    Great sandwiches coming out of such a small joint. This place has a line out the door everyday at lunch, so plan accordingly. They have one of the best hoagie rolls that I've tasted outside of Philly.

    Fast & friendly service. Sandwiches start around $6. Good selection of chips & bottled sodas. Credit cards. Everything on the menu is good. For me it's Uncle Sam's Club. A MUST try if you're in STL.

    Redbird, turkey, capicola, bacon, provel, lettuce, tomato, and sweet red pepper sauce. It's delucious the flavors if the meat compliment each other well and the red pepper sauce ties it all together.
