“Best Deli Sloppy Joe aound”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2011

This is a hole in the wall joint that has stood the test of time... I have been going out of my way to get great subs here fro nearly 25 years. We often take our sandwich to go, the shop has just a few tables. When we take our sandwiches we cross the street to Citi Spot Coffee and get our drinks there... We have a seat outside and enjoy our town. Clinton is a great destination spot. After lunch week look for desert, ice cream at JJ Scoops or something from any of the bakeries in town. Come spend the afternoon, be sure to get lunch here... the price and quality cannot be beat.

“OMG how great it is!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2010

They do subs and soups like no other. If the run out of bread they close. It is so tasty and they have the best soups. Try a sloppy joe if you have never had the deli version. FAB. The staff is great and you can order it for parties. Casual awsome deli...just a few seats inside so you may have to take it to go if it is the lunch rush!

“The best subs all around!”

I would update the hole in the wall. Make it look a little cleaner. Best subs ever. The soup is to die for!

“5 Star Quality soups!Delicious,Homemade&Generous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 5, 2009

A hole in the wall Restaurant that should be opened at night for dinner. The soup at Sub Base is better than some 5 Star Restaurants can even begin to try to make at a fraction of the price! If we lost this Hometown Restaurant it would surely be a Giant Loss to the town of Clinton and the surrounding community! The only problem is that it is not big enough and not open in the evening. It is too bad that we don't have more Great homemade, hometown, downhome, NOT fast food Restaurants like this in America!Go down and try it if you haven't and if you know it.....Keep going forever!

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2009

The poor guy should have gotten flood insurance. I'm tired of these merchants who make money off of the town people beg for help when they have a problem.
