Stopped for lunch. My Wife and I ordered sandwiches. Their menu is quite extensive with a lot of choices. DO NOT USE THE RESTROOMS. Absolutely FILTHY. Someone needs to explain to the employees that they need to get in there and really clean. Toilet was broken in the men's restroom and a sign on the door, IF DOOR IS CLOSED,... More

Super sandwiches and salads at the well know eatery. Always packed a lunch so get there before 11:30. Easy to find. Good food and service.

This has been one of my favorite place for almost two decades, even through some ownership changes. The food is great. Lots of good sandwiches, love the Ruben. The cottage fries with honey mustard is awesome. The culture has changed a little to more of a bar feel especially in the evening. Oh yeah, one of the best beer selections... More

Extensive menu & selection of all types of sandwiches; also daily specials + several good salads. The burgers are very good and you can order several kinds of french fries. The club sandwich is so large two adults could split it. Reuben is also good;mI did not think the Philly cheese was up to par. great variety of beer. The... More

After delivering goods to Monroe, we were ready to eat before heading back to Texas. We checked out Trip Advisor's recommendations, then headed to the Pickle Barrel. 1. Lots of good beer on Tap. Many varieties. If you like beer, and trying something new, this is a great place. 2. the Cajun Burger was shockingly good. We all enjoyed it.... More

New ownership a while back made LOTS of changes and improvements. Kept many of the menu items -- and their clever names. Still a great place for lunch and a brew. It's becoming more of a night-spot too as time has gone on, and my wife and I stopped in last night for a drink. If we were still in... More

A friend recommended this place for its "blue plate special" and indeed, a dry erase board listed some options, which you better memorize as you enter, because your waitress probably won't know what they are. My spouse took the bait, but I ordered the Philly steak sandwich. This place serves all their drinks, except beer, in styrofoam cups, so if... More
