    The short rib sandwich is awesome. It's almost like a Barbacoa. Delicious.

    Their daily special is consistently overpriced. Go with the usually - ribs or spicy pork.

    Just ridiculously good sandwiches, on bread that is surely crafted by angels.

    Pretty unassuming, tucked away into a back alley. As soon as you turn the corner though - the fresh bakery smell wafts through the air. Pulled pork sandwich is perfect, light & tangy.

    Deviled egg sandwich is tasty. But not sure of the $8.50 price tag.

    Everything here is great. Really. Even if it has cilantro (which I usually despise), like the curried cauliflower sandwich.

    Food is good. I come here frequently. Enacted 10 minimum on cards recently. Would have been nice to know ahead of time. Kinda leaves a bad taste in the mouth on an otherwise great place.

    Write your order down for them. Worst service ever. Had to ask my order four times and they got the other three orders for customers in line wrong as well. Hard to believe this is owned by Sentinel
