The sandwiches are good and it's pretty well run. It sometimes can feel expensive for what you get though. A few tips to ease this feeling: a half Dagwood on rye is not a half sandwich by any reasonable definition, but it is half the price and Save your cup and get a cheap refill next time. I also really... More

I was referred to this deli from an IU alum and have to admit it's a very good sang. Yes it is a little pricey for a sub shop but the location, freshness, and quality are top notch. The fact you order a soda and get a take home cup, icing on the cake.

Walk past all the chain sub shops in college town and go to Dagwoods. It's a deli with a meat slicer behind the counter. Very healthy quantity of meat in the sub and good bread choices. Nothing fancy inside, but all you need to enjoy the sub.

Even after 18 years this place is still the best on campus for sandwiches. I highly recommend making a stop at Dagwoods a part of your trip to Bloomington.

I remember the old Dagwood's with the downstairs area, the huge sandwiches, and the awesome variety. Went there very recently with a colleague from the university across the street and the it is nothing like I remember. The inside was bland, average, there wasn't any signs or notices on whether or not there was a downstairs area. The colors were... More

This place used to be pretty good, but in the last couple of years its just been a close place for overpriced average sandwiches.

I was not much of a sandwich place lover til I found Dagwood's. Get anything with the Dagwood's sauce on it and you'll be addicted to. :)

If you are just looking to grab and go then this is a good place. If you are looking to chill out and hang out with friends btown has other places. Food is good though.

Last weekend, my kids and I drove up to Bloomington for a football game and decided to try Dagwoods for a quick bite since all the other places we tried were busy. I hadnt eaten there since my college days. It did not disappoint! It was exactly as I remembered. Quick and very good deli sandwiches, unique to other deli... More

Awesome Dagwood sanwich! This was likely in the top 3 sandwiches I have ever eaten! The french bread was warm and chewy on the inside with a nice crust on it. The meat was all real, not that minced and pressed stuff used in places like Subway. The special sauce is mayo based and very good. This is not a... More
