The chefs at Darwin's are really creative- and as a result- most of the sandwiches are unique and really good. On occasion, you may try a sandwich that isn't what you want- but you can't fault them for trying different combinations. The soups are tasty...More

This is a great spot to hit up if you are in need of a sandwich. Menu changes weekly and always has great stuff on the menu. The staff is always friendly and quick to greet you, which always makes the experience better!

Dropped in about an hour before closing. Business was still pretty steady. I ordered the Cubano: Virginia ham, shredded pork, swiss, dijon, mayo and pickles on a sesame seed roll. It was excellent! Not a huge sandwich, but filling. As a side I had the...More

Food was average, and prices were on the higher side. Food tastes excellent though. Lots of variety, great for families, co-workers and friends. The biggest con is the small location- not much room-if any for a sit down and eat ordeal.
