“Worst service in the area”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

The waiters are super inefficient , they hardly attend you. Waiting for your food is way too long. The waiters forget what you ordered which worsens overall the service they give. I've been there a couple of times because the food is nice but stopped going only because of the service

“More a bar than anything else”
Reviewed February 18, 2012

This place is an ok bar with below average food. The sandwiches have very little meat and apettizers consist of mainly frozen premade food. Not good for having a meal, but decent to have a beer after work with colleagues. Used to open 24 hours, which made it a default afterhours hangout. Not anymore.

“Good food on a budget!”
Reviewed January 21, 2012

Nice local sandwiches! Clean for its type. Go there if you need a quick lunch! Go before 12 or after 1 though!

“$4.69 fpr excellent large sandwiches on wonderful crusty bread - great lunch bargain”
Reviewed November 11, 2011

My wife and I each had a LARGE double sandwich. She had fries and coke. I had coffee. Total bill was $12 for a very delicious lunch. Highly recommended as lunch stop on your walking tour of Old San Juan. MUCH superior to most fast food restaurants.

“Good food, bad service.”
Reviewed February 14, 2011

Great selection in sandwiches, probably the best on the area but the service is terrible. I would only recommended just for the sandwiches.
