Food Excellent, Service Sub-Par

The food was delicious. However, the waitress serving us never checked on us. She only took our orders, delivered our food, and gave us our check. A bus-boy gave us take-home boxes, as she never stopped by our table to ask how everything was. As I said, the food was delicious, but the service... read more

I noticed some complaints here about the service and condition of the restaurant, but can't shed any additional light on either. We phoned ahead about 30 minutes before picking up our sandwiches as a take-out order a picnic at for Niagara. From a visit to Buffalo a couple of years ago, we knew exactly what we all wanted: smoked turkey... More

Best sandwiches in Western New York. Delicious! Why 4 instead of 5 stars? This place nickles and dimes you on drink refills and does not honestly disclose extra charges. "Would you like more Coke?" -- Sure.. Why not? "Fries or potato chips with that?" These questions, the way they're worded, imply that these are included with the meal and refills... More

This is a very busy place at lunchtime. It can take time to get your order, whether you eat in or order out, give yourself plenty of time, but it is SOOO worth the wait. I have never seen sandwiches this size ANYWHERE. They are freshly made with awesomely fresh ingredients, loaded with meat, on GREAT bread (your choice.) You... More

I stopped in for a sandwich on a Monday. They were closing which slowed things down. As I stood there, the staff (who all seem related) was loud. The floor was really dirty. One of their delivery persons returned from a delivery and swore when told a sandwich had been forgotten from the order so he had to return. All... More

I went to eat their on my lunch hour last week with a couple of friends and the service was terrible. It took over 45 minutes for us to get our lunch, let me stress these are only basic sandwiches that are being made. The waitress never came over to apologize for the time it was taking to get our...

Local suggested Chris' and we were not mislead. Massive sandwiches and salads with fresh ingredients. excellent service, plenty of room. Went early and was not rushed even as it got crowded. Many doggy bags for the group. Clearly steered in the right direction.

This unassuming restaurant makes some of the best sandwiches I have ever eaten. I highly recommend the chicken cutlet avocado sandwich. The restaurant is spacious, tables are well-spaced. Service is attentive and the atmosphere is comfortable and welcoming. Prices are very reasonable. The day we visited the restaurant was full and food was slow to arrive. The owner was very... More
