We got the raging cajun and the mantooth. The raging cajun (served hot) was the best sandwich I have had in a REALLY long time. It was large (took half home). The mantooth (served cold) was an Italian dream...thick stack of Italian meats.

We were tourists who stumbled upon this neighborhood sandwich shop. Creative, delicious varieties of sandwiches. Well worth the price.
