While visiting my daughter (I live in Ohio) Newk's was recommended by her co-worker. It is a deli style eatery with a nice selection of salads, sandwiches and soups. The place is clean and staff very friendly and efficient.

My daughter and granddaughter stopped by for lunch. I ordered their 10inch BBQ chicken pizza, expecting to only eat half and take the rest home. I don't know if it was the delicious flavor or the super thin crust, but I ended earing the whole...More
