Too pricey for a sandwich

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.

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

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

I used to eat at Newks in Mobile all of the time. Loved it. The sad part is that their soups change everyday. I hadn't eaten there in about a year and was looking forward to their fire roasted tomato soup. Sadly, it wasn't an option the day we ate there (Tuesday). My husband had never eaten there before and... More

I love the food here. Very fresh and tasty, can't go wrong. The atmosphere is a bit on the loud side, due to all the hard surfaces everywhere and nothing to absorb the sound. Food is great I love the salads and service is good too. Great place to go for a quick takeout as well.

My husband and I eat here about twice a month. I love the Ultimate salad. Their house made honey mustard is SO good. The hubs usually gets the club, newks q, or a pizza. You really can't go wrong. The tea is always delicious and fresh.
