After seeing this on TV, I was all about trying it. I would liked to have more meat on the sandwich. Still was really good & I would order again. Tried the Israeli salad which was also good. I personally didn't care much for the...More

Not a "bad" experience, just had higher expectations based on reviews. Will not be back and wouldn't recommend to friends.

Really good food. The Cigars are really good. Get the sampler. The pastrami & poblano is incredible. The steak & egg burger was as also really good. This place is a must.

I visited this place and was surprised with the exceptionally great service. I ordered a Steak & Cheese sub with a Caesar Salad and absolutely loved it. The cider on tap did it for me. I will definitely return here often.

Stopped in here to have lunch with a friend who works at the Federal Court. The menu is amazing and everyone around us seemed very pleased with their food. We chose the appetizer rolls, a cheeseburger and a pastrami sandwich and all were perfect and...More
