So I ordered a Club Sandwich and Soup of the Day.. with a drink. The price? $17+. OMG. So, I asked the young lady what was up and modified my "bowl of soup" to a "cup of soup" (served in a bowl). Price $13+. Still OMG but... It seems I could have had a half sandwich but I was thinking... More

Tasty and fresh, very fast service, and clean facilities. Prices were good for the size of portions.

We've been to this place twice now, after planning on going to Papa Gyro's but found it closed on Sunday. This is a great alternative. It is an express café, which means that you can grab pre-made sandwiches or build your salads to go, but you can also order menu items à la carte and eat them in house.We've done... More

We were looking for a lighter dinner and something a little different and stumbled across Newk's. We were pleased. Everyone was welcoming and they had some good options of soups, salads, sandwiches and pizza. I had the Italian sandwich which was good and had a little bite. My wife had the Newk's Q (chicken with white barbeque sauce). Both were... More

Went there for lunch. The place was hopping but our food came quickly. The spicy shrimp pizza was very flavorful. It's my favorite pizza at Newk's. The drink counter is small compared to all the other Newk's I've eaten at. The picture is actually of a spicy chicken pizza.

I use to like this place but the last time we were there I ordered the vegetarian tomato soup only to get halfway through my soup to find small bacon bits in my bowl. I started getting sick to my stomach...I was done and we have not been back.

This was my first visit to a Newk's but I would certainly return or seek them out. I ordered a club sandwich to go and it was very good and warmed (something I am not used to). The pasta salad side was so so and I will probably try another side next time. I was hoping they would have their... More

I travel to Huntsville often for business and whenever possible eat here. The salads are made fresh, as is all the food, and you can customize to some extent the ingredients. Also the service is extremely quick which makes it easy to get great food and stay on schedule.

We needed a "light" lunch before continuing with more of a very busy day -- what a perfect stop. You order your food right at the prep center, pay for it, retrieve your beverage and take a seat to await your meal which are brought out pretty quickly. The Blue Steak salad, must larger than I anticipated, and absolutely one... More
