Ordered the soup and half Turkey poorboy and a Ruben. The homemade soup was good. (Perhaps a little salty). The sandwiches were processed deli meat and a good bread an (they're a little heavy-handed with their sandwich dressing making the same which slippery to eat) They were out of tap beer but had Stella in bottles.
