Great subs, old time butcher, local gem featured on Food Network show

A old fashion butcher shop that also has Great sandwiches to go, Frozen foods to reheat & lunch specials daily. Try the "Ernie Special" sub. Not a sit down restaurant.

The food here is awesome and always fresh! Little has changed since the 60's in this vintage meat market/convenience store. Very cool place!

Stopped here on the way home from AC. The place reminded me of the shops I went to with my Mom 50 years ago. Got some steaks, sausage, etc. Tasted great. Looking forward to returning.

Always the freshest deli meat, being a butcher shop and all, it would be difficult not to have the best!! Staff is always so friendly and helpful. Our family always makes it a point to stop here every time we are in town, which is quite often! I highly recommend you shop here and choose your lunchtime hoagie from here... More

For me, a great sandwich has always been defined by the roll. In this case, Ernest & Sons have proven they know hoagies. You have a choice between soft or hard rolls, and I think that's a terrific option for carb lovers. I didn't get too creative with the inside of the hoagie, so I tested out a tuna with... More

We enjoy sandwiches, wraps and salads here regularly. The menu is extensive. The quality of meats and salads cannot be matched for 100 miles. When we introduce friends from out of town to this treasure, they love it. And if the sandwiches aren't enough, the butcher section is incredible, the prepared foods, the frozen foods. Amazing. Ernest is a must... More
