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!

What a delicious sub! Down right, delicious. I had a turkey sub, and went out on a lib for the first time an added cucumbers. The owner (very friendly and down to earth) suggested that I add the red spicy topping to my sub, and boy am I glad I listened to him! This was the best sub I have... More

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 generally good meats. I tried the meatball sub, we also ordered a veggie wrap and... More

Obviously, everyone knows the name Boars Head and its a favorite. The service is quick and hospitable. Wrapping the sub in butchers paper adds a nice twist to... More

Nice family owned place. If you are a vegetarian that eats seafood they have more than just the same old tune sandwich that every sub shop has.
