This is a favorite lunch place for us. They always have several daily specials and I've never been disappointed. The service has always great and the prices are reasonable. I would recommend this place!

I love this place! Fantastic, homemade & fresh! The menu is varied to appeal to everyone and the prices are inexpensive! The fact that the owner, whom is also the server & cashier, is on the phone, is testament to her skills! They are just that busy and instead of "not answering" the phone to take to go orders, she...

I'm a little humored to read others reviews about the owner being on her cell phone, because we witnessed the same thing, but had a different reaction to it. We were amazed at how well she multi-tasked and assumed she was taking to-go orders over the phone. She was very attentive, taking the time to offer suggestions to our indecisive... More

This was my first time here.The owner waited on us and was nice and friendly. The food may seem on the pricey side but the ingredients are fresh and the amount of food you get makes it worth it. I will definitely come back.

We have been to Once Upon a Sandwich many times over the years. The owners have always maintained high quality and the attendance by the locals has been steady over the years. They give friendly service and always are smiling. We will return for lunch.

First let me say I've been here before. Unfortunately I just don't find it all that spectacular. I definitely felt the owner was not friendly, or she was just in a bad mood the day we were there. There was no talking, no chatting, or any warmth whatsoever. The food was just OK - I've had worse and I've had... More

Walked in for lunch and it was pretty busy. Seated ourselves eventually ... we didn't realize we weren't supposed to wait. Got a table and waited a while for someone to take our order ... when it happened, no "hey", "how are ya?", just stood and looked at us with pen in hand. Everyone loved their food however. I had...

I cannot believe I ate in the same place as the other reviewers! The food was pretty lousy, I had a Navajo Taco that was bland and cold and wet, my husband had sloppy joes that had a ton of sugar and seemed to have more large chunks of celery than beef. The owner prebussed our table, and was very... More

We walked in to great classical music! Seat your self......there's no sign. Service started out a little slow but by the end of the meal we were hooked. The wraps and sandwiches are a meal for two, very tasty. The owner wrapped our leftovers, packed them in ice for our trip and gave us advice on what to see in... More

We just happened to stop here for lunch on our way through Cortez... What a great find! One of the best lunches we've had in the states so far (been here nearly 3 months!). It was a particularly good place for the kids as they brought out age appropriate jigsaws and there was a great "pre-school finger food" option for... More
