Went for lunch with some associates from work. Got there before the big rush and still waited a little while for food. It is not -fast food-, so that wasn't unexpected. Taste offers great variety, so I had the special, and Ahi sandwich. I waited maybe 10 minutes. The food was great. everyone else had similar experiences. During our time... More

I ordered a half Boardwalk. It was OK but not worth 55 minute wait. Several people left after ordering. They also messed up and had to remake my sandwich

This place was chaos with an average/expected Saturday lunch crowd. Order your food and then wait for 45-60 minutes to get it. Most people (40%) left in frustration during the time we waited for our sandwiches. That's right - 60 minutes for a turkey sandwich. Don't waste your time.

We ordered the pulled pork with coleslaw and were very disappointed with the small portion of coleslaw. The amount of pork on the sandwich was adequate but for the price of the combo assumed we'd get a healthy portion of coleslaw. It comes in the same size container as the sauce the put on the side. It was great but... More

I have been to taste many times since my in-laws (and now my family as well) live close by. The iced tea is amazing with flavors of peach. I dream about that iced tea and may buy a pack of it on my next visit. The sandwiches are always delicious! Does get very busy, but is always worth the wait:

Stopped at Taste to grab sandwiches, salads and drinks and headed to the beach. You can also eat indoors or at the picnic table. Everything we saw looked yummy. The sandwiches are excellent - I tried the Boardwalk and the BLT Brie. Wine, ready to go foods, chips, snack mixes, drinks, chocolate covered peanuts, anything you can imagine! Definitely worth...

The food portions are amazing, their signature dressing is incredible, and the gelato is great! There is nothing negative I can think about this.

My daughter and I stopped for a quick breakfast before catching my flight at Norfolk airport. We arrived at 8:45 and although they didn't open until 9, we were invited in and immediately served. Not really a breakfast place but we had a ham and cheese on a crescent roll. It was excellent! The staff was so friendly and coffee... More

Maybe I am overly critical, but when you tell me someplace is a "local favorite" I guess I just expect more than deli meant, bread, a slice of cheese and a smear of mayo. It was fine - fit the bill for a working lunch - but nothing memorable. We enjoyed this meal as delivery, not in-store.

We stop at Taste for the excellent sandwiches. My favorites are the vegetarian First Landing and the turkey and bacon Northender. My husband likes the Great Neck. On Saturdays Taste fills at lunch time with Navy reservists who travel from their base to have lunch. They do a big lunch business at this location. I guess at all locations. Saturdays... More
