On our way to the national championship game and stopped in. My wife got the grilled cheese w/tomato and I got the hot pastrami on wheat. We also got potato salad and fruit with a side of alpine cake. Kind of confused when ordering with everyone making the food. After a few minutes we were ready to eat and it... More

Flew into Tampa on Saturday for the National Championship game and based on TA reviews had to stop by. Totally worth the visit. Interesting lunch experience. Place your order, wait for your preparer to call your name. He or she will confirm your order and then custom prepare your order. My friend said the turkey salad was a little bland... More

Call ahead, otherwise it's a long wait! Coke products and overly flavored teas for $2.00 plus for a medium. I spent $ 42.70 for 2 sandwiches, a salad and 3 teas self serve. When I asked the greeter where the tea was he said its next to others. Then he said no real tea is available ever... Interesting. Anyway, back... More

Be patient, it's worth the wait. There are no bad choices here, everything is outstanding. I love their Cuban, and oh the cake!!! At the insistence of a friend, I ordered the Alpine cake slice. It doesn't look all that special, yellow cake with chocolate frosting, but it was a serious slice of heaven.

I go here on a regular and get there Club or Turkey Club and it's awesome. I also love their cupcakes and sugar cookies. It's pricey, but worth it.

Wright's is amazing, and everyone in South Tampa knows it- hence, you are going to battle for parking and wait in long lines during prime business (lunch) hours. Everyone knows this- but the reward is worth the struggle! Everything on their menu is fantastic- I generally order the Pecan Chicken platter, but their sandwiches are incredible too! Don't even get... More

My first visit could have been smoother if there was some signage or clear visual clues as to the entrance of restaurant. To be fair, they are under construction, but still open to diners and take-out patrons. The entrances and exits need to be clearly indicated. Anyway, the food. I had one of their best sandwiches and a soda. The... More

Consistent performer at the top of their game! Very busy at lunch which can't be helped. Food quality is always high. Never been disappointed.

One of the best best kept secrets has been out now for a long time. They are undergoing an expansion without losing the principles of their success. Every customer gets individual service making each sandwich with fresh ingredients. Salads and Sides are excellent. Desserts be sure to take home. My first visit was in 1987... It's just as delicious as... More
