I like the idea that it is an old house that was converted to a walk in sandwich store. It makes one get curious and try it. I was impressed on how they make it. No fancy sandwich wrapped in paper. Best of all I love the sandwiches specially the house special. Humongous servings. I am glad they thought of... More

I have really only had the Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteaks and French Fries. Both are excellent. To me this is not really a restaurant; more of a sandwich shop type place. Not much ambience, but it is clean and nice. When I been there around lunch time the place can be crowded.

This place can be hit or miss. I've been eating here on and off for about 7 years. Lunch time during the week can be busy, but it's slow since they don't always seem to have enough staff to make the sandwiches. Even calling ahead will have you waiting once you get there. As for the food quality, I would... More

By far my favorite sandwich shop in the NYC and Princeton area, a testament to how delicious the food is given the number of competing options available. Also the least expensive for seriously generous servings of meats, cheese, and vegetables on each grinder (hot sandwich) or hoagie (cold sandwich). The bread is what sets the sandwiches here apart. Not sure... More

The sandwiches here are all good, particularly the steak or Italian sandwiches. But what sets this place apart is the bread. It is amazing. Skip the fries if you aren't eating there. They don't travel well. But you can't go wrong with any sandwich. The wings are OK as well.

I was looking for something quick after an afternoon appointment and came across this place on the review sites. So many reviews said I had to try the buffalo chicken (some were specific to the cheesesteak) hoagie. I went with the regular buffalo chicken because I'm not in to American cheese. The sub tasted just like buffalo chicken dip -... More

During my 10 day stay in Plainsboro I went 6 or 7 times for lunch to this place. They serve excellent sandwiches and good salads. The staff is very friendly and the prices reasonable.

Over the years I have eaten here many times but not for a while. I ate lunch here in December 15. I had a half of a turkey sub with provolone cheese, tomato, lettuce and pickles. It was delicious with very good bread. The prices have gone up so with a small bag of pretzels and a diet coke it... More

We ate here several times during June & July 2015. The place is small, does not look fancy from the outside, but the food is excellent and the cheesesteaks are the BEST!!! For some strange reason, zoning laws limit them to just a few tables, so most of the inside is open space. The staff are very friendly and the... More
