I go here at least twice per week. They have gluten free bread. The staff is very friendly. They always remember me and remember what my typical order is. They have indoor seating, outdoor seating, and drive through. Thanks for always taking good care of us when we have lunch with you.

Great sandwich shop with actual gluten free buns that are good. My team and I eat here at least once per week. My kids beg to go here also.

I have been coming here since the late 1970's and they offer the best avocado sandwich I have ever tasted! Service might be spotty at times, but sandwich has remained perfect!

This restaurant claims to offer healthy food, but they do NOT post any nutrition information on their website. Want to contact them? Can't do that on the website either! However, IF you call them, and IF they aren't too busy, and IF you still have a fax machine, they might FAX you the nutrition information. So I got their fax,... More

The food is very good. The meal portions are huge. Value is very good. All the staff are very nice and friendly. Definitely a place to visit for a good healthy quick meal. They have a drive through and indoor seating, with some tables on a patio also.

I went to Great American hero because a family suggested it. I personally do not like sub sandwiches but, I went anyway because I didn't want to be a stick in the mud. First off, the look of the restaurant just makes you want to smile. Especially when you notice the mailbox on top of the roof that says "Air... More

Rude staff and tangy roast beef. I first are here in 1977 and remember this place fondly. We used their drive through a few months ago and enjoyed the food and experience. Today's encounter was just the opposite - there was virtually nothing good about it. My ciabata bread hero was fair though.

This place has been here forever for a reason - it's really good! The food is always fresh, and the service is fast & friendly. You might have a hard time during lunch rush getting your car into the drive-thru off of Lemon Avenue, but the good news is that the line moves fast. Also, there's plenty of parking around... More
