Found on tripadvisor, under cheap eats. We ordered an italian sub. It was huge, of course we shared. Bread was freshly made and lots of meat. Friendly service. Location is off the beaten path. But worth the trip.

We live by this restaurant and come by often as the food is great and the portions are huge. It is family run and the entire staff are extremely friendly. A true find and if you can stop in you certainly won't leave hungry.

I just don't get it. Super average sub, cold and unhelpful staff. Subway is no different, with more options. The only thing I will say that is a good thing is the subs are huge, and you are supporting a local business.

Not too bad for a quick bite. The sauce on the pizza is a little sweet for me and the grinders are ok. They most certainly could use more meat on their grinders but it's ok for an average grinder. Basically, you get what you...More
