Enjoyed our visit very much. The holiday sandwich was awesome as were the rest of our sandwiches. Much better than chain sandwich places like Subway. Definitely enjoyed the atmosphere and experience and will be back again when visiting my son and family.

Their sandwiches are so unique and so delicious! I only wish they were open on Sundays and evenings, because I can only make it on the occasional Saturday. Very clean. Nice and friendly staff. The #4 is amazing!!! Fantastic bread!

Hello, Traditionally the roast beef in our "hot roast beef & au jus" is soaked in the au jus. This may be why the sack lunch seems to be getting wet. When you order, you may certainly request the beef be "dry" and we will...More

You won't find a friendlier or more accomodating deli anywhere. All menu selections we have tried are fresh and delicious! They will make your sandwich selection as a gluten free wrap if desired. They taste test and perfect new selections before they are added to...More

I really like the namesake above. The small pasta salad was firm and delicious. I don't know about the other offerings, as the above is the only thing I have had here since I have been coming for a couple of years.
