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...pickled carrot or cauliflower. Other than pickled eggs, I dont care for pickled stuff, but was willing to try. It wasnt busy at all while there. Service was excellent. Clean and cute place. Prices arent bad. Can dine in or on the street.More

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

We visited when we were only in DC for about 24 hours on a sight-seeing trip. We found this place on a whim, and we were all desperate for a real meal that wasn’t from a food truck or horrible cafeteria. Our server was incredible,...she gave excellent suggestions (oh my goodness the meatball sub was TO DIE FOR), and she even customized the kids’ meals to their liking. If we’re ever in DC again, this will be our first meal stop.More

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.

We happened on this spot yesterday while in DC and decided to try it out. The food is fresh and delicious. The service is great and the workers are friendly and courteous. My husband liked his Rueben sandwich so much that he wanted to go...back and have it again today. So we ate lunch there two days in a row. I had the lunch special the first day - 1/2 sandwich (smoked salmon on ciabatta) and side (Israeli salad). Today I had the salmon burger and it was one of the best I've ever had. We also tried the summer cigar combo and they’re very tasty. Highly recommend!More

I don’t think you can go wrong here. Used this restaurant a couple of times during our stay. First night was taco specials, surprisingly tasty and good portion size. Servers are friendly, if occasionally getting orders wrong. Drinks reasonable and other food choices good although...generally only sandwiches, burgers, etc Don’t get me wrong, cordon bleu cooking this is not, however tasty and good portions Seems more of a locals type haunt, quite busy in early evening but quietens down later. Would recommendMore

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.

Was very excited about visiting this place after learning that Guy Fieri stopped here. I was expecting a lot and it was good. Fell a little short and didn’t have a wow factor. But the space is cute and service was good.

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...tasty. Great location and a great menu for all tastes. We will definitely be back!More
