This place is the best. The best. Today though I was a little unimpressed with the turkey sandwich. It smelled and tasted off. I hope their success isn't leading them to cut corners.

Try their meat loaf sandwich. This is a hole in the wall restaurant and gets pretty crowded. Definitely a must try. All sandwiches are DELICIOUS

We stopped into Mudgie's on the way to the St. Patrick's Day parade and what a delight. Mudgie had an Irish bacon and cabbage sandwich on his featured St. Patrick's Day limited menu. Irish bacon is the traditional dish that Irish people eat, not corned beef. Anyhow, that is another entirely different story. We were very curious and my sister... More

Mudgie's never disappoints. We stop in once or twice a month, if we can get in. The sandwich combinations are great. Portions are reasonable for the price charged. Soups and desserts are yummy too!

I chose Mudgie's for my birthday because it offers great food, service and would be a comfortable place for adults and my grandchildren and because it is not a chain restaurant. I was not disappointed and my family was thrilled with my choice. And the dessert, OMG, chocolate waffle with mint chocolate chip ice cream and Bailey's flavored chocolate sauce....DELICIOUS!...

Unique sandwiches, salads, soups and desserts you will not find anywhere else. Long waits during lunchtime.

Good not great sandwiches. Big but not huge in size. The menu was fun to read and provided a lot of choices, the beer cheese was pretty good as well. Everyone enjoyed their food but understand the sandwiches are all about $10 and soup is $4. So you can easily spend $15 for lunch not including if you get a... More

I have eaten at Mudgie's a few times, and loved it. Today I called in for a carry-out. Server was the most polite person and I was extremely impressed. I was first put on hold in a very polite manner and then to my amazement, they have this fantastic recording to listen to while your on hold. No wonder they... More

Dropped in on a whim after hearing much about this little sandwich and soup shop from university students. Clever creations with incredible taste, and the option for unique excursions into beer and wine, original coffee and tea. The entire staff pitches in from order to presentation, and once you're there, you'll come back again.

Love the food but really don't like the cramped, noisy space. If they do expand, I will be the first in line.
