The sandwiches here are fantastic. I had the corned beef reuben and then the chicken salad supreme. Very tasty and service was quick and friendly. They offer a veterans discount as well.

Came here mostly out of convenience and glad we stopped by! I had the angry bird sandwich, which was a pepperjack and cajun turkey sandwich on grilled jalopeno cornbread. It was excellent! The house made chips were also very good. Great service too!
