Looked for a sandwich place on the way to Bisbee for the weekend, this place is really good, lots of choices to choose from on the menu, friendly staff and cookies are very good too. Looks like a young business crowd that frequents the place on a main street in Tucson, very easy to reach and lots of parking too.

A simple, well run place without pretensions. If you want to choose from a hearty selection of tasty sandwiches at reasonable prices, this is a place for you.

Those who appreciate a delicious sandwich should find something here they like. You can get either a "melt" or "unmelt" sandwich. All the sandwiches are named after American cities. There are 13 "melt" sandwiches and 8 "unmelt" sandwiches. A sampling of the menu includes the Philadelphia (Italian roll, ribeye steak, mushrooms, grilled onions, peppers, American cheese); the Kansas City (Sliced chicken, cheddar, BBQ sauce, bacon); and the Baltimore (roasted beef, cheddar, horseradish spread). Those from the Philadelphia area will appreciate that you can buy a few Tastykake products here. I didn't see the Tastykakes until after I ordered my "Los Angeles" sandwich (pastrami, sauerkraut, 1000 islands dressing, cheese, on rye). I also found out the owner is originally from Philadelphia. You order at the counter and your name is called when its ready. Great, no frills atmosphere. There may not be another place in Tucson or in Arizona that sells Tastykake products. Tastykake is a Philadelphia baking tradition that makes snacks that include butterscotch krimpets, small peanut butter filled chocolate cakes (cookie size), small individual sized pies (rectangular shaped), and more. Melt also has great salads and sides such as potato salad, macaroni salad, etc. I highly recommend this sandwich joint!
