This family-owned business ALLways serves a home-run of a meal. When visitors come to my business for lunch.. I tell'em.. "order your Favorite sandwich, and it'll be the best one ever." I can't wait to have'em cater-up my next party !

I've been coming here for years and I love the massive size of the sandwiches! I always get the egg salad on a French roll, add cheddar. This place is pretty much always busy. I always call in a to-go order.

This place is a little hidden in an industrial area but it's easy to get to. The lunch time is busy but they are fast to serve you. The sandwiches are generous portions and a good value.
