This is the place I go when I want a good sandwich...no doubt about it. Quality meats and products. My favorite is the Italian combo! Be prepared however to pay about $10 a sando! This is not your cheapie sandwich!

Rinaldi's has good hot or cold sandwiches. Usually I get them to go, but there are plenty of table & chairs, too. Fair warning; it get incredibly busy during lunch on weekdays!

I do not like corporate restaurants, I usually eat at mom and pop places. If you are in the mood for a sandwich and can't make up your mind on what to get, you will have a tough time choosing something here. They offer a 'you name it we got it' sandwich menu. I ordered the Reuben six inch sandwich... More

I've always enjoyed the sandwiches and sometimes Polly in a pan from there. Ingredients are always fresh and the courteous staff work diligently to meet the lunch time rush. The taste of the food and the portions are consistently good. No surprises so far. I have been going there for the past 10 years.

Just went there yesterday and ordered 2 sandwiches for a quick lunch on the go. Had the chicken salad and it was served on a unique bun, kinda square, fresh, and perfect for the sandwich because they let you add other toppings and the bun held up great! Some places the bun starts falling apart under the weight of added... More

Sandwiches always a winner. Never misses. I just had a Monster which is a delicious Roast Beef hot sandwich. I also like the USC -prosciutto sandwich and chicken salad sandwich. My husband likes the Italian and also the hot Fat Boy. My son comes from Back East and needs a sandwich from this restaurant or when we fly...take Rinaldi's sandwiches... More
