Avoid it if you can. I ordered the tuna but as soon as I saw the worker take a large bucket of tuna and squeeze the water out of it with his bare hands I asked to change my order to something else to where the worker (small Asian kid with a bad attitude) rolls his eyes and scrapes the... More

Bon Nasty! Avoid at all costs! The owners and people who work here are about the rudest people I've ever met. If you want your day to be ruined over a sandwich, then go here. I asked to have the chicken salad and a vegetable but I didn't quite want a platter or a salad. If you deviate from the... More

I've heard a lot about this place and took my wife there for lunch. The place is sort of small with about a dozen table and it is crowded at lunch time. The people at the counter were very friendly and helpful. The menu is that of an upscale deli. Our sandwiches were excellent. I highly recommend this place but... More

This place is not really a restaurant. It's more of a gourmet deli. Not sure how this qualifies as #2 restaurant in Columbia. Sandwiches are edible - nothing special. Prices are good. Service is friendly.

I live near Bon Fresco and it's taken me far too long to eat here. I had a picante chicken sandwich which was absolutely delicious! I also ordered a fresh, right out of the oven baguette for $2.00. The cashier was very friendly as well. It's a shame this place is so tucked away - Columbia style. Folks doing Snowden... More

Have been there twice now. First time I got the London Broil, all I can say is WOW, tender, thinly sliced. OMG. This week I tried one of their 'picante sandwiches'. Got the Chicken Breast, it had some kind of hot pepper cheese, roasted red peppers, grilled veggies, and last but not least caramelized onions. Not crazy hot, but had... More

Bon Fresco is great because they bake their own fresh breads daily and their soups are always delicious and constantly changing. Their deli sandwiches are not too filling, but just right which is why I love their soup and sandwich combo. Great place to go for lunch and eat a healthy meal. Be careful about their hours since they're closed... More

About 14 tables in store. Very efficient large carry out staff. Orders taken fast and wrapped well, Take your order to a table of take out. Party of two for lunch (carry out). We... More

I tell everyone the sandwiches are gourmet at non-gourmet prices. The soups are usually quite good too. It's impressive to see them bake the bread, and Bar-B-Que the meats and veggies. My favorite is the Chicken Picante sandwich. I'm unable to describe what it tastes like, but it's delicious.
