Excellent Food

The service is fast and friendly. The food is fresh and prepared with care. Had the "Beef Martini" sandwich and was excellent. Everyone in my party enjoyed their meal a lot. The line was out the door, but it moved extremely fast. Definitely will return. I wish they more than just two tables for... read more

My mom found this place on trip advisor and it was highly recommended. We found metered street parking right away. It is a small place, but we fit and found a spot to sit and enjoy our delicious sandwiches. My mom got the chicken one and raved about it. I got the veggie and it tasted like a caprese salad...

This place has some of the best sandwiches I have ever had. Every time I go they have a different variety of sandwiches. It's my new local favorite.

Stopped in on the way to a college visit. Unique sandwiches and great flavors. Would return and recommend. Next time I'd try one of the soups as well.

The sandwiches at Darwin are unique. The meats and other ingredients they use are fresh and flavorful. Sandwiches are prepared with breads and rolls are delicious. The menu changes frequently, so there is always something new to try. The restaurant has limited seating.

The building may be small, but the flavors are huge! The variety offered changes each week and you'll be watching for your new favorite weekly.

Not many Syracusans know of this place but they should. I went for the first time on a Tuesday around 1:45 PM. They had just changed the menu (and do so every 2 weeks or so) so I had to read the 6-7 choices available on the board. Clever names and interesting ingredient combinations made it a difficult one, but... More

Excellent sandwiches in downtown Syracuse. Tried the chicken and dumplings, "Hungry like the wolf" roast beef sandwich, and the "Arti-choke your chicken" sandwich. The roast beef was very good and the chicken was outstanding. Fresh ingredients, generous portion size, and substantial bread! Limited on street metered parking. Mostly a take-out place. Limited seating: three small two person tables and about... More
