Hole in a wall little place , doesn't look like much from the outside. Although signs on building promise crab cakes and other items. No such thing , only various combinations of sandwiches. Nothing to write home about, sandwiches are plain old sandwiches .

We heard from an employee here that Emilio had been Julia Childs sous chef years ago and also had received two additional recommendations by local folks, so we were naturally up for delicious sandwiches. We were not disappointed! My "Mexican" and my husband's "George's " were superb on fresh from the oven baguettes. Highly recommended, just know they only take... More

delicious sandwiches in the middle of quaint Edenton downtown. Emilio and his wife were friendly and had great stories about this great little town. We had 4 sandwiches and shared bites and each were delicious on their own. Great place for a quick lunch.

A mediocre over priced sandwich at best. They only accept cash. That always makes me uncomfortable when I know how much I pay in taxes.

Great spot for a casual lunch. The sandwiches are good and the bread is delicious. It is not fancy but good food at a good value.

Plenty of interesting sandwiches on the menu to choose from. Had a Carolina Cuban special sandwich. Pretty good. It tasted a bit more eastern Carolina pulled pork BBQ with vinegar based sauce than Cuban but a very good sandwich especially if you are partial to eastern Carolina BBQ. In an old small shop with delightful decor with a european flavor... More

All I can say is the bread - the French baguette was amazing - I had the French Broad with turkey and apples - delious! My husband had the No Name - only open 11-3 and they some times run out of bread - so plan accordingly -

Had a great lunch at Emilio's! We enjoyed our sandwiches from an eclectic menu, fun atmosphere, and lots to look at in the decor. They also have sidewalk tables for anyone inclined to dine al fresco. A fun place for lunch in Edenton!
