Best sandwich shop in the county... looks like a small little hole in the wall but that's deceiving.. great sandwiches and reasonable prices. There is usually a line that I'm more than willing to wait on, even in the rain.. Important note, they only take...More

Extraordinary family-run sandwich shop. Consistent quality and value. Dom's antipasto super hero and chicken club are winners.

The constant line out the door speaks volumes. Well worth the wait. Fantastic subs, great quality meats with generous portions and fresh baked bread. Great value at $7.95 for a large sub that can feed two adults easily. Don't hesitate to detour to check this...More

To make a sandwich at home makes sense for price. But when you look at money versus time versus effort a funny thing happens at my hero. The line scares you because waiting for a sandwich seems ridiculous and parking is hard. Then comes money....More
