Love this place. Every time I go there, I am always pleased with the quality of the food and the reasonable prices. The exploding potatoes are unbeatable, and the skinny green pizza is absolutely fantastic! They have such a good variety of food to choose from, even for a picky eater like me. Another big bonus - you can walk... More

For an inexpensive lunch when I'm working, I get the grilled cheese and small exploded potato. Excellent!! Great Service, too.

Its a great place for a sandwich and a beer. Besides sandwiches they have exploded potatoes, soups and salads. Love going there to get their Skinny Green Pizza or the steak sandwich. It does get busy but there is plenty of seating upstairs or outside. Go next door after and check out the specials on wine.

Large and fairly tasty sandwiches and potatoes in the middle of a bunch of warehouses. My sandwich was fine and very large. Same with the potatoes. But I won't be going out of my way to return. Atmosphere is kind of dingy.

I have been a handful of times over the last few years and always enjoy the sandwiches/subs. Also good is the flat bread pizza thing, it is a little different, but very good. The wings are good and salads are good. The exploding potato is great. I will be back many times.

Family of five stopped by for lunch. Took us a while since it was our first time and the menu was massive. We ordered the BBQ meat sandwich, the flat iron steak sandwich as well as the Napa Nachos. All were finger licking good. BBQ meat had a great smokey flavor and sweet bbq sauce. The flat iron steak was... More

I keep wanting to like this place so we keep going back but we haven't found anything amazing except the menu itself. The bread is really the big turn off for me, I always think bread makes or breaks a place like this and it's not very soft, chewy or very good, it's just kind of dry and there's a... More

Walked in to this place for lunch during the busiest time for lunch. The line went pretty quick. We ordered our food and then sat down to wait after we paid for it. It didn't take long; maybe 5 or 10 mins. The amount of food that we got was incredible! Lots of food and it tasted fresh and delicious!... More

Average restaurant. Food was okay but very salty. Do not go if you are on a salt restricted diet or do not like super salty food. Soup was very good. Potatoes were ok nothing special had better elsewhere. Not sure I would visit again much better alternatives.
