Unique sandwich selections along with the normal staples for lunch

Right on the main road a unique stop for a sandwich. Fairly priced my organic salad roll up was delicious. Others in our group enjoy similar experiences. Neat and clean

We stopped in for a pita rollwhich on our way up to Provincetown. It's just a counter to order at and a few chairs, but the food itself was well worth the money. I don't like wraps, but this was pita bread and it made all the difference. I highly recommend this place if you are planning a beach excursion... More

We stopped for a quick lunch on our way off the Cape and had great soup and sandwiches. We've stopped before. Service was good and servers were friendly. Our clam chowders were hot, thick and creamy and the roast beef wrap with horseradish was particularly delicious as was the BLT wrap. This place is a Cape Cod institution. I hope... More

We ate breakfast at the Box Lunch and while the food was good we were surprised to have to eat it off of paper plates using plastic knives and forks. We noticed many people coming in, ordering sandwiches and taking them to eat on the picnic tables located by the road. The food was good, but seemed best suited to... More

My husband's favorite Cape lunch, and one I enjoy. The only negative is the newspaper clippings about the injustice done to the proprietor's family member. True or not, complaints about how an incident was handled by the authorities, ending in tragedy, is not something I want to see when I go out to lunch.

We walked out. The place was dirty. Staff was not trained. We asked for a Hot Lobster Roll. They offered to microwave it for us.

We have always gotten Porkys Revenge, and have always been very happy with it. Tried something new, Chicken Caesar, and a Frank Purdue. Both were just OK. The chicken in both were gristly.

Passing through on the way back out of Provincetown stopped at this location for some lunch and ordered a couple of "rollwhich's". These Box Lunch restaurants are all over Cape Cod, so I thought I would give them a try. Not being from the area I was a bit suprised my sandwhich was actually a wrap. They were very good... More

The sandwiches at this place are very very good. I dream of the "John Alden" when I am not able to get to the Cape. It has real cranberry sauce and you can get it with roasted turkey!!

We picked up lunch here, to take to the beach. There are so many choices that it is very difficult to make a decision. I ordered the Walberry, which is a wrap with chicken salad, grapes, walnuts, tomatoes, cranberry sauce, lettuce and mayo. It was absolutely delicious, and I would highly recommend it. It's great for the beach. Funny thing... More
