Great sandwiches. Still as good as when I first visited over ten years ago. Much better than sandwiches from the chain franchises. There are a few small tables available for sitting.

We were visiting Exeter. We popped in to Billingsgate for a quick sandwiches for lunch. The sandwiches were excellent. The deli was crowded with locals which is a good sign.

I highly recommend stopping by to grab a bite to eat, whether to take it to the park, the beach or back to the office...Everything, from soups, salads to sandwiches, is delicious. I also love the prepared meals for those rushed nights.

I worked just down the street from Billingsgate and eat lunch here a few times a week. The staff are wonderful and the food is great - it's a traditional deli and they also have some ready-made dishes for takeout. I have to recommend the Reuben - it's the best I've ever had! Their tuna salad is really delicious as... More

I like the variety of choices here. Sometimes I get a chefs salad. They have lots of homemade salads like potato, cole slaw, chicken, tuna, etc. Nice sandwiches made to order. Hot entrees often, like meatballs in sauce. So convenient. Nice people working there too.

I've gotten lunch here a few times, the food is very fresh, the service is great, and their selection is excellent. The prepared salads and sides are very good, too.
