A good deal for a good sandwich. I have never been disappointed, but then again I have always gotten the roast beef sub. Make sure you have cash. It's the only thing that they take. They baklava is excellent and inexpensive too!

I have been going there since 1976. Being from NY it's hard to find NY style subs in Roanoke. They don't accept checks or credit cards because of the low, low prices. Bring your cash for a great, fast meal that will fill you up.

I shall never know what this visit's food will taste like. Eight of us visited on the recommendation of an acquaintance; upon arrival and seating, we discovered the place does not accept credit cards. As we were an out-of-town business group, with our own expense accounts, this is how we pay for meals. We left straightaway, as none of us... More

I've been visiting this restaurant for over 20 years, and I think it's going downhill. First, they still don't take credit/debit cards, which is a little ridiculous in this day and age. The last few times I've been to the restaurant (once for lunch and once for dinner) the food was poorly prepared. Hot pastrami sandwiches should be hot, not... More

First off you need to know this restaurant is CASH ONLY - no CC/Debit/Checks, but that has nothing to do with the quality of the food and the service you receive! We were there right at lunch hour and were promptly seated and attended to; this is a large restaurant, with apparently an equally large carryout business from the front... More

Some friends and I went there for a casual dinner. I has forgotten how good the food was. Not only was it good but the portions were huge. It was enough for me to take home half and have for lunch another day. This is definitely on the list to take my grandkids to for a great lunch. The only... More

The absolute BEST sub in Roanoke. Price is great for the amount of sandwich you get. Not quite that hungry...they have the Torpedo which is half the size. Either way you will not be disappointed. Many other sandwiches also. Plus try their warm German Potato Salad and the Baklava !!

This restaurant truly has the best Sailor Sandwich in the state of Virginia and probably in the world! (New York Delis don't make Sailors !). Their other sandwiches & menu items are also excellent! Great cold case for take home. Over all - one incredible deli !!!
