“Unique Decor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

The Lunch Box is a relatively new restaurant in Visalia but has been well received. The decor is industrial looking with open rafters and ducting showing. I love the look and they have done a nice job of enhancing the look with their extra decor. Food is fresh and healthy and the service is upscale cafeteria style. Great place to join a friend for lunch!

“Nice, family place for a good sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

Felt like a NY sandwich place, where its good ingredients, with lots of choice, and the sandwiches are made right in front of you. Worth trying again.

“Used to be better, go back to how you used to be.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I first learned soup, sandwich and salad shop at a Lecture, that served beautiful, big 1/2 sandwiches on croissanto and salad in clear plastic containers. I asked where they came from and was told, The sandwiches were beautifully done, fresh and tasty. We became regulars at the Lunch Box, after that, Over time, they have become rather sloppy in the presentation of their sandwiches and 1/2's are starting to look more like 1/4's. They scrimp on ingredients, like one thin, small ,wisp of a piece of red onion. They tell you because it's a strong onion, not so. They stopped putting a slice of cheese on the Tuna sandwiches. I had to ask. It is slow service, very slow. One time my take out was very old tasting tuna, on a hard croissant, stale, which is usually delicious. Cookies are delicious and fresh sandwiches, neatly made and presented are called for here, like the good old days. Come on kids, you are not the only sandwich place on the block. Get back to where you were.

This is really one of Visalia downtown's gems. Everything is prepared on site and it's all delicious. Nice, casual atmosphere, friendly service and a good value.

“Great lunch spot with a friend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

The Lunch Box is a great place to meet a friend for lunch. Fun atmosphere and the food is good. It is a little on the pricey side for what you get. At noon there is lots of chatter going on but overall a fun place to go for a good sandwich or soup.
