We saw this driving in, and we tried it. My wife had a muffeletta sandwich, I had a Turkey sandwich. The kids had a hot dog and burger. Every meal was good. It is a neat place, and comfortable.

We usually stay in Corning on our way up to Portland. The Olive Pit opens early, is close to the hotels and gas station. Sandwiches are good and they have a great selection of olive products.
