Terrific selection of turkey--platters with turkey sliced with gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, turkey reubens, turkey cheesesteaks...well, you get the idea. The turkey and sides were good, the service was good. If you like turkey, you have to visit the Original Turkey.

I had the two side platter. The turkey was very moist and hand carved right in front of me. The mashed potatoes were real. The sides were basic, nothing fancy, but good. The gravy was not homemade but tasted good and the stuffing was definitely made from scratch not stove top. My wife had a stuffing cranberry sandwich on wheat. She said it was great! We will definitely come back.

Fatty turkey.
Sliced ultra-thick and unevenly.
Tasted like thick, cold turkey lunch-meat.
Lettuce and tomato were wet and bland-tasting.
Bread was thin and soft. Absorbed all moisture on the sandwich

Overall my turkey sandwich was a wet, tasteless mess. Big mistake eating here. The only reason I didn't give a TERRIBLE score is because I didn't get sick after eating here.

We always get the platter with stuffing, potatoes and spinach! It is so good that my husband, who claims not to like turkey always eats half of my platter. So, I just order another to take home! The service has sways been friendly and enthusiastic!
