This is probably one of the cheapest places for a decent sandwich in downtown Hartford. The lunch line is super long though and they don't have late or evening hours.

My new favorite place for lunch in Hartford. Fresh, fast and not fancy, but great food for a fair price. Recommend for anybody who wants a quick good lunch on the go.
