“Excellent! (Especially for 'Grab & Go')”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This place is a locals' hangout for lunch, where office workers stop by to pick up a few sandwiches to take back to the office. It gets very busy, and deservedly so as the food is great & the serving size is huge. Consider splitting a sandwich for two! If you want to eat on-site, there're a few tables inside and more on the porch overlooking the parking lot. Because this place is so busy at lunch, the staff taking your food order is low-country friendly, but they're focused on being efficient in order to serve the line of customers behind you. So if you're there for the first visit, take some time to review the printed menu brochure and make some decisions before you walk up to the head of the line to place your order. The locals behind you in line on their short lunch break might have some trouble empathizing with your procrastinating over all the tempting options.

“Amazing food: focus on quality not necessarily atmosphere. Large sandwiches are family size!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

Alvin Ords is a delicious sandwich shop. You must try the French bread and the salvation. The restaurant is small with many people calling in lunch orders, if you don't want to wait call ahead to dine in or pick up. Lunch time is always busy but sandwiches are delicious!

“You haven't missed much if you haven't tried this place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The sandwiches were ok; not great like I expected them to be from all the rave reviews from people we knew. I have learned however the vast majority of these people were not LOCALS so trusting their opinion wasn't such a great idea. My husband & I ordered the pastrami (delicious) a large turkey salad sandwich (tasted about average) and a large Rebecca (consisting of thinly sliced turkey, three different cheeses, mustard & sauerkraut) WORST SANDWICH EVER. Entirely too much sauerkraut on it and you couldn't taste anything else on the sandwich. Spent approximately $24 on the 3 sandwiches and we only finished one of them (the small pastrami sandwich)! Sooooo not going back to that place.

“Huge sandwich”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

If you can its best to call ahead but if you decide to go on a whim its not a long wait. My favorite is the ham salvation on french bed. The taco salad is pretty tasty as well if your not in the mood for a sandwich. I don't think you could go wrong no matter what you order off the menu.
