My family includes 3 cured meat fans and a vegetarian and we were all excited to try this place for lunch when we were recently in Seattle. We got there a bit late (close to 1:30) so things were running out but that's OK...everything is prepared fresh that day so it is to be expected. I was a little sad... More

We went here on a whim--and I am very glad we did. There was a long line. The guy a head of me told me to get the mole sand. The guy behind me told me to get the stuffed pepper. I got both. Unfortunately, when I ordered, I got the LAST pepper, so the guy behind me didn't get... More

This place makes incredible fresh curred meats and cheeses! The sandwiches are fantastic and worth the wait if there is one! Even before a baseball game ;)! I always try and grab a sandwich when visiting Seattle! I love the family oriented staff who are very friendly!

All the good things everyone else has said are so right. I haven't read them all, but in the reviews I read there were a couple of things I didn't see mentioned. Going late for lunch, maybe around 3pm, helps avoid the long lines, but also presents the danger that they will be sold out of at least some of... More

Words fail me. Easily one of the top five sandwiches I've ever had. My traveling companions agree.We were outside the place by 10:30 and first in line. By 11, there were a couple dozen behind us. All I can do is join the chorus praising the quality of the sandwiches here. If it were alone as the one worthwhile food... More

Skeptical at least to journey back to this side of town,but with the police museum next door and reviews singing the praises of the food. I had to try. Arriving early is a must. Parking is limited maybe 3 spots on street across from restaurant. I dropped family off circled through Chinatown with car awaiting for cell phone call. We... More

The porchetta sandwich is worth any wait. Arriving at 11:15, the line was only about 6 people out the door. The sampler of salami offered to those in line helped make the wait more pleasant. Want to try more but the sandwich is rather large. Grilled lamb sandwich was shared on different bread so the two of us were able... More

This place is an amazing sandwich shop experience. Everything they serve is excellent.The shop has limited hours and days. I have never seen a place that sells out of everything in a couple of hours (if that tells you anything). There is always a line. Be prepared. It does move fast. Check the hours and days they will be open... More

Man, I would would in a line 5 blocks long for any thing they serve. Porchetta or mole would have to be my favorite sandwich in the universe.

Bought a Porchetta Sandwich (for lunch) and 4 meatballs (for dinner). Ate half of this yummy sandwich in the car and successfully didn't get any on me. The rest went in the refrig at home. Reheated the meatballs for dinner and the rest of the sandwich the next day (which some how had some unaccounted-for bites taken out of it).... More
