    Fun small sandwich shop, decorated with phish posters and other memorabilia. The blast sandwich was very good! I'll make this a frequent stop

    I'd punch your mom for a Reuben from Brown Sack.

    Try the blast "The Danny Way." It deepens and enriches the meaning of the original blast.

    Everything... No kidding... It's all homemade.

    The BLT with Shrimp was basically a party in my mouth. Legit food. Vegi chili was good too.

    The owner is super laid back and creates a welcoming, homey feel. Easily the best Reuben sandwich and shakes (including vegan) in the city!

    Shrimp & Avocado won't regret it!

    Get the Apple Ginger Slaw with your sandwich.... its delish!

    Spicy coleslaw is the jam.

  • Serious Eats

    Sharp cheddar, mozzerella, and American are used in the grilled cheese, fusing into one gooey sandwich. The apple-ginger cole slaw works well as the crisp and fresh antidote to all that cheese.

    It's true the BLAST is the best ever but their meatball sammie is my second fav. Be sure to get a shake, it'll be worth it.

    This peanut butter milkshake is one of the greatest things I have ever put in my face.

    While cute, this new space is by no means hip. Should you care? Not really—the sandwiches (serviceable), chili (robust) and shakes (heavenly) taste the same no matter where you have them.

    Stop by Friday night 6-9 for a purposefully not fancy damn good diner burger. They invent an amazing special burger every Friday as well, and sometimes have them left over on Saturday.
