This is one of my favorite places to stop for lunch. They have a nice variety of sandwiches, soups, wraps, and bbq. Not my favorite bbq in town but I tend to like the other stuff more any ways. Mac and cheese is awesome here! Staff is always friendly and service great. Depends on how busy they are, as some... More

The place always smells amazing. I've had quite a few of their dishes and they were always really good. Sometimes it's hard to get a table even though they have plenty of seating.

So, once again, I attended a catered event and had delicious food! This time it was a retirement party and the main dish was Pulled Pork from Carver's Deli & Barbeque.

For State College, this place isn't so bad. I really like southern BBQ, and with that as my comparison, I wasn't too impressed. The BBQ chicken was dry and not too flavorful without the BBQ sauce. That said, their menu is quite extensive, with a lot of sandwich options too. It was quite full, which suggests that it is a... More

If you are looking for a consistent quick lunch this is the place. I typically order a grilled chicken sandwich. The ingredients are always so fresh and the chicken breast is huge. If you are in a rush this is a much healthier and higher quality choice than any of the surrounding fast service joints. If you haven't tried this... More

The sandwiches are good as well as the sides. The wall behind the counter is the menu. The staff was really helpful. This was my first time. Will definitely be back.

Always a good sandwich and have food in 5 min that makes going for lunch an option. Very friendly and helpful when kids had questions or wanted to leave an item off. Could try to upgrade feel, it is a bit cold and minimal.

Great place to grab a sandwhich, a wrap or pulled pork. They have friendly staff and a huge menu. Dining area has about dozen tables. Highly recommend the mac & cheese with your pulled pork!

Lots of variety and options for sandwiches and BBQ. Reasonable prices. Service can be a little slow at lunch time. Food is fresh and tasty. A great place for lunch or take-home dinner.

The food is really good, but a little pricey. This was my first time here. The wall menu was a little overwelming.
