Sandwiches are always good and consistent. The only problem is they are small, so a big sandwich won't fill up a big guy

Yesterday I went to the new facility and had the TYO turkey and swiss on wheat bun. $4.20 plus tax. What a steal for lunch and it was delicious. Too bad,I wasn't able to get it added to trip advisor. Great staff, very friendly and the hot sandwich really hit the spot. Will try again

Good lunch food at a reasonable price. Service is fast and food is fresh. I prefer this over other subs restaurants for lunch for it selection and value. Seating could be limited of you go around noon. Plenty of parking to be found. This is in a strip mall.

It is not a unique venue. The staff was very friendly, however, I like coffe w/my food and they do NOT have a hot beverage...they do have hot soup. The sandwich I had was typical for a sub and not great.

There is a "secret" menu here too that you can find online for those of you on low-carb and paleo diets. Fresh ingredients, good quality, natural. Nice menu selection for dietary restrictions too.

Salads are good, but you have to ask for extra ingediants to get a fair deal. The sandwhichs are light on meat and heavy on bread. Over all decent quality with good customer service, but not a great value. Stores have nice decor and seem clean.
