Probably the best sub chain in Indy. Hook and Ladder is outstanding. Service is generally friendly and efficient and friendly. Much better than Subway.

The location can be pretty hard to get in and out of depending on traffic and what time of the day you go. Its was clean and the staff was friendly. Great sandwiches.

First time I have been in this sub chain. Got the meatball sub and it was legit. The place seem to be well run with competent staff.

My family and I decided to try these subs, after always going to Subway to eat. Bad Choice! Unsavory and bland ! Expensive as well. Very pricey and no value for families. High countertops while preparing sandwiches, so not a good thing! You can't see what's being done with your food! No toppings offered! Subway much better choice!!!

The salads have romaine, but they are skimpy on additional ingredients such as tomatoes, red peppers, etc.

Didn't see the particular location I visited on S. Illinois between Maryland and Georgia in downtown Indy however the food is fantastic! Great location for a quick meal. Love the local FD decor showing off IFD station 13 apparatus as this is the nearest firehouse to this location. Good good at reasonable prices and lots of good sandwich options including... More

I think this chain has the title for now...best sub shop in town. Always taste fresh and plenty of meat on the sandwich.

Staff was very friendly and the place very clean. Sandwiches are good but nothing special, not a lot of choices to add to your sandwiches.

Thank Bob H
