I used to come to the Goal Post Sandwich Shop at least once a week when I was stationed at the Naval Air Station down the road. I always remembered it as a friendly/family owned business. This week was no different. It is like I have not been gone for 10 years. It's such a great place with excellent food.... More

I stopped by the Goal Post this afternoon for the first time in more than a decade. Their Camel Rider sandwich is as good as I remember it being, although it isn't as good as the Camel Riders produced by Richard's Sandwich Shop.

Michael and team have been delivering top notch, mainstay sandwiches such as Camel Riders, Gyros, and burgers for 20+ years and are the closest thing to an "institution" in Avondale.

The Goal Post Sandwich Shop serves delicious, fresh sandwiches at great prices. While it is no more than a "hole in the wall", the place is a clean and inviting local institution. Why? Friendly owners, consistently great food and reasonable prices. A must try if in the area for breakfast or lunch.

The Goal Post is a fantastic small/medium sized breakfast and lunch restaurant with a casual setting. The food is excellent. I highly recommend the egg salad. The owners/staff are friendly and warm. The service is very fast and efficient. The prices are extremely reasonable. Excellent restaurant!

One of riverside's gems. Family owned and operated. All of the sandwiches are are tasty and it is all fresh. My personal favorite is the chicken salad with tabouli in a pita grilled. HEAVEN ON EARTH!!

Family owned and run. I have been going for 20 years. Mike, at the counter, never forgets a face and name. Old time seating but clean and quick.
