This narrow spot has seen a few ownership changes and faced growing competition (a Subway to one side and another sandwich shop on the other), but it still remains our go-to place to quell a sandwich jones. Combos like shrimp salad and roast beef, and chicken salad and sliced hard-boiled eggs enable you to address multiple cravings in one shot; and an ever-present daily special, usually involving something hot on one of their excellent pretzel rolls, provides a good bang for the buck. Sandwiches are boxed rather than wrapped, which helps maintain a just-made quality, but note to ownership: Mounding has become an issue. Please distribute lunch meat evenly over the entire bread surface. Thank you.
