They overcharge, never send the correct food, and then YELL AT me when I call to ask for the correct food. This time, they told me to never call back, even though I was nothing but nice. HORRIBLE customer service, especially by the owner who's name is Ally. Complete snob.

My family and I went there to celebrate my sister's birthday. She chose this place just for the name, since she is a south paw herself, and it was a fun outing.

some how always manage to mess up my order. Either I'm missing something or they just simply send me meat instead of chicken . It has happened one to many times. I will not recommend to anyone. Terrible service over the phone .

Love the Cajun chicken sandwiches. I swear we stop by t least once a week. The pizza is pretty good too. We really need to try more from the menu but we can't seem to stay away from those flavourful sandwiches!

Went to Lefties for lunch with clients. There wear only two other tables seated when we arrived. It took 45 mins to get three subs. Service was exceptionally slow and it appears that they could only handle one order at a time. Half of my table of 5 were finished eating their subs, before the remaining 2 had received their...

Ordered hot wings & pizza - both were delicious. Looking forward to trying other items on their extensive menu! A definite asset to the neighborhood!
