“So delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013 via mobile

We went twice in two days- the porchetta was that good. Very filling. I found the meatball to be too fennel-y but still ate the whole thing!

It seems to always be packed but they get you in and out super quick.

“Just average?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I saw this place on Diners, Drive In's and Dives on TV. The place was packed and lots of people in the line up which to me indicated it'd be a good place. I ordered the Porchetta sandwich and found it to be... average. It's just roast pork on bread. I found the roast pork to be really salty. The side sauce is just mustard. I just felt like it's something I could make easily at home. It was worth trying though and I did eat the whole thing. Was still hungry after.

“Simple. Delicious.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

This throw back restaurant is simple: get your food, eat your food. With about 5 choices you don't need to take a long time to decide that you're about to enjoy meat and bread!
Had a tasty lemonade with a delicious Corned Beef sandwich. Don't forget to wash it down with a salted chocolate bar!

“Couldn't better the speed of service nor quality of the food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

We were there today and couldn't find fault. We had a late lunch and the queue was just a few. The pork was warm and cut up in front of us from the freshly roasted pork leg going into warm freshly cooked rolls with a smattering of pork crackling on the top. It needed no seasoning apart from the sales verde dribbled on the meat. What more could you ask for? All for $8.00.

“Not what I expected from reviews”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Based on The good reviews, I went to try this "famous" food and I'm sorry to say that I was really disappointed. They suggested the special (pork) and I found it extremely dry we even have to put some of the soup inside to be able to swallow! The soup ok but the meat dry as well. Wouldn't go again.
