Great Sandwhich

The Sandwich's are great. Salads are great also. The bread is what makes it. We had returned from a trip to Italy and ate at NEWK's. The Bread reminded us of Italy. Only bad thing at NEWK's is the noise. Very noisy at lunch time.

They close at 8pm so get there early. The dishes on the website look much better than they do in reality. Really just a salad joint mixed with fast food mixed with trying to be a restaurant. I probably wouldn't go back, but the food was decent.

Ordered several sandwiches and a few pizzas for take out. From ordering to out the door was 14 minutes. Great speed of service and my customers loved each one of their entrees. Great experience.

I felt very constipated and gassy after getting the shrimp PO boy today. I'd recommend staying away from their shrimp.

I was disappointed. 3 people ate for $50 at lunch, and it was just a sandwich and soup. Nothing extraordinary about it. Better deals around Huntsville. Should have gone to Bonefish Grill and ate bang bang shrimp for the same money.

This was my first time to eat at Newk's. I ordered the toasted club sandwich with a side of 4 cheese Mac n cheese. It was really good. I loved every bite. I will look for Newk's in other cities that I travel to.

I tried Newk's Express Cafe for the first time on my last business trip. I've seen it many times as I often stay at the Hampton Inn on University. I'm glad I finally tried it. Excellent variety from sandwiches to pizza. Quick service, great value and excellent staff. Order and they bring the food to your table or quick takeout.... More

We've been here a few times and are always surprised at how good this place really is. The Italian sub teamed up with the tomato soup (1/2 & 1/2) is excellent. Also recommend the chili. Love the way the have the "fixins" bar with breadsticks, peppers, crackers, croutons and even capers! Always clean and organized. The only thing to pick... More

Had the chicken salad sandwich and lobster bisque. Very good. Reasonably priced. It does get loud as the crowd grows during lunch.

Ate here yesterday while out Christmas shopping. It was ok. I didn't expect very much. It is just a sandwich shop. They did seem to have a good menu and the extra condiments such as pepper rings, bread sticks, hand cut croutons, etc were nice. It's going to run you around 8 bucks a person for a sandwich and chips.... More
