Meal Takeaway
“Do not be thrown by their name or location (they are right next to a gas station). Their food is AMAZING! All their sandwiches are made with home made sourdough bread and it is to die for. The grilled cheese comes with tomato and basil and their italian sub comes with all the fixings. Great little hole in the wall. Even their fries are delicious! I suggest eating there to get the best taste.”
