“Best Sandwich Place in Town!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Hands down the best place for a sandwich in Virginia Beach! My favorite: The tidewater. Salty smithfield ham, fresh creamy chicken salad, great bread. YUM!!

Have been eating here for years and will continue to do so on every visit.

Be warned: At lunch time this location will be slammed. Call ahead with your order or be prepared to wait it out.

“Still thinking about it 24hrs later!!”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

My family and I had a great experience at Taste Unlimited. Their signature sandwiches all sounded so yummy I decided to build my own with all of my favorite things. It turned out to be one of the best sandwiches I've ever had! The habanero chips were a nice addition and their gelato was satisfying. Like many others, I wish their was a Taste Unlimited in my hometown! If I see another during my travels I'll definitely be stopping in for a bite!

“Wish I had this place in my hometown!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We love the variety of quality of gourmet foods, gelato, and wine!
The carry out sandwiches weren't inexpensive, but they were very high-quality, generous portions and, most of all, delicious! My mouth waters just remembering! We bought an insulated Scout bag and took lunch to the beach. Yum! Next time, I need to save room for some gelato.

“Last 3 times here was horrible experience”
Reviewed June 24, 2014 via mobile

I have been here 6 times.
First 3 times were great experiences but last 3 horrible and that is why I gave average.
One time there was no chicken and it was a weekday at early lunch when they first opened.
I will not be returning.

What a great place. Highly recommend. Trendy, fresh local produce and products. The salads and sandwiches were amazing. My daughter lives in the area and took me here for lunch. They offered free sample of lots of different things, which is so nice before you spend hard earned money to buy something that "looks good", you want to make sure it "tastes good" too. Highly recommend....you'll be glad you stopped!
