One of the BEST sandwiches I've ever eaten!

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... read 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.

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!
