How small does the amount of black pepper in a "to go" packet have to be before its considered empty?

I hate shopping. I had just spent 1.5 hours as part of the crowd at Bean's. I wanted something I liked as much as I hated the shopping I had endured. I was on the way to my car when it hit me... an overwhelming desire for an Italian sandwich. Sam's was right down the street. The place was... read more

Was a busy Friday and had no particular plans. There was a short line at the counter and they were VERY busy. Staff was friendly, tables cleared quickly, food was very tasty and nice and hot when served.

It was cold, rainy and we were hungry. This place was near shopping on the main road, not many cars, but decided to stop anyway. Staff were very friendly, food was quick, and very good. Reasonable price with good portions.

I have used SAMs for lunches for a Habitat for Humanity group in which I am participating. Their service of delivery, not to mention the quality of their food and timeliness, are beyond compare. I mean we are talking just sandwiches, but when you are working with 12 hungry men building houses, food and service are important!

the pizza tasted like frozen pizza from the grocery store, salad had dirt on leaves. To be fair they took care of it and made a fresh salad. This place is just not very nice and for two small pizzas a salad and soda it cost us over $40. Would suggest going elsewhere.

Stopped by to pick up 2 sandwiches for a picnic. Asked for one chicken salad with tomato and lettuce. They charged extra for the tomato. Also tried a Dagwood-there was no explanation of what a Dagwood was-but thought we would try it-soft round roll, 2 slices of ham, a few bits of bacon and a small amount of veggies. Still... More

The place was packed with locals ordering pizzas and grinders to eat there and to go.Whenever we travel we always look for and ask where the locals eat. You can never go wrong for value and quality at a reasonable price.. Our grinders had fresh ingredients and toasted. Mouth watering

Stopped here because it was the only place without a huge line that was also reasonably priced. Pleasantly surprised! This was a fun little family-friendly place with great prices. Best meatballs I have ever had!
