Always good. Pleasant, fast and tasty subs. When I come in from Texas and visit Morehead City / Atlantic Beach, this is a favorite stop. My advice is simple. Just go get a sub. You're welcome.

Our group got some sandwiches and a hot dog and everything was fresh and tasty. The folks in the shop were friendly and asked us about our trip, where we were from, etc. We will definitely visit again!

I had lunch here with my family on a recent trip to swim at Atlantic Beach. We got there right at lunch time, so there was a little wait, but nothing that put us out. They use Boar's Head meats for their sandwiches, which are...More
