Having been to a lot of deli-type places I found the sandwiches to be okay but nothing special. The menu board is confusing and I think it is a tad expensive for the quality. Also the environment feels worn and uncomfortable

If there is a local hot spot on Signal , this is it. Russ and Sarah Holmes have created the perfect sandwiche shop with quality food and added service , usually finding time to chat awhile catching up on what has happened since your last visit. My favorite is the 6 inch club and the Rueben is always a close... More

The 517 Subs on Signal Mountain is an on-going affair for my wife and myself. It is only 2 miles from our home and we have been stopping by there for years. It is a quick lunch, priced very reasonable and the food is always consistently good. It's a local hangout and one of a very few we go to... More

I was looking for a place to eat that was a little different than everywhere else on Signal Mountain. This was the place! It was such a nice change. It had that family restaurant feeling instead of the commercial chain kind of feeling. Every staff member was super friendly and had smiles on their faces. They were sincerely nice people.... More

A real favorite for after ball game family dinners. Great subs with super fresh baked breads and kid pleasing sandwiches and treats. The grand sons know exactly what to order. Everyone had something different and all was good. Service was spot on. We arrived ahead of the crowd and I thought "lucky us" but the line moved briskly and all... More

Absolutely the best sub sandwiches I have ever had. The Italian is amazing and Sara's Reuben is simply the best reuben I have ever eaten. Bread is baked fresh in house and meat and cheese are sliced fresh when ordered. Super clean restaurant and friendly staff. When in Chattanooga, it's definitely worth the drive up the mountain for a taste.

Prices are in line with all of the competitors and the service is excellent and friendly. They do close daily at 8:30 pm and are closed on Sundays slow plan ahead. They are excellent for... More
