“Best food in Frederick”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013 via mobile

The sandwiches are really good and huge portions. I dream about the Exploding Mashed Potato Salad and the Chili. Relatively inexpensive as well. We make pilgrimages here from Ellicott City. People are nice enough and the decor is a little wierd, but i definitely recommend it.

“The BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Wow. We went there twice for lunch and it was FABULOUS both times. The exploded potatoes were so gooooooood. Get a small if you are eating something else. In our group, we had sandwhiches, salads, exploded potato (yes, worth mentioning twice) and everything was good. The guys tried the flat iron steak sandwhich and said it was great. The cobb salad (small is big) was amazing as well. GO THERE!!!!! Oh yeah, and they have there wine on sale at the little store next door every Friday.

“Best Sandwiches in Town!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

The food is fantastic, great beer selection, and friendly staff. What more can I say? There are a number of healthy and vegetarian options, but plenty for carnivores as well. The exploded potatoes are a must-try. This place gets busy during the weekdays around lunch time, so come early. My company has used them for catering as well, and have always been very happy.

“Fredericks Best Kept Secret”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is my favorite lunch spot. Best sandwiches for afforadable prices. My coworkers and I love the low key atmosphere! If you go, you have to try their exploding potatoes.

“Pleasantly surprising eatery in the middle of industrial area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013 via mobile

EXCELLENT food!! Our friends who live in Frederick recommended this "sandwich shop" but it is so much more than that! The have big sandwiches, salads, pizza, loaded mashed potatoes of all sorts and a huge variety of beers and a connecting wine/beer shop. I had the "Oakland" sandwich and could barely eat half of it! I also ordered their regular loaded mashed potatoes which was a HUGE portion and I didn't look like I made a dent. So savory! The staff was very laidback and friendly making all feel like a valued customer & friend. They let us sample the mashed potatoes. Others with us had: loaded nachos, steak mashed potatoes, wings (Tip: medium spice wings are HOT!), Oakland sandwich and all were excellent. One annoyance was that the wings took a while to arrive so 2 of our friends had to wait and their sides got cold because the staff brought the sides beforehand. This is a modest building and decor but we loved it for a casual hang-out! It is a stand-alone restaurant surrounded by office/storage buildings. Apparently more of a lunch crowd restaurant but it was nice to be there on a Sat. Evening and it was not super-crowded. We will return the next time we are in the area!
