Been meaning to try this for a long time, finally went there after tennis the other day for lunch. Everyone had something different, everyone enjoyed it, and 3 out of 4 couldn't finish and took food home. Deservedly popular and unassuming spot.

Got a big, thick sandwich here filled with lots of meat and cheese and extras, plus a really good honey mustard sauce. It was toasted so the hoagie bun was crisp on the outside, soft in the inside. The price was under $8 and was...More
