Stopped here for lunch during a college visit to USC. We sat at the counter and ordered some sandwiches. I had the Reuben Variation with pastrami, my daughter had the Junior Dipper and my son had the STP Dipper. We got the Brown Moose to go for my wife. All of the sandwiches were delicious and service was great. Will... More

The most popular sandwich shop in Five Points. I love the STP sandwich and chips. Haven't had a bad sandwich. Don't miss Groucho's!

I've been a customer of this restaurant for years, ever since moving to Columbia in 1983. My kids have been raised at this establishment. First, it was difficult to get someone's attention for service outdoors. All the tables were filthy, even after being wiped off, at my request. Then the most disappointing thing was the sandwich. I've been ordering the... More

The service was great, but the sandwich wasn't built as high as the price. The sandwiches are great but you are still hungry when your done. The prices are very high for what your getting.

Pretty good deli style food, definitely a good spot to eat if you want it fast. My daughter had the STP sandwich, he exact words were "you can't go wrong with the STP." Needless to say she liked it. I had the My Wife's Salad Bowl, it was a generous portion and very good. We then shared a sea salt... More

Best selection of deli sandwiches and salads. Try everything on the menu along with the bag of chips and dip them in the house dip as you eat them. Oh! must try the southern Ice tea, and don't pass up the warm chocolate chip cookies if they're passing them out.
