Amazing sandwich. Ordered the Thanksgiving turkey and it was IMPECCABLE!! My girlfriend ordered the pulled pork, which was also good. 4 stars only because the reality of paying almost $30 for 2 sandwiches, drinks, and mac and cheese, was hard to swallow. However, I can't...More

Fabulous sandwiches, salads and lunch plates. Seating for about 12 but takeaway is easy, and staff is friendly. Try the fried brussel sprouts with honey! Serve beer in bottles as well.

Love the variety of sandwiches and amazing sides. We are never bored when we come. My hubby is a fan of the bahmi and I love the Thanksgiving sandwich. Lots of great local beer selections too.

Eclectic little sandwich shop with an array of choices. Not what you would expect to find in Hickory. Has a big city deli vibe, but everyone gets soup.

LOVE their Brussels sprouts, salads, sandwiches and atmosphere. Feels like a spot in NYC with the hustle and vibe of the restaurant. Been a fan since they opened.

I'm such a fan of Hatch! The Thanksgiving turkey sandwich is absolutely delicious. Make sure to get the macaroni or Brussels sprouts as a side instead of the chips. Go at an off hour, otherwise the line may be on the longer side and there...More

I did some snooping around and found this review on tripadvisor. It's from 2013 so I don't know if they still do. It would be best to google the restaurant to get their contact information and ask them. “Gluten free... More
