We really liked all 4 sandwiches and the simple tables were fine. The tight parking situation was slightly frustrating but it proved worth it. We'd go again if we were in the area. Easy location off the highway. Yum! And very generous size!

Popped into this place for a spot of brunch having flown in from Scotland the previous day. Menu. Was extensive and options there for all of us. Had to wait a couple of minutes while our order was cooked from fresh but the wait was worth it. The eggs in particular were excellent best I've tasted since my grandfather's bantums

This restaurant features excellent sandwiches made to order. We always order over the phone, and pick up the sandwich(usually a BLT) to eat at home. The sandwich is always ready on time and as requested. You can eat in as well, and there are a wide variety of items on the menu.

Neat little sandwich shop located in a strip mall between a hair n nail salon and a self serve dog washing business. Don't let this fool u. The food is great. A ton of varieties. Great quality meats. Breads. And the prices are fair. $7.75 for my Super Decker ($11.07 with chips, a drink and tax).

Super nice customer service, efficient, budget-friendly and, best of all, so so tasty! I stopped by here for lunch and will definitely be coming back again. My Double Decker was sandwich perfection made to order. Lots of great options abound here (veg and non-veg alike), plus they serve breakfast sandwiches in the mornings. Good seating inside and out if you're... More

What a great variety of sandwiches in a little place you'll miss if you blink! It's in a strip-mall next to the self serve dog wash. Five of us had five different sandwiches: Reuben, pastrami, california w/ quac, 3 cheese grilled cheese and turkey w/ cheese. There wasn't a crumb left. We'll go by there again!

Great sandwiches and atmosphere. The Jersey Ruben and the spicy Julio are craveable. They cater too so I plan to use them in my next event.
