Aside from the amazing sandwiches that change rotations all year round so that you get the best of everything; the friendly faces and smiles you receive when you walk in the door make the experience one of a kind. We order through my work quite frequently and they have absolutely no problem handling our 10+ orders at a time, which... More

I enjoyed a delicious lunch at Darwin. Inside the restaurant is small so I would recommend take out or getting there early. The buffalo mac and cheese was lovely a well as the pot pie soup which came with a generous serving of bread. The prices were very reasonable particularly considering the food was fresh and healthy. Parking can be... More

Dropped in about an hour before closing. Business was still pretty steady. I ordered the Cubano: Virginia ham, shredded pork, swiss, dijon, mayo and pickles on a sesame seed roll. It was excellent! Not a huge sandwich, but filling. As a side I had the sour cream and onion potato salad. It was rich and creamy, the potatoes were perfectly... More

Food was average, and prices were on the higher side. Food tastes excellent though. Lots of variety, great for families, co-workers and friends. The biggest con is the small location- not much room-if any for a sit down and eat ordeal.

Hands down, this is the best sandwich place in all of Syracuse. They are very inventive. The Staff is very friendly. They don't do gluten free, but they will and I am sure it would be great,

For several years I worked a block away from this place. The sandwich menu changes weekly. All are large portions and very tasty combinations, using quality ingredients. When they offer lobster roll it is outstanding. It is a very busy place for lunch, mostly take out, but the staff is very efficient and the wait time is minimal. Darryl, the... More

Definitely worth a visit! I had the Vesuvio Chicken Sandwich. It may not be the biggest sandwich in the world but it was very fresh and tasty. That being said, the absolute winner was the Buffalo Mac! I am not a mac and cheese fanatic. It has to be good for me to like or recommend it, and boy was... More

My adult son who is a lover of anything served between two slices of good bread, raves about this place. Today he took me there for lunch. Very busy place, only open M-F 10:30-2:30. The line moves very quickly. All sandwiches are made to order and the selection changes all the time I am told. I had a cuban today.... More
