Grabbed lunch here on our first day in DC. It was located right around the corner from our hotel. Good, fresh tasty sandwiches. Not expensive. Fast pleasant service. Love all the toppings you add, at no extra cost.

In an area of expensive restaurants, this is just what we needed - a great sandwich shop that fills them thick and has a great choice of fillings. Loved the pizza filling!

We were in DC back in December, and it was freezing. We ordered the chilli, the chicken pot pie soup, broccoli and cheese soup, and the mac and cheese. Everything was delicious! I would visit the place again!

I go here once a week. The sandwiches are freshly made and the service for takeout fast, particularly given the number of people there at lunch. Great food; highly recommend!

Staff were very friendly and took care top provide good sandwiches to take the edge off our empty stomachs. Not a dinner destination. Grab a bite for now.

We stopped for a quick dinner and had a turkey-cheese and a skinny sandwich. My cheesy broccoli soup was good and hot, however our tomato soup, that was already in a cup and not served from the pot, was cold. When we asked if it could be heated we were told "no" and there wasn't a microwave oven in the... More

I entered the place given the amount of movement seen from the outside. They have a very efficient system for ordering and serving. Quality and taste? Fair enough. Going back every day? No way. There must be at least similar options.
