Another great pick of a lunch spot thanks to TripAdvisor reviews! Gyros not made with lamb are hard to find. Had a great one in South Windsor, CT about 30 years ago and another in San Francisco! Now I can have them a lot more...More

I work in Old Saybrook and live 60 miles away. I miss this place on the weekends when I want a great grinder. I love the cold cut combo. Lettuce and tomatoes are always nice and fresh because they put them on after toasting. Great...More

Passed by this place many times and never gave it a second thought. When we finally stopped, the menu is outstanding. Across the board from Italian to seafood. I've only tried the italian dishes and they're great.....
