The Picnic Basket is a very unassuming place, but provides the best subs in the area and very good pizza too. While they also offer salads and sides (most subs come with a side), as well as home made desserts, the subs are the star and they are beyond good. For our latest meal from there, I chose the prime rib and my wife chose the turkey. Both have ample meat, excellent bread, and another thing I like about them is that they come loaded with the extras (onion, cheese, tomato, and a sauce topping). So instead of having to choose (although you still can), you tell them what you don't want, or what you want different. They are 8" subs with wide buns that fill you up, even before you get to the sides, like macaroni salad, or, my favorite, jalapeno cole slaw. For about $8- $10, these are well worth it. You can also choose your beverage, including beer offerings to go along with it. They have a large variety of sandwiches, many with clever names (such as the Kahleesi "fire" chicken sandwich), and are always offering different ones as specials throughout the year. My personal favorite is the "bomber" where you can pick 3 meats and 2 cheeses for your personalized sandwich. You can dine in or pick up to go. Their pizzas are also noteworthy, again with a variety of topping choices and some with pre-named combinations. They also offer some Mexican specialties. This is an excellent place if you're on the go (workers love to go there for lunch), want to take home dinner, or just enjoy the funky dining room and video games they offer.

Although there is a small dining room, this is a big place for take out. They now do lunch deliveries to a small area. Known best for their subs and pizza. Both are excellent. If you are going to pick up, best to call your order in ahead. The Prime Rib sub is to die for, but they have many other delicious subs. If you are a big eater and love barbecue, give the aPorkalypse sub a try!

While at the Lake Country Fire Department to donate blood, my son suggested getting sandwiches from the Picnic Basket Restaurant. I opted for the Khaleesi Fire and Sweet Chicken and Jalapeno Cilantro Coleslaw. Both were excellent. The sandwich had a "bite" to it, thus the Fire in its title. Loaded with tomato, lettuce and pickles with a very nice spicy sauce.

Cute little place to eat lunch. Everyone was so welcoming. Food was out standing. I had the quesadilla, simple but great. One thing I would say is the chips tasted kind of stale. Will be back very soon!'
