“Exploded bake Potatoes Rock”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

A great eatery in a hard-to-find location but well worth the effort. Huge overstuffed sandwiches and the exploded baked potatoes (also available in quantity to take home) are simply outstanding

“hard to find...but worth it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

MANY choices of fresh and fabulous food creations in this deli-style restaurant. We haven't had anything we didn't like. I highly recommend the exploded potatoes! They soup is awesome, too!

“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 via mobile

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.
