksgiving leftovers -- dressing, turkey and cranberry -- that is one of my favorites. The soup is also made from scratch and delicious. If you don't like any of their pre-selected sandwiches you can always make your own. I have tried about 9 different sandwiches and they have all been delicious. They now serve beer on tap and liquors. They also deliver trays of half-sandwiches to your office for lunch meetings. We did it and they were right on time and sandwiches were well made. This is one of the best fast casual lunch options downtown Denver. My only tip is don't get a pickle if you get the sandwich to go. It can be a messy wet mess when you unwrap your sandwich. Otherwise though this place is great!

“Best sandwich I've ever had”
Reviewed 12 October 2012

Order the Dirty Bird. It's absolutely the best sandwich I've ever had. It's a toasted turkey sandwich with all sorts of good stuff stacked inside it. Yummy.
