On the walking mall in Charlottesville. Variety of not expensive sandwiches. Gluten free or regular breads.Staff friendly and fast. They also offer soup and half a sandwich for lighter meal. Some seating inside, but on a nice autumn Saturday you can grab a bite to eat after spending the morning in the Market.

Just an average sub shop. I ordered one of their specialty subs. It was just okay. Nothing special that makes me really want to come back or go out of my way to stop by again. I will say they have a variety of potato chips to choose from.

The Remarkable - bacon+turkey+cream cheese! The High Noon - egg salad and bacon (Sorry,we are into bacon these days and it does add the right amount of savory saltiness to these sandwiches) The Sundowner - Thanksgiving in a roll. All sandwiches are made to order and come with a soft chocolate chip cookie. We enjoyed the soup + half sandwiches.... More

I have celiac disease so I cannot have any cross contamination of gluten without becoming very ill. I am happy to report that Baggby's has never disappointed me! They have the BEST gluten free bread, which they do not list on the menu so you just need to ask for it! It is large and soft, not crumbly at all.... More

I returned to Baggby's after 8 years and I must say, the quality has drastically decreased. I just had my Navajo chicken sandwich - the one I used to love - and am left hungry and disappointed. The quality of the filling is about the same as I recall, but the amount of filling, as well as the quality of... More

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

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

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.
