Cute and cozy spot with good food

Our group enjoyed a variety of sandwiches (mine--chicken pita--yum!) and we all enjoyed them. The vegetarian chili was delicious! It's a small place--cute, cozy, casual. You order at a counter and the servers bring it to your table. Friendly staff, fast service, and an easy place to have a nice... read more

I had been looking for somewhere new to eat when I came across the reviews for Bo Diddley's. I wanted something other than the franchise options like Subway. I ordered the Ham and Turkey 12". I will admit the cracked wheat bread is pretty good. The issue is the amount of meat and cheese they actually put on the sandwich.... More

Subs are large with lots of meat. Much better quality and taste that a Subway sub. Cost is about the same as well, I CRAVE these subs.

These subs are not standard like subway. They have sprouts and good bread and fresh ingredients. They only problem is the atmosphere at all Bo Diddleys. OUTDATED and somewhat run down.

My friends drag me to this place every-time I visit St. Cloud and I go willingly. If you need a sandwich, go here.

This shop has been a St.Cloud tradition for as long as I can remember. The food is good and the atmosphere is calm but fun. They have delicious soups in addition to the deli items. The down town location will be closing soon (it is now April of 2014) but the location on 25th ave and 1st street south will... More

This place has the best sandwiches I have ever had anywhere. I love sandwiches and have eaten many in my life. This place is excellent with fresh ingredients, good combinations, and enough choice for most groups. The atmosphere is also good. It is a "throwback" to the 60's folk music era with live entertainment on some weekends. The place has... More

The atmosphere feels a little old and the bread is a little dry but the ingredients taste fresh. Not a bad place to grab a sandwich.

I've been going to bodiddleys for years and it will always be my favorite place to go for subs. I don't like this location all that much unless there is live music the one I like is on 25th ave but one thing I don't like is that the benches are carved up with profanity, gang symbols, and racist slurs...

I ordered some take out one day. While ordering it the women named Tammy was very rude and pushy. I asked when it will be done and she said when it gets done. Well I got there about 20-30 minutes later, she took my money and than started cooking the wings. She started cooking them after I got there... After... More
