Do not eat here! Waited 25 minutes for 3 sandwiches at 5pm with only one other group in there. And it was quite clear that they couldn't have cared less. And after that wait, the food wasn't even good.

The Panini Grill is a simple and non-assuming place. However, the food is very good. I had a meatball panini and my husband had sausage and peppers. We both enjoyed our sandwiches. The Panini Grill is a pleasant spot for soup and sandwiches. It is...More

We were just looking for something quick to eat (counter service), and me being vegetarian, this place was ideal. Bonus for me: they have geeky decor! Star Wars stuff hidden all over, I love that sort of thing. And a couple veggie panini options for...More
