This is another area restaurant frequented by the students from Bryant University. It is located about a mile from the campus. The sandwiches are large and average about 9.00 each. All ar prepared fresh while you wait. The cost is a little high for the value but worth a visit.

Ordered a meatball sandwich and was pleasantly surprised. The bread was great and the meatballs and sauce was fantastic.

Decided to try this place after the first restaurant we tried in Smithfield was a bust. The sandwiches are very good but the service was questionable. While they had several workers I waited at order counter a very long time before someone would even acknowledge my existence. The wait for a sandwich was quite long too, even though there were...

We have been to J's many times. Food is consistently good. New items are added but the old favorites like the pilgrim seem to call you back, so does the graduate. Try their own chips , very tasty. Prices are reasonable

This place is handy for us, however, I have become disenchanted with some of the quality! I think the first thing that started me thinking that, was was when I noticed that the Bread for Sandwiches seemed less appetizing, too dry and tasteless! I love a nice Italian Cold Cut Sandwich, but if the Bread doesn't taste good to you,... More

Biggest problem is deciding what sandwich to order! We decided to split "The Fraternity" which is delicious chicken salad, cranberry sauce on yummy roll. We also had soup - soooo good! I had the corn chowder - rich & creamy while my husband had the red chowder - full of stock! Both were served hot and just so delicious! We're... More
