Lived up to local's recommendation

A local resident urged us to try this sandwich shop and it lived up to her promise. As we stood in line, two locals in line with us gave us advice on what to order, and their recommendations were spot on. There may not be a poor selection on the menu. Creative. Quick service. Great value.

Alvin Ord's is a low country tradition. The sandwiches are very unique and taste wonderful If going to the Beaufort area this is a must stop. It may look like a small hole in the wall, but it is huge on taste and quality. The staff are friendlyy and I think it is a great value for the buck. It... More

I've lived in Beaufort for over 10 years now and just love Alvin Ord's. Quality food, friendly service, what more can I say. Will keep coming back again and again. Sitting out front on the porch is really nice when the weather is good and the knats aren't biting. Enjoy!

We heard about this shop from two different locals, both saying its a favorite of all the locals. We decided to make a day of it in Beaufort/Port Royal from Hilton Head & have lunch there. Part of the charm was how tiny the restaurant is and the line up of the lunch rush. The sandwiches were amazing & we... More

The sandwiches are out of this world. I had the Salvation and it amazing. Fresh bread and quality meats and cheeses. The décor is lacking, but that is part of the charm. Go early at lunch, because it gets crowded around 12 and the dining room is small. I imagine that when it is warm, the outdoor area is nice.

They have the best sandwiches - hands down! Their bread is made in house, and the same people have been working there for YEARS! Anyone who's been to Beaufort knows "Alvin Ords." My favorites are the turkey club, rachel, ham salvation, and french dip! You must stop if ever given the chance - you won't regret it!

There is a reason Alvin Ord's has been around so long. They have the best sandwich in Beaufort period!. They bake their own bread and my, is it good. Try the Salvation sandwich...... but you better be hungry!

Alvin Ords is a family favoite. Whether it is the salads or the sandwiches they are made individually and are great. The salvation is a favorite as is the meatball. Great food and friendly staff.

Went for lunch. Service fine. Order at counter and wait for number to be called. My husband ordered pastrami sandwich which was good. I ordered roast beef and had inquired before ordering if the roast beef was rare and was told yes. Far from rare. Well done. We both ordered the potato salad which is nothing special and the potatoes... More
