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.

Their white bean chili with chicken is fabulous as is their chicken salad. Both my favorites. My mom loves their mac n cheese (four cheeses in the mix). They also have pizzas and specialty subs with italian meats, sauces and cheese. Definitely one of the best eating joints in the Vestavia Hills area that I visit. Not sure if the... More

Quick deli with a wide variety of choices for all, including soups and pizza. The restaurant is loud - so not a date or meeting place. The salads are filling and can be adapted to your needs

This is my favorite restaurant in the UAB area. The Newk's Q is the best sandwich I have ever eaten. The soups and sides are also delicious. The cake...AMAZING! It is always busy at lunch, but they do take call ahead orders.

This was my first experience at a Newk's. The place was really clean, well organized and well staffed. The menu had a variety of appetizing sandwiches, pizzas and sides that sounded wonderful. The only problem I found with anything there was the quantity offered on the side item. Other than that, it was good food at a good value. I... More

Food was excellent. The menu was varied.. Servers were helpful and friendly. Prices were good. Food arrived quickly at our table. Our trip to Newk's was enjoyable, and we plan to return there on our next trip to Birmingham.
