The sandwiches are unique and better than the run-of-the-mill sandwich and burger shops. Portion is good. And it has much better service than most counter-served restaurants. The only negative is that they put too much sauce/dressing in the sandwich.

Excellent sandwich and good conversation with owners. The Panera Fig veggie sandwich was a measly of complimentary flavors on fresh crusty bread. Would love to have this place in Ann Arbor.

Nice selection of Sandwiches with an Indonesian flair and flavors that are very unique. Fresh baked bread surrounds great textures and healthy offerings that are very filling and delicious. REALLY recommend that you try this place. I've come back several times and tried most all the sandwiches.

We had a delicious lunch at Soulwich. The sandwich is huge and all the ingredients are very fresh. Saved half of my sandwich for lunch the next day and it was still yummy. Good alternative to the "chain" sub shops. Very friendly staff. Love the Asian flavors!!!

My friend and I were looking for a quick bite to eat around dinner, so we stopped in for a quick round of sandwiches to go. After politely asking the lady at the counter about the menu and what sauces come on a sandwich, I ordered the #8 with chicken and specified which sauces I could eat on the sandwich.... More

Not a chain. Food made by humans. Tastes good. Does not bombard you with feel-good propaganda the way NafNaf, Chipotle, and OMG do.

We stopped here for lunch before a visit to Northwestern University. The food came quickly and was delicious. It was very busy at noon, but settled down within the duration of our lunch. I would definitely recommend this restaurant for a quick, healthy lunch. It's something different than your typical sandwich.

I really love having Soulwich in Evanston. The sandwiches are fantastic, though I have to admit that I pretty much always get the #4 Indonesian Ginger BBQ with the smoked, pulled pork. So good. And if that's not enough, the family that owns the place is super nice and dedicated to making it successful.
