HUGE sandwiches!

Gigantic sandwiches and salads were very tasty! Every drink imaginable is available to wash down your meal and plenty of delectable desserts to choose from for the Grand Finale!

I love their food, it is great but as a local I am tired of their "take it or leave it, we don't need your business" attitude when it come to customer service. They won't do any kind of substitution, and won't apologize for it or say no with a smile. Today, I picked up lunch for the office and... More

Went here on a whim and it was delicious. Portions were large, and prices were reasonable. A lot of vegetarian options of substance, and some could easily be made vegan. There were almost too many choices for me lol.

Great selection of sandwiches. My favorite is the simple Neahwa but there are so many good ones. Ingredients are always fresh. A must try.

This place is a great option for a hearty lunch or take out dinner. A local, west end institution, it is always humming with traffic. The food portions are generous and the flavor combinations are unique. You can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches (I like the one with squash) which come with a nice side of mac salad,... More

Our Adirondack Mountain Club, after a morning hike, likes to eat together, and everyone had heard about the Undercover Eggplant Company. So we added it to our list, and found a treasure. It's small, efficient, personable, and what a place to have a big bowl of fantastic soup and homemade bread, that is unusually tasty, and affordable. I am so... More

We stopped in for an early dinner on a Saturday (about 4:30-ish). It wasn't busy, so we had time to figure out what to order. You order at the counter, pay, and get a pager which buzzes when your order is ready, at which time you pick it up from the counter (they don't do table service). I had the... More

This place is fantastic. My favorite sandwich is the Oneonta Reuben, which is grilled chicken topped with a spicy coleslaw, and a side of pasta salad. The customer service is great, the atmosphere is a mix of tables and benches/table combo (newly renovated due to a fire the previous year). If you are looking for a place that represents the...

This is the best place in town to grab a delicious lunch!! Two freshly homemade soups are offered daily, and they are always delicious. Big, hearty portions that will have you leaving stuffed and satisfied! Scrumptious bread is baked fresh daily and all sandwich & salads are fresh and delicious. The balsamic dressing on the salad is so good, it's... More
