This place is awesome! Get the hot salami and pay the extra dollar for the garlic bread. I will crave these sandwiches when I leave Saint Louis!

This is a no-frills, great service sandwich place. It is everything you'd want a mom & pop place to be. My favorite sandwich is the Italian Trio. The half size is more than enough. They have a decent outdoor eating area for anytime, but especially...More
