Good sandwiches

After visiting Monticello, came to Charlottesville to see their downtown pedestrian mall. Somebody told us how good the place was so in we went. We were both very pleased with our sandwiches and the staff. Would definitely go there again

I've lived in Charlottesville for four years now and had never bothered to go into Baggby's until today. I'm volunteering in town for the Look3 Festival of the Photograph and stopped in to pick up a few sandwiches. I order the Grinder and asked for it hot, including the vegetables. It was really very good. Comes with a small, yet... More

I return to Baggby's every so often just to have something different than my normal lunch. I do really like the sandwich I get (High Noon), however, I always find it odd they label themselves a gourmet sandwich shop given that the sandwiches are very simple. For this reason, I also think they are overpriced. The bread really does look... More

would have given five stars, but grilled sandwich took almost ten minutes. Pueblo is worth it. Owner and his wife are great, she apologized for the wait, and explained everything is grilled fresh. They were busy, but I only had 20 min to eat my pueblo. They need a bigger grill.

This is a low-grade version of Take It Away for the busy businessman who has 30 minutes off for lunch break.

We grab sandwiches from Baggby's for lunch sometimes and have learned that they really are the best option for food during a show at the Pavillion since they allow outside food! There are tons of choices, all of which are great. Their cookies are really good, too! One thing to remember if you do order something to bring in to... More

Stopped in for lunch while walking the mall. Nice sandwiches at very reasonable price. Wife ordered a soup without knowing it was a creamy soup and was refunded promptly. Enjoyed the meal on the mall and will be sure to return !!

This was a great late day find while walking the downtown mall in Charlottesville. We toured UVA with my daughter and it was late afternoon. We were very hungry. The restaurant was mostly empty at this time, but the food was really good. They were extremely friendly and my entire family loved their hot sandwiches. I especially enjoyed the Philly... More

This is a cute, family-run business that has a great market on the lunch-time sandwich rush. The service is extremely friendly, and the sandwiches are classic meals similar to what my grandma used to make me growing up. This is not a foodie-destination, but sometimes, I just want a good club without any bells and whistles! I love the BLT.... More

I love this sandwich place. The owners and staff are super friendly, delightful folk who offer a wide variety of delicious sandwiches made with fresh ingredients. If you like no-nonsense, one ingredient sandwiches, these are all on the menu with comforting homemade taste. I now always get the egg salad, plain, because it is simply the best. If you want...
