Great food!

We order food from here several times a month. Hubby loves their tuna salad. My favorite sandwich is the muffaletta, which is enough for two meals! Their salads are fresh and delicious. They have awesome soups in the winter. There are usually long lines during season so we usually get a to go... read more

Was told about this place by a friend who found this treasure during a beach vacation several years ago. Not a huge deli fan, but once I tried the ruben...I was hooked. The sandwiches are huge and the service is excellent. Been back several times and each time I try to get something different and it just keeps getting better.... More

Excellent subs and salads are exceptional. Ingredients are fresh and food is only prepared after you order. Service is at the counter but good. Be prepared to wait during season but it's worth it.

You will never go to a chain sub shop again after you eat one of these subs. The sub is packed with the freshest meat and veggetables you will ever eat. In the summer the line is so long. It is good to call in your order. You can dine in or get it to go. They have great salads... More

All of their food is excellent especially the salads. The staff is very friendly you can eat in or take out service is available. Parking may be a problem because it is located with the post office and DQ with not many spaces to begin with.

We had lunch here and the service was quick and food was good. I had a hot ham and cheese sub and it was good. Husband had italian sub and fries and it was also good. Not as good as Jersey Mike's, but good. Iced tea tasted like instant, not brewed.

We were "fished" out by our last evening in Oak Island and decided on take-out. This little place was a great find and we really enjoyed our sandwiches. Although I didn't go to pick them up, I heard the young people working there did a great job and were very professional.
