The lines are long for hearty, unforgettable sandwiches filled with superior house-cured meats and all other sorts of goodies at this shoebox shop owned by Gina Batali—sister of famed New York chef Mario Batali—and founded by their dad Armandino. The oxtail sandwich special is unbeatable, but if it's unavailable or sold out (as specials often are by the lunchtime peak) order a salami, bresaola, porchetta, meatball, sausage, or lamb prosciutto sandwich with onions, peppers, cheese, and olive oil. Most people opt for takeout, though there is limited indoor seating.

This is one example where a place truly is worth the hype! Friendly family run "mom and pop" place filled with locals and a line out the door. The quality of the food is outstanding - a true value. It is so good!
