“Nothing fancy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Our biggest question on each visit is do we share a sandwich or do we take home half of our sandwich. Take hoem wins out everytime. Everything is great but no matter what I order i need a side od sweet potato chips. Unless you are really hungry order the small bowl of soup if yo order the large bowl do not order any thing else becasue you will make to the clean plate club.

Fresh bagels, bialys, breads, cookies and donuts...Made fresh every morning are always available! Lean corned beef, melt in your mouth turkey and beef pastrami...Plus a wide variety of other sandwhich toppers makes "Once Upon A Grill" the top sandwich deli on the North Shore! Omelets you can load with asparagus to zucchini from American, Cheddar,Jack, swiss Munster or feta cheeses. They also offer Turkey Sausage and Turkey bacon.
Homemade soups, fabulous salads made fresh everyday and their Chipotle House Ranch dressing creat fabulous meals in themselves.
To top all of this...They have outrageous Mexican Fare created by their own cooks...Authentic tacos, burritos, Carne Asada, and Huevos con Chorizo, Acalpulco, Mexicana or Machaca!
Great Service and Super Clean dining Experience!!!

“The people make the difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

This is not a fancy place, and the food is not gourmet, but it's that comfortable kind of place you can go a few times a week. Kind of like going to Mom's. The menu is huge - if you can't find something you want to eat here, you're simply not hungry. You can order just a bagel or a whole meal and the service will always be friendly and helpful. Open all day - easy to drop in if you just want to sit down with a friend and a cold drink (no liquor). Portions are large, prices are reasonable.
