This local shop is popular with both locals and tourists alike. They offer terrific sandwiches, piled high with meats and cheese. The owners are super friendly and have quickly become a favorite spot in town.

This is an awesome small deli located right on the main street in Lexington. Nothing fancy, just great service and delicious sandwiches. Prices are great and the sandwiches are huge! We had sandwiches made and ate across the street at the small park area.

Places around here try to get all weird and fancy. My husband and I love this place, although the parking can be a pain in the butt - it's on the main road, so you will never find a spot "out front". But, it is what they say - a DELI - great big sandwiches with decent pricing. Just love... More

We purchased food here before the Liberty Ride Trolley. Really GREAT customer service experience. And the sandwiches were DELICIOUS!!! We ate across the street on park benches at the Lexington Visitors Center.

We stopped here for a quick lunch and the menu was very expansive. We ordered the club sandwich and is was delicious. The prices are very reasonable and the staff is both friendly and helpful.

Sandwiches are very large. My husband and I shared a turkey club with bacon and it was filling and delicious...this coming from someone who is not a big fan of deli sandwiches.

Not worth the stop. Sandwiches are decent, other menu items are cheap. Quick service but not personable. I was disappointed, expecting a place rated so highly to be better.

A friendly, fast place to duck in and pick up a very generously sized sandwich made to order. Many different creative sandwich options (my husband especially enjoyed his "Thanksgiving dinner" sandwich with roast turkey, mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce). A wide variety of kettle chips and cold drinks complete what you need. With only two stand-up tables and four swivel... More

After spending the morning in Lexington, we were looking for something quick before heading over to Concord, but NOT more burgers! LOL! We found this place just a block from the visitors center and the line was short. We each ordered different sandwiches, many different kinds available, lots of drinks and chips to add on. There isn't much space for... More
