I got a roast beef poboy, I needed to kill some time and wanted to try something different. It was a good poboy, not overstuffed, but good for the price. It's a good value, not a tourist trap.

It is so easy to get in and out of this neighborhood grocery. The produce is fresh and the deli good. Try a muffuletta for a quick lunch or to cut into pieces for a potluck. Zaras also makes a good sandwich tray.
