We went to Old School Sandwich Company on 23 July. The albums that decorated the walls were down, and the door was locked with a sign announcing "coming soon Bagels Deli" Oh well. It is a shame. their sandwiches rocked.

Retro feel. Okay friendly service and a unique assortment of soups and sandwhiches. The lemonade is the drink you want to try. Does takeout as well.

Great selection of both unusual and classic sandwiches. The portions are large. Yummy fresh-cut fries. Fantastic house-made coleslaw. Great spot for lunch!

Old School Sandwich Co is like the movie's food truck in that it was founded by a conventional chef who followed the dream. The key word at OS Sandwich is fresh. The named sandwiches give a nod to tradition, but some combine ingredients to that you might not have tasted together before. The "Big Bird" is essentially Thanksgiving dinner on... More

We try to support local business so tried the Old School Sandwich shop a couple of times. On the last visit, the owner or manager was bullying the two waitstaff girls. He was obtrusive and annoying, not letting them take our order (we were the only people in there). The sandwiches were greasy, not fresh and overpriced for what you... More

Everything made fresh to order. Can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Won't find any deli like it, simply unique and delicious. Mike, Kate and team do a great job. Highly recommend it.

I stop in here often to pick up a sandwich for lunch. Everything I have tried is delicious. The hardest thing about ordering here is the great variety and actually deciding what to get. Very fresh ingredient and high quality meats. Will definately be back.

Homemade pastrami, turkey, corned beef, ham and roast beef. The quality of theses made to order sandwiches is great as is the flavor. OSS doesn't need gimmicks like Carnegie size with the special flavors that can only be enjoyed through homemade meats. Soups, salads and other items are also homemade but, I did not sample them yet. I will and... More
