    They have to be doing something right as there always packed with customers so I ignore bad reviews but be patent as they make the sandwiches as fast as possible but it can be a big delay

    This place is the worst, most overpriced, unprofessional place ever. The owner is extremely unprofessional. There is too much competition in town...you shouldn't bother and go elsewhere.
