Pizza, sandwiches, salads, you can't go wrong!

The pesto chicken sandwich is great. I get the garlic, balsamic, cheese and breadsticks to-go from the little station in the middle. That sandwich dipped in the balsamic is legendary. The Caesar salad with the extra cheese...the perfect complement to the sandwich. The Five Cheese and the BBQ... read more

First, let me tell everyone that this place stays busy at lunch on weekdays. With its proximity to the hospital and other businesses, it can't help but be busy. But the staff does an amazing job of getting orders taken quickly, getting food prepared quickly and making as positive an experience as possible. On our recent visit, I had the... More

The restaurant is near the UAB complex and very busy during lunch. However, the service and the food are good are worth the price paid. The restaurant is in walking distance of the UAB complex.

Newks is a great place to grab lunch. The soups are good. I like the white bean and kale when it's available. If you get a salad, get the dressing on the side if you don't like a lot. If you don't, they'll toss your salad in a large amount of dressing. This can be especially overwhelming if you get... More

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!

We ate at the new Newk's Eatery at 3780 Riverchase Village, Birmingham, Al, which is not yet listed in trip advisor, last Saturday night. 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.
