5 of us stopped by 2 o'clock Sunday The man had trouble understanding what we order and ended up getting 1 less sandwich than we wanted plus ordered wheat bread and got white. The fries are just like McDonalds and unfortunately very cold (had 1). Normally I would've said something but I'm not sure they'd understand. It's an outdoor eatery... More

Good coffee; I had the egg cheese on croissant- was good, no complaints, though its not a difficult order. Husband had 2 eggs with sausage and roll- was nothing special- he did not care for sausage.

We love Sandy's sandwiches. On this trip we ordered the Sandy's and a Cuban Mix. They were both excellent as usual. The seasoned French fries and good, the hash brown "patty" is nothing special.

Not a bad sandwich. This is attached to a laundromat and is easy to drive by unless you are looking for it. The sandwich was good but don't go out of your way for it.

Sandy's is a little walk up two sided food bar attached to a coin-laundry on White Street. Excellent Cuban coffee (you got to try a bucci - jet fuel to start the day). The sandwiches are large on Cuban bread - I had a Sandy's special Cuban which was good for two lunches. The fried plantains are great. The Cuban... More

Was so looking forward to a good Cuban sandwich. These sandwiches are very bland. No flavor to them. Very disappointed.

It's a walk up window. So I grabbed my food to eat on the run. Took a shot of coffee and my Cuban sandwich "all the way" (lettuce, tomato, and whatever else is in there). Perfect quick sub. Hot and flavorful just like every other time I've eaten there.

I've eaten here 3 times while using the laundry facility. Its great to have all in one place. Fast service, right off the grill and tasty. Prices can be a bit challenging at times for some folks but it is overall a good spot to munch and wash.

They may be known for their Cuban sandwiches, but they have long been passed by other establishments in both quality and taste.
