    Great sandwiches! The menu changes every so often. Communal seating, so if you don't want to sit next to strangers bring friends. FYI Return of the Gyro is awesome.

    In addition to meat, PQM stocks a wide variety of boutique and gourmet grocery products. No visit to the store is complete without scarfing down at least two of their excellent sandwiches. Read more

    The braised pork belly, with its succulent, melt-in-your-mouth goodness, made me forget the lamb completely. Read more

    Shaved beet salad is tasty. Half chicken with the sausage and fries will fill you up. Great beer selection. And - pork belly, son. You need to order this. Succulent.

    If you're in a hurry get a grab and go sandwich. They are 8 bucks as ways delicious. My favorite thing to so is get rillete, pimento cheese and a baguette and snack on that all day ;)
