We were in town for a K State prospective student visit, We ate at Rock-A Belly for dinner. Fun college vibe. We had great drinks and thought the chili was good!

They have sandwhiches and a full bar! What is better than a nice drink and a sandwich. They have an outdoor patio and is a super cute place to eat and hang out or catch up with friends.

This restaurant is delicious. The staff are courteous and the deli is small and comfy. They have a nice variety to choose from as a deli. The food doesn't take long to come out either.

This is an incredibly small deli-type restaurant with very limited seating, but it is a favorite for K-State students. I had the chicken salad pita and it was served with warm German potato salad. Both were very good. We had cocktails also. Mine was a Lemonberry and it was delicious with a very good, smooth taste. Service was very good... More

Nice break from the road. One of the best veggie sandwiches - Veg-Ta-Bull sandwich. Wonderful other sandwich selections. Up beat small restaurant. Lots of inviting personality.

Went here for lunch with a group of 8. Seated on the covered patio and our server was very good. Almost everyone in our group ordered the same sandwich based on a recommendation from within or group. the sandwiches are phenomenal! We will be coming back here again on our next visit to Manhattan KS.

This is the kitschy, ironic place to hang in Aggieville. It's right on the edge, so if you're a grown-up looking for a bar in Aggieville where you don't have to fight through the college kids scoping each other out, this is a great place to go, even on weekends during school. The prices, however, are on the high side... More

This is a small place....but good. Were there for lunch before graduation. Lot of locals and older folks their which I thought was weird. Food was good just watch menu because items are not as straightforward as they appear....Ruben had mustard not thousand island dressing. They have their own play on items which is good but........
