“Eh”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

Supposedly they are famous for the "camel rider" which, as far as I can tell, is lunch meat on a pita with italian dressing. Not good, not bad. They carry pub food similar to applebee's - wasn't impressed. I've been twice and I think that's enough for me.

“Love this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2010

I have been eating at Speakeasy for many years. They had curly fries before anyone else and some of the best sandwiches. I will eat at other sandwich shops, but this is the best. Great chicken fingers and pizza too.

“Good for tourists if they listen to the locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2009

The Speakeasy has been recently renovated (summer 2008) and expanded. The Camel Rider is the signature dish and the pizzas are good. Service is spotty depending on when you go if you're not a regular. If you're a regular, they greet and wait on you like you're Norm from Cheers. Some locals may find this sacriligeous but I find the Speakeasy's chili dogs better tasting than Sarge's. Yeah! I said it!
