Good fresh food. Good luck choosing what to eat... it is all good. Oh and they are fast so you don't have to worry about being late for work. The place is clean and friendly.

Stopped for lunch since I saw they had GF buns available. What a great sandwich! Good balance of filling/meat with the bread. Very friendly service. Laid back atmosphere. Liked it so much I came back the next day as well!

PJs has delicious, fresh-made sandwiches, wraps, and salads. Great place to grab a picnic lunch as well!

I'm not sure why this place is so expensive. Our food was tasty, but didn't warrant the hefty price tag. Unless they are using local or organic ingredients, the price is not worth it.

This is not a cheap sandwich joint, but you'll always get good ingredients carefully prepared. Their daily soups are very good too, and I enjoy the salads too. My favorite is the Greek salad, and the chicken you can get with it is moist and...More

We went here for lunch. The service was polite and fast. I really love Jed the location and that the inside was not stuffy and you had room to eat. This was my first time and definitely not my last time before I leave town....More
