Great selection of sandwiches and very friendly staff. I ordered the "Wendy Special" (I think) which was turkey, cheddar cheese, apple, mayo, lettuce, onion and it was delicious. I don't remember what my wife had, but with both enjoyed our sandwiches. Great place to grab lunch or a snack.

This place and the town were like a back in time feeling and I loved it! Must have the Cheros Chix salad and a malted. Great prices and funny staff. Felt at home.

If you love sandwiches, this is your place. This has all the basics and they're super tasty. Portions are great. Service is too. There's lots of interesting memorabilia on all the walls.

Had lunch after coming back from visiting Hertford and downtown Edenton. Had an Adult Grilled cheese. Grilled cheese with Cheddar cheese, onion and tomatoes. It was grilled perfect. Very nice place for lunch. Service was good. Everyone liked their food.

Stopped here to get a little bite to eat for lunch since we had a large breakfast & planned a big dinner as well! The food was great, but they didn't have fries to go with their sandwiches!

If you're strolling downtown, stop in for a nice lunch. Seems like a lot of locals go here. Cute soda fountain counter. Nothing fancy, but good, cheap food with good service!

Stopped by for lunch before the Trolley Tour. Fairly nondescript building on the Main street in town. It was 90+ outside and in addition to the air-conditioning the fresh lemonade and orangeade were a pleasant and refreshing treat. The sandwich I ordered would serve 2 and was very good. My wife ordered the pimento spread sandwich which she though was... More

I love the homemade Lemonade, the Chero's Chicken Salad sandwich, and of course, an ice cream cone to go. Frank and his staff are super nice. You can tell this is THE place for locals to come for a nice chat and good food. So, after walking around visiting Edenton's sights and shops, I recommend stopping by here and taking... More
