My fault for ordering a Chicago dog in Willits, Ca. Hot dog itself was soft and they made salsa out of the toppings. Didn't eat it. Friends au jus was good though. Will try someplace else next time I'm in town

This teeny tiny cafe has a great sandwich menu! I tried the vegetarian sandwich and just got half a sandwich, which was plenty since I also tried a soup special. The special soup was Spicy Shrimp - it was something like a hot Gazpacho with medium shrimp in it! Really tasty. The veggie sandwich had some extra things in it... More

I'd rather have someone tell me that they are fixing to close instead of rushing us. We walked in and ordered our drinks, the waitress returned almost immediately to get the order, 4 out of 5 were ready to order. She told my wife that she had 3 minutes to order, so my wife settled for a club sandwich. We... More

Admittedly we are used to fast service, we are from the north east. We arrived to find the cute Loose Caboose filled to overflowing on a Monday afternoon. We were seated quickly but waited about 10 minutes for someone to take our order and then another 25 minutes to get our food. Sandwiches, not souffle. ... 25 minutes. When they... More

Stopped for lunch. Great sandwiches and loved meatball sandwich. Milk shake old fashioned and great. Spicy chili but tasty. Very friendly. Would definitely come again.

Delicious food, overall friendly service, great drinks, sitting outside is much nicer than inside (inside is old and outdated outside is eclectic, fresh, and true to theme).

Husband had the meatball hoagie and raved about it. I had the Callabasses (chicken) hoagie and iced tea. VERY good! Don't miss this place. It's on Wood St, just west off Main.

This is a sub sandwich restaurant that feature some of the most creative subs I have ever seen. What is lacking is a cheeseburger sub, but other than that, the menu is large and complete for the genre. The bread was lightly toasted, warm and perfectly crusty, yielding a delicious sandwich that did not injure the mouth of the consumer.... More
