“Best Sub Shop in Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Lil Dino's is always a great option for lunch. You will quickly come to recognize the staff (I think only three people work there in total) and the menu options. The subs are always freshly made and generously portioned. I must put in a recommendation for the pizza sub in particular. This restaurant also has the distinction of having (in my mind, obviously) the best fries in town. The waffle fries are a must get any time you stop in. Combine all of this with the inexpensive cost, and their incentive card (16 visits gets you a free 8" sub I believe), you have no real reason to not try it out! The only downside I can think of is the weird pay-per-view programs they have typically playing on the television, unless you are interested in new exciting bras! Give Lil Dino's a shot!

“Dirty, Poor food quality”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2011

Had the 16" Ruben it was served on 2- 8" white hogie buns. The pastrami was tough. The kraut was old tasting. Coated in thousand island. No swiss cheese. One restroom was out of order.The other filthy. The fiberglass wall panels were dirty as was the tile floor.

“Love Dino's!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2011

We love the subs at this little place. The owner is a master chef who retired here and bought this franchise. You can tell by the subs--they are way above normal quality.
