In addition to their excellent grinders which are basically hot subs, they serve pizza by the slice and fried chicken. This restaurant seems to have a devoted following. Based on our one visit, we would concur. The staff is friendly and the service efficient. Its...More

I've eaten here a few times now and the grinders by far are the biggest! A half a grinder is big enough for two meals, loaded with meat, fresh bread and all the fixings and all for a price you can't beat! The pizza on...More

I got the Italian sandwich, which is my favorite, and this one had a LOT of meat on it, but no real flavor. It was strictly ham and salami, a little lettuce, tomato, and peppers. I got the peppers, even though I requested none, but...More

Ordered a Turkey Grinder and my husband got the fried chicken with JoJos (fried potato wedges). You can pull off the meat from the grinder and make a second sandwich out of it. The Pizza is good too, different style than most places

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.
