“Best lunch spot down town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Awesome employess who know you by name. Great food. Low cost. Small, convienent, and quick. In my opinion, the best breakfast and lunch place in down town Jacksonville. Favs of mine are bacon, egg, and cheese in a pita...and chicken salad in a pita for lunch. I go here a couple times a month at least. For newbies this place is cash only but there is an ATM inside if you forget.

“Lunch Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

Lunch time a line will form out of the door. Service is fast. Very personably. The sandwiches are delicous, especially the Russ Doe Special and the Mesquite Chicken. Make sure to top it off with some yummy homemade desserts.

“The place where locals eat lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2011

If you get here around noon on a workday, get ready to wait in line, but not that long. The staff is huge here and you move quickly, just know what you want before they ask you or you might get skipped. I dont think they have a sandwich that costs more than $6. I go with the grilled chicken pita every time, but I hear their cheeseburger is just as good. You have to try the homemade banana pudding, the perfect ratio of bananas and nilla wafers and whipped cream. I have to stop typing now, I'm going to Russ-Does.

“A hidden gem with Banana Pud'n That KILLS!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2010

My co-workers and I were turned onto this hidden gem by a Jacksonville native. This unassuming sandwich shop located in a house bustles with activity. The sandwiches are amazing, particularly the Russ Does Special, season ground beef served in fresh pita with a variety of condiments/toppings.
The banana pud'n (that's how it's spelled on he menu board) is so good that it almost seems criminal that it only cost $1. Velvety pudding, nilla wafers, the whole she-bang.

The entire staff is so friendly, and sitting outside on the picnic tables under big shade trees is perfect. Prices are so good, matched only by the food.
