A slice of home

Alvin Ord's has been a popular fixture in my hometown of Beaufort, SC since before I was born. They bake the buns for their sandwhiches in-house. The food is reasonably priced, and though it can get cramped on the inside on a busy day, there is the option of outside dining. I love, LOVE their Ruben... read more

Very good food, average prices for a sandwich shop. We stop here every year when vacationing in the area. Parking is adequate. If you stop at lunch, seating is limited and an inside seat is hard to come by.

I have been eating at Alvin Ord's since 1984 when I took my very first teaching job. Although I have moved away from Beaufort (one of my biggest mistakes in life), whenever I am in the area for vacation or other travel, I make sure to stop by Alvin Ord's. My kids love it as well! I wish it would... More

Alvin Ord's looks like a total dive from the outside but you will NEVER see an empty parking lot! If it's your first visit, I'd recommend running inside and grabbing a menu from the post near the door or on the counter & then calling in your order! If you walk up during lunch time, expect to wait 10-15 minutes... More

Very small building with limited seating. You should expect to stand in line awhile to order if you come for lunch. It would appear that most locals call in their orders and takeout. There is a special line for that. Toasted sandwiches are excellent and come on either wheat or french circular buns similar to a Schlotzky's and in three... More

I lived in Beaufort for many years and my son and I would go to Alvin Ords and get our sandwiches to go before heading to the beach. Amazing homemade bread with fresh fillings and the same smiliing faces have been there year after year. Now I live overseas, but whenever I get back there, I always go to Alvin... More

A Reuben with spicy mustard instead of Thousand Island dressing, cheddar cheese instead of Swiss, a toasted salvation wheat bun instead of grilled rye bread? Had to try it....and it was GREAT! Good as it was, glad I ordered the small as it was huge. This was my first visit to Alvin Ord's, but it won't be my last. The... More

We visited Alvin Ord's for lunch on a Thursday. We have passed this place on Ribaut Road and, noticing the many cars in the parking lot, decided to give it a try. And, we're glad we did. My wife had a small BLT and I had a small turkey club. Excellent warm sandwiches that are freshly made by the small... More

We had a great Rubin with plenty left over for a late evening snack. Don't order a large as a medium will provide plenty of food. So when in Beaufort give them a try.

Being stationed in the area, we have visited Alvin Ord's on many, many occasions. We have never been disappointed with any of our selections. The staff is excellent and very curteous. This place is a must for anyone who loves a great sandwhich.
