“Excellent sandwiches, slow service”
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Reasons to go: high quality ingredients make Southside's sandwiches worth the stop. Small and homey, very clean.
Reason to skip: do not go unless you have some time to spend. Been there 3 times for a lite dinner bite and it takes almost a half hour for simple sandwiches. Then, getting one's check is a chore. If you are easily aggravated by sloooow service, go elsewhere.

“Nice place to have lunch”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Someone local took me here for lunch--it's apparently a favorite with people who work in the area because it was packed on a drizzly, offseason weekday. It remained packed the whole time we were there, but the service was very quick. The crab cake sandwich was very tasty--lump meat with minimal filler, although next time I will get it without the bread. The French fries were also good and even the small size was plenty for one.

If you find yourself close to Ocean City around lunchtime, stop here before you cross the bridge--you will get a much better sandwich, and at a better price, than you would in OC proper.

“Great Sandwiches, Eat In or Take Out”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

This is our go-to lunch place when we need some sandwiches for a picnic or to take on the road. My personal favorites are the Italian Cold Cut Sub and the Philly Cheese Steak, both of which are to die for. My wife likes the Philly Cheese Steak but without the cheese (grin) and they do a great job with it despite the lack of one of the best ingredients (Cheez-Wiz forever!) and they never complain about changing their prize-winning recipe.

It's run by very friendly people and we always have fun catching up with them when we go in to order.

“We love this place”
Reviewed 31 July 2013

Great food and good value. I visit relatives in the West OC area and we go here frequently. Very friendly with great specials and a happy hour that you can't beat. It's a small homey deli atmosphere. Great Fries...Try the crab cakes too!
