I guess I'm use to a ny corned beef sandwich where there is too much meat to eat that is definitely not the case here . Food was good but very small portion.

For folks like you with the NY appetite, we offer #64 Chris' Full Decker which features six Oz of corned beef. Also available is your option to upgrade the portion you receive: "Make that a... More

Just a few blocks from Kings College, very convenient, we had some sandwiches here on a trip to the college. Huge selection of sandwiches and great soups. We had to wait a little, but the food is good. Fair prices, but not a great value. Convenient.

All of the sandwiches we ordered were exceptionally good. The sandwiches are numbered, and have fun names but the menu posted behind the counter was a little overwhelming because there are so many choices and numbered out of order. Don't worry, just pick something that strikes you as good and go for it. Lee's Sharpshooter #35 and The Bus Driver's... More

The sandwiches are from Boar's Head, which makes them pretty great of course! The best thing about this place is the local decor. Good bit to look at and good food overall. Great place for lunch.

Menu is big so much to pick from. The food quality is good, but if it isn't on the sandwich your paying for it. Positive: Selection, fresh food and nice staff Negative: the extra charges, I get charging for meat but when you order a bacon, egg and cheese bagel in the morning you pay for the cheese, add onion,...
