Placed carry-out order for family. Ready in 10 minutes. All agreed meal was good but not great. Would have used on-line ordering but required an item family member did not want. Convenient location.

Bill and his staff always provide a great sandwich and will customize to your palate. The breakfast sandwiches are outstanding (3 Little Pigs is my favorite) and the lunch time fare is delicious as well.

This was my first time to this restaurant which took me a while to find since the original location on South Street is closed but still listed on TripAdvisor which was the first juke move of the trip. I have since requested that it be...labeled as Closed on the site. Of course, when I drove to B Street the street sign was missing! Another Carlisle juke move of further deception ... you can’t make this stuff up. Inside it is a simple place with a very large white board /Sharpie marker menu and enough tables to seat about 18-20 people. Note they have one of the newer credit card machines at the counter where you need to enter a tip amount then sign. My order was a Large (12”) roast beef sandwich and side of tater tots ($3). I had asked if the turkey was fresh or processed and was told by the owner, Billy Barnett it was processed however the roast beef was cooked in house. The better choice was to go with a fresh product. What I Liked: - $1 off a sandwich Tuesday! - The roast beef was very tender and a little red so not over cooked, very good overall. - The shredded lettuce was cold and crisp, and the tomato slices cold making for a fresh tasting sandwich - There were 28-30 tater tots in the serving which was a value. They were very crisp and moist inside. What I Did Not Like: - I was told by Billy that the large sub roll was 12” and later found out it was at best 8-9” - The sandwich had diced Bermuda onions on it which I did not order but later found out Billy put in on the list of items for the sandwich in error - The horseradish sauce was more on the mayonnaise side then horseradish side - The tater tots were very salty. Two hours after I ate them my mouth still had a strong salt taste in it. My Prime Minister of Beef rating is 7.8/10 Moo’s landing this place at the #8 spot of the 22 places I have had beef at in the Carlisle area since February 2019. My overall rating placed this restaurant at #55 of the 99 restaurants I have eaten at in the Carlisle area since February 2019.More

I was out with a friend today and we couldn't decide what to do for lunch and so we decided to come here since we have always had a great experience there. I'm glad we did. I got an Italian sub and it was yet...again a good one. My friend had a Roast Beef sandwich with au jus which the guy who runs the store recommended. It looked really good. My friend said that he would defiantly like to have that sandwich again. It was over all a really nice meal and yet another wonderful experience. We will defiantly keep coming backMore

I’ve been there for two meals today. For breakfast I had a sausage egg and cheese sandwich with a coffee and it was great! Then for lunch I came back with my wife and mom and had the lobster bisque, while my mom had a...tuna salad on rye and my wife had their three little pigs sandwich. Everything was great! Will be our new morning spot.More
