Looking through the menu, I ordered a pulled pork sandwich which comes with salad and potatoes. Unfortunately, the potatoes were beginning to cool by the time I got to them. They were, however, well seasoned.

As for the sandwich, the pulled pork was juicy with a sauce whose flavor was dominantly tomato with a bit of salt. Actually, it tasted a bit like V8. The bread was a bit tough. Overall, I liked it. 5:44PM PT

Eating here last week, I decided to come back and try something else. Between the tri-tip sandwich and the lamb sandwich, I decided to go ahead and try the lamb. While the meat on its own mostly tasted overcooked, the onions were good. Unlike last time, I found the bread was a bit chewy.

As for the potatoes that came with the sandwich, I was a bit disappointed to find they were once again cold by the time I got to them. To be fair, I was in the restroom and the food was ready when I was done, but are potatoes supposed to get cold that quickly? Well, I'll happily take cold potatoes for restroom usage any day.* 5:33PM PT

Overall, the portion was reasonably sized considering I'm eating less. However, I would consider the meal overpriced, because the quality was barely above average while the quantity was lacking.

I should also note that the place has plenty of places to sit - most customers seemed to order delivery or get their meal to go.

*The restroom is downstairs and has a keypad which requires a 4-digit code so remember to ask for it before going downstairs.
