Small place, no frills, GREAT sandwiches - best Tuna melt I've had outside of NYC. Fast reliable service in a diner like atmosphere that makes you feel at home in a local cozy joint. Soups are homemade, very comforting all around.

This is in Bald Eagle Drive, close to Walkers' Marina.
Not the most exciting from the outside, but well worth going inside, and trying the food.
The place is almost always packed, and a bit of queueing might be necessary, it is worth the wait!
Not elegant, but if the food is the most important thing, this is for you.
Lots of people, especially locals, do takeaway, and the staff knew them all well - always a good sign, I think!
Try the Chili, with cheese, or one of the many hot sandwiches,or the meatballs!, Enjoy!!

The food is still the best for lunches. They have added some new wraps and sandwiches and as usual, my crew loved all of them!!

Try the meatballs, either in a sandwich or a bowl they're awesome! Don't forget to order a pickle.....
