I usually go to the one on the Southside but they are all great! It's casual and the food is good. The Newks Q is the absolute best!

I ordered a half Caesar salad with turkey diced and side of Mac & cheese. My husband ordered a Shrimp Po Boy & coleslaw. I loved my salad but found out shortly they had forgotten my... More

Really good soups! Sandwiches are ok, some are much better than others. You'll just have to search around for what suites your taste. Overall the closest thing to a prepared meal around the medical center that you are going to get.

Newks is a great place in Birmingham area to get a quick bite of some good food. It is fast casual and has a wide array of choices. I love the soup and sandwich combo. The soups are hearty and always have a nice finishing touch. They have day specific soups and I usually go for the thick and hearty... More

It's always too much to eat, but I have to get a sandwich, soup, AND a salad when I eat at Newks. Always fresh and good quality. Never had bad service, either, and I've been to all the locations. Someone else mentioned reliable, and that is a good word for Newks. I have my favorites, but when I get adventurous... More

I had the turkey sandwich and pasta dish. Very very good. I love the toasted bun and meat sausce they used on the turnkey. I also like the fact they have sweet tea made with spenda.

Newk's is quick, convenient, and always consistent quality. I especially like their chicken salad. We use them frequently for catering our business luncheons and everyone is happy with that choice.
