My friend and I came here for our lunch break. Tracy is always nice and many people at work are in agreement with me that they provide great service. I have eaten subs at pretty much every place in town and I have to tell you, if you like meat this is the place to go. As far as I know, no one comes close to the amount of meat on their subs.
I have such mixed feels about this review. This place is located next to a gun shop. Let me say this controversial statement: I love guns and support safety-educated, trained, eval. passing individuals in having them! All the hunting and shooting for game and sport, please. In short. I'm a huge fan and proponent of the right to 'bear arms' BUT I'll never support Trump. And, the gun shop, connected to this deli (are they all one big place--hard to tell) was flowing a MAGA Flag. Idek...did we just accidentally support a Trump loving business? I'm not even going to critique that, bc I believe local is local and we have to support one another (but, you know he reduced big business tax to raise yours, right? I can't come back or recommend BECAUSE of this level of hatred)...I digress:
First, here are the positives, because this is probs why you are reading and, obviously, you're trying to get something more than those damn chain restaurants...
1. My burger was huge and juicy (not medium rare, as requested, ---done---but I enjoyed it).
2. My Grandma got the Reuben and found the meat, which looked tasty, super delicious! It's advertised as Boar's Head, which has top shelf deli meat.
3. She ate most of her Reuben, but it was too filling to finish. And, I ate the other half of my burger at home. This place won at meat.
So, on the menu, my burger was supposed to be Big Mike's Spicy one, comes with fries, for about $11...we were charged separately for fries.
My Grandma's Reuben was also about $11 (I'm rounding down).
Our fries were soggy and basically inedible, as well as cost extra, along with two drinks. The total was over $30. We felt like: guess tip is included.
So, expensive. Not what we'd expect to pay at a local deli or shop. The service was a bit awkward, but, it felt local to me and so there seemed some care there...even if the prices were ridiculous.
Overall, not worth the cost. Our meal, tip included (20%), should have been under $25. For location, taste, and service. But, you know, AVOID ALTOGETHER BC OF TRUMP AFFILIATION. NEVER GOING BACK DUE TO THE MAGA FLAG FLYING...No matter how much I love a good country spot, with that extra country vibe...I'm giving it two stars because I ate my burger and it was all right, and my grandma liked her Reuben.
Stopped here for a quick sandwich while I was in the area. It's a typical deli that you'll find in Upstate New York, which is mostly for making sandwiches, but one will find that they do have a selection of deli meats, coolers for drinks, things like that. So I decided to order a sandwich. I was disappointed that they did not have a tuna sandwich on the menu, so I decided to order a sausage and peppers sandwich on a sub roll instead. One has their choice of sweet or hot sausage. I decided to go for the sweet sausage sub.
The wait for the food was a bit long, especially since I seemed to have been the only patron when I was there, but the food was good. The cook cooked some garlic into the sub roll for a nice touch, along with some garlic cooked into the sausage and peppers. I'll be willing to give them another chance when I'm in the area, but hopefully they will have improved a few things by that point.
If you haven't been here you should stop they make awesome subs...I get a full size and spilt it with my husband it's to much for one person. ...we also got a Taylor ham,egg and cheese breakfast sandwich today so good....also the homemade clam chowder which we gotvto go and had for lunch it was better then any I've had in Oneonta.....they only have 5 tables and it's very old school I really like the place and the owners are very helpful when ordering....they have specials every dsy they are open....my new favorite place for take out also.
