    Can't go wrong with any of the sandwiches. You'll want to come back over and over again and can probably have a new sandwich every time. Download their app so you can pre-order and set a pick-up time.

    Hands down one of the best versions of the BLT I've ever tried here. The dutch crunch was killer and all the ingredients were great. Be prepared for very pushy pigeons in the outdoor seating area.

    I always go in wanting to try another item from their wide selection of vegetarian sandwiches, but I ALWAYS defer to the Vegan Handsome Owl! Sweet teriyaki, spicy wasabi, yes!

    2.HOLLYWOOD'S SF CHEESESTEAK is my best choice in there... If you are starving try to stuff your sandwich with mozzarella sticks or beer battered onion rings!!

    A total zoo at peak lunch hour, but usually rockin' good tunes and they keep the service great and friendly under pressure! Tasty and creative sammies!

    Any meaty sandwich here will give u that comfort food feeling. Spiffy Tiffy combines yummy pesto, chicken, avocado on chewy Dutch crunch.

    Their board doesn't contain all their sandwiches. You gotta check online, but they can make anything they have on the official menu.
