“Just keeps getting better...”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

Besides the fact one of their sandwiches is being considered as the best in the country by the Food Channel, the "steak and cheese" is also one of the best in the world. The contest sandwish is the duck on sour dough with pickled green tomatoe. Love this place, the chef, the staff - both kitchen and wait. THE place for lunch, and they don't close at the one or two o'clock bell...sometimes I've gone by after three and they are still there serving their loyal customers. Do not miss this for lunch and/or dinner. Downtown jewel...and a bus that can now take one from the new court house right to their door in seven minutes. Always thinking about the customer. Hurrah for this great place of culinary delights and fresh ginger ale - just cannot be beat!

“Awesome, even if self service”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Great new place downtown, amazing soups and sandwiches. You do have to go the counter and pick it up when they call you, but it is worth it.

“Great lunch spot!”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

Really good lunch spot in the heart of downtown. While they have a good amount of options on their menu, and do those options very well, I still feel like their menu is somewhat limited. Almost every sandwich they make is hot, for instance, and I'm not a huge fan of hot sandwiches. Also, everything is sandwiched between two slices of bread, or rolled up in a piece of bread. Much of their menu is fried (falafels, shrimp), and a good amount of their food is less than healthy (steak sandwich, burger, pot pies).

In total, I highly recommend Olio. My issue is more with their menu and their lack of substantive choices than their food. They are very good chefs and I do recommend Olio.
