We decided to try this place as the reviews were so good. Let me tell you that its reputation is well deserved. My husband went to get lunch. He had the Italian sub and I had the muffeletta.

Decided to try this place for lunch today, here's a tip call in your order and pick it up, much faster that way. The subs on their homemade bread were delicious. My whole family enjoyed their subs! Full and happy.

In the summer, lines are typically out the door. Good food and friendly service. Also nice variety of sandwiches to choose from. We like the Italian, the steak and cheese, and the egg salad.

This past weekend, we needed to grab some sandwiches before we headed to the beach. My husband suggested this place since we had not been and he has wanted to try it. It is nothing fancy on the outside but don't let that fool you! The subs were delicious! I believe the bread is homemade? The mayo was really good... More

This place is busy at lunch so I would go a little before or a little after. The sandwiches and subs are great. They have plenty of meat and taste just right.

Called in order for 3 subs and macaroni salad. Subs were great and very large. Macaroni salad was a little bland. Definitely going back before we leave the island.

We stood in line for salads and sandwiches and it was worth it. Fun place with great soda offerings. My spinach salad was very fresh and more than enough to to eat. The ranch dressing was homemade and very good. The chicken parmesan sub also was tasty!

Great subs and sandwiches. At popular times, the line can look long and intimidating, so call ahead and avoid the line!

Every now and then you just don't feel like cooking. So the wife and I wandered up to the sub shop and sat in for a change. I haven't had a meatball on whole Wheat like that in several years. Keep up the good work folks, your the best.
