“In the middle of warehouses, but what a menu!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

This restaurant is a little out of the way...not far from Harry Grove Stadium, though. Menu is quite diversified--you can find salads, sandwiches, and great appetizers. We weren't too hungry so I opted for the Skinny Green Pizza, which is pesto and spinach and tomatoes, on very thin crust, lots of tasty spices, and about 10 inches around...you will find it on the appetizer menu. It was DEE-licious. Also did a sampling of the 99 cent exploded potatoes, which was a heaping cupful of baked potato with scallions, ham bits, really good. Vanilla creme soda was a throw back to the old days. Restaurant was busy on a Saturday afternoon, but plenty of tables, and a friendly staff to help you order, and deliver your meal quickly. Loved this place!

“Worth the out of the way drive...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Huge portions- we usually get 3 sandwiches for 4 of us & share, & still have leftovers. Wine shop attached is an added plus. Live the exploding potatoes!

“Very cool!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Neat little deli with a lot of choices. There is a fantastic beer selection in the back part of the restaurant and the boys there are enthusiastic and helpful.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

This is such a great lunch place in Frederick. The exploded potatoes are worth every calorie!!!!! Everything I've ever had is great! I would highly recommend this to anyone! It does get very busy at lunch time though.
