Was a bit nervous of what to expect but the Korean pulled pork with Kimchi sandwich and lots of coriander was excellent - fresh and tasty. Partner enjoyed his porchetta sandwich and said it was excellent. Nice beer too so a great lunch.

Loved the food here! Came here with a friend who had a Groupon and we definitely took advantage of it! We both got separate menu items and both shared each other's meals. We left full and happy and have come back multiple times! -Ricky V.

Visited Lardo for lunch 9/2017. At age 58 I've had all kinds of sandwiches along the way. The Korean Pork at Lardo is the best I've ever had by a wide margin, and at $12 it was well priced. I'd say it was enough for...More

Definitely, yes! No reservations - counter order, grab a table! Sometimes it can be busy so you still may want to allow a bit of extra time. SOOOOO worth it!
