If you want quality and quantity, this is your place. Fresh made bread and homemade potato chips that are still warm are just two reasons to make 5th on 4th your next stop. Sandwiches are piled high with delicious meat options. Carnivores enjoy!

Meal was very good. Service was fast at a very busy place. Got a free wonderful cookie at the end because I waited a little while - less than 5 minutes.

A great locally owned eatery with good food and friendly service. I often have a large salad or one of their delicious sandwiches with amazing bread.

Small sandwich shop with nice servers and good food. Very busy during the lunch hours as it is a local favorite.

I would hate to give an incorrect answer so I would suggest simply asking the restaurant. I think they do have alternative choices.
