We stumbled upon this place by accident, but it looked interesting so we tried it. The very polite, overworked, stressed out college boy who was working warned us upon entering that he was alone and backed up with orders. It could take a little while, he said. Well, we had 40 minutes so we took a chance. Bad idea. More than 40 minutes later, we received our sandwich and a wrap, both fairly tasty, but not worth the wait. Some poor people who arrived before us still had not received their complete order. Others who arrived to order were told to come back later because he was too backed up.

Bottom line: it's summer and there's little college help available, but the manager of this establishment clearly doesn't care about keeping up the place... (no straws, soda machine out of order, dirty, ridiculous wait times for food, and lack of employees who can multi-task).
I felt sorry for the guy.
Fat Sandwich Company, please clean up your act!

Thank Wendy K

It's summertime and most of the students are away. The the campus is quiet. Restaurants keep minimal staff and some sort of let their guards down. Fat Sandwich company falls into this category. The self-serve ice machine was down, they were out of napkins, and had a roll of paper towels for people to use. It was not very clean inside. I should have carried out. That said, the fat sandwiches are big and tasty. We also had them make a customized cheeseburger with peanut butter and jalapeño. It was delicious! Pay attention to the menu specials. Example: 3 sandwiches for $20. Danno says "Go ahead and 'book it' to the Fat Sandwich Company, but either carry out or use a delivery service." You're welcome.

WOW at a sandwich. The Fat Luigi! A meatball sandwich with fries and mozzarella cheese sticks on it as well.

Food was fresh and made to order. We ordered 13 sandwiches in all and every one was made fresh and as ordered. Staff very nice and helpful. Dining in or outdoors. Small but good atmosphere.

Greasy food mixed together in a dump. What can go wrong????? Nothing try it. Especially after a night of partying. I would recommend. One of a kind!
