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

Great spot for lunch. The service is quick and the salads are amazing. I have eaten here at least 5 times and have never been disappointed.

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
