Home town restaurants and sandwich shops are very difficult to find these days, and especially those that are also outstanding. The menu here provides a wealth of really delicious specialty sandwiches that the chain restaurants simply can't sustain. Their hot sandwiches are especially delicious! Highly recommended.

Franklin Square is not a chain sub sandwich shop. Everything is so fresh and delicious. Great subs, fresh bread and amazing macaroni salad! Friendly atmosphere, and that small town Deli feel.

Being a local, I'v eaten here often over the years. The subs have always been fresh and tasty. Salads are also great. If your looking for a good sub lunch, this is the place.

I recently ordered several boxed lunches from Franklin Square Deli for a work event. The lunches were delicious! I received several compliments. Not only did they taste fantastic, but they were also very reasonably priced. Delivery was exactly on time and each box was clearly marked so the process of having people choose a lunch that they liked went quickly... More

Great selection of salads, all types of sandwiches, sides and other items! The sandwiches are well-sized...ample but not overly huge portions. Fresh and tasty ingredients. The potato salad is especially wonderful! Will definitely return many times.

Only one thing wrong with this place in my book....man, the menu choice was so long and so good sounding I didn't know what to choose ;-) But my Philly was really tasty, as were the sweet potato fries. V nice staff too. Would recommend

Good sandwiches if you like high grade lunch meat. Been there 2 times and took an unusually long time to get our food. I recommend it if you have plenty of time. Don't go if you have to be at work.

We apologize for any mishap at the counter, if you happened to drop by this past Thursday, we had two very large pick up orders that swamped our lunchtime service.... trainwreck. We pride ourselves in our very quick turnaround from placing order to having your food on your tray or in your bag, often just short moments. Thank You. More
