This place is one of a kind! The food is awesome but the portion sizes is what really stands out. They have a burger the size of a barstool seat! Takes 5 pieces of cheese to cover the patty! A meatball sub that is 6lbs(I think). It literally is the biggest sub I've ever seen. Every day is a different special. Some days it's the French dip(amazing), wimpy burger, grouper fingers and fries, ect.. The grouper finger basket is ridiculous! More than a dozen big grouper fingers fried with french fries! My favorite is the grilled chicken club pita. The flavor is amazing and it comes with bacon.... Lots of bacon! The last one I bought had 8 pieces of delicious thick cut bacon on it! More favorites include the Reuben, gyro and the Philly cheese steak! Come hungry!
Very unique hole in the wall where the owner/operator, Chris, will learn your name and know you every time you walk in(as long as you come in regularly). Very neat place that you should be sure not to miss

This place is an aviator's favorite and you'll often spot pilots and flight officers from the nearby Naval Air Station here for lunch. Their serving sizes are very large and some of the sandwiches are very good while others are ones I'd avoid. The one thing I would stand up for in any debate is their gyro. It is so delicious! Everything tastes delicious on it and it is a large portion - you will not leave hungry by any means.

The atmosphere is a little dank, but it certainly does fulfill the "hole in the wall" role that I think it aims for.

We love the Hip Pocket and go there often! The food is amazing and the portions are huge. Chris is an amazing guy and he gets to know you by name pretty quick. We love the Reuben and the Gyros. The desserts are fabulous too! Just make sure you bring cash and go early. They don't accept credit and close fairly early in the evening. This is definitely a hole in the wall, don't expect the Ritz Carlton, but I think that adds to the charm. Wonderful place with wonderful service. It keeps the military boys happy!

Nice people and great food. Reminds me of the Greek restaurants I've been to in the "big cities" around the country.
