Wasn't too hungry, but wanted to eat something. I got a personal sized cheese pizza...it was REALLY good! (And pizza is not my favorite by far.)

A Cuban Sandwich in Ohio? Without hesitation, hands-down the BEST Cuban you will find north of Miami. The delicious homemade, impeccably seasoned bread is much of what makes a cubano authentic. Franklin Square Deli has every detail down to spec. Ingredients include: Ham, Pork Roast,...More

WOW! Thanks so much. We worked and worked on that sandwich for many years with external input from many people. I personally think it is one of the tastiest sandwiches in the area too! Thanks again for your review!

Home town restaurants and sandwich shops are very difficult to find these days, and especially those that are also outstanding. The menu here provides a wealth of really delicious specialty sandwiches that the chain restaurants simply can't sustain. Their hot sandwiches are especially delicious! Highly...More

Franklin Square is not a chain sub sandwich shop. Everything is so fresh and delicious. Great subs, fresh bread and amazing macaroni salad! Friendly atmosphere, and that small town Deli feel.

Great selection of salads, all types of sandwiches, sides and other items! The sandwiches are well-sized...ample but not overly huge portions. Fresh and tasty ingredients. The potato salad is especially wonderful! Will definitely return many times.
