“Best sandwiches in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I have eaten sandwiches made by Emilio several times now. They are the best in town. He uses quality ingredients and fresh baked bread. Sandwiches generally cost between $6 and $7 which is pricey for the area but well worth it. Undoubtedly I will go back.

“Something different in Edenton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

This place was good for lunch and had different types of sandwiches and wraps. There aren't that many places to choose from in this small town besides fast food restaurants so this was a good choice. The gyro was very good and staff super friendly.

“Good Sandwiches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

The sandwiches are really good--my personal favorite is the pimiento cheese and bacon with swiss. They have Gyros on special sometimes, which are quite delish! Adorable atmosphere, lots of items for sale as well (cooking goods, specialty items, etc). They finally added some (very limited) indoor seating, and there's outside seating as well. They're always open for lunch, but dinner hours can be iffy. Call ahead first. One sandwich can be split between two people with a bag of chips a piece.

The only negative aspects, however, are the staff and/or owners themselves--can can be overly talkative and pushy. You don't have 10 seconds to scope the place out and the menu before they're on top of you trying to sell their wares. And for me, personally, the shouting orders across the room is very annoying.
