Decided to give them a second try, and was yet again disappointed. Ordered the Philadelphia (cheese steak). Meat portion is very small in comparison to the roll. Although it tasted fine, it is certainly NOT worth the $8.99 price tag. Plus, they have NO ketchup...period. Not one worker smiled. The gal taking the orders and getting fountain drinks was cordial,... More

I bit into the most delicious sandwich and immediately said, 'I'm going to get another.' The corned beef was tender, sauerkraut just so and dressing perfect. The bread was toasted to a golden brown. The second one was also perfection. It is a special for St Patrick's Day. So great!

We tried in our group a variety of sandwiches, all of which were good. Most of the sandwiches are $8 and you get your money's worth. The sandwiches are freshly made for you so there is a short wait. Parking nearby was easy

A forgettable sandwich and a rude woman behind the counter. Not sure if the man working and her are a couple but they appeared to not be getting along.

All hot and cold sandwiches. Fast counter service and plenty of meat on the sandwiches. Was clean and no frills. Would return.

I went a little boring and got the Philadelphia but after staring at the menu for 10 minutes, I just couldn't decide. The order taker wasn't super friendly but I figured they were trying to create the atmosphere of a Philly/New York no-nonsense shop. The Italian bread was delicious and the sandwich came out blazing hot with fresh veggies. All... More

Unfortunately I didn't try the deli sandwiches that, apparently they are famous for... But the staff was friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The wait was short and the Queen was good! Meat, greens and dressing fresh

Its always good to support local especially when food is excellent and tastes fresh. Their veggie is really really good as well as their variations on cheesesteaks. One of the best things is the bread. Really tasty. If I had a complaint is I wish the side portions were larger- not the best value in my opinion. Sandwich size though... More

I tried this place by ordering two sandwiches to go. The menu was simply, the place was not as clean as a sandwich shop should be. When I walked in the door I noticed tables upside down on other tables like the place wasn't open yet. The floors were dirty and the décor looked old and run down. I gave... More
