While I have not been to the restaurant itself, a meeting I attended was catered by In a Pinch. It was the best sandwich I'd had in a while, and even the chips and cookie were really good. I can't wait to go there in person -- it's great to finally find a really good sandwich place in Concord!

This place has always had great sandwiches but they've added asian food too! My friend and I had a large order of mini Chinese dumplings cooked fresh while you wait and split an order of fresh rolls while we waited.

The choices will make your mouth water and everything is really good. My favorite is their chicken salad on artisan bread.

I LOVE to have lunch at In A Pinch. They serve great food. Salads, sandwiches. These folks have it wrapped up. I have never had a bad experience in over 20 years of dining with them.

Stopped here for lunch and had a Cuban that was just OK, and Italian sandwich that was better. The soups tasted homemade and tasted very good. The name is exactly what it is. It'll do "In a Pinch". Certainly worth going to for a quick lunch and friendly service.

We often have lunch here when we visit Concord. The sandwiches, salads and soups are home made every day. This time we enjoyed a vegetarian quiche and a white bean pesto soup.
