Slow cooked marinated pork, so tender it falls apart, on a fresh baguette with onions, mayo (or is it aioli?) and romaine, with jalapeños. Wow! Be aware - this is one messy sandwich!

This is a tiny joint, with long lines much of the time. Sometimes you can get a place to sit inside, more often you can get a place to sit outside at a communal picnic table - but don't be deterred, this is worth a special trip.

Yes, they have lots of other things on the menu, but the Caribbean Roast sandwich is the featured item most people are waiting for. Don't confuse it with "grilled pork" which is more like a cube-steak and not the same thing at all (and not worth it).

Had to give this a try after watching a few YouTube videos on this place. This place is definitely worth it. Had the Caribbean roast and also a steak sandwich too and they were both an explosion of flavor. Sweet taste from the onions with a little spicy kick.

We did a phone in for take out. We had the Caribbean pork and the grilled fish sandwiches. The flavor of both sandwiches were outstanding. The sauce/dressing in the sandwich adds a new dimension to the overall sandwich. The size of the sandwich is substantial. Glad we had the chance to try.

Fantastic sandwiches! We had the pork and shrimp sandwiches. Both were so full of flavor that we just wanted to keep on eating. The only problem was that we were too full. I would eat here every week if I could.

The food wasn't the greatest. I had the tofu delight and I found it to be kind of bland. The tofu doesn't seem to be seasoned in and of itself before going into the sandwich. It was also a VERY messy meal. The caramelized onion pieces are so massive that it cause everything in the sandwich to slide out plus the sauces are quite wet which doesn't help the situation. Imagine an onion cut into 3 big slices and that's the width of the pieces. Get a knife and fork!
Overall it wasn't bad, but I just wish it was a bit easier to eat, better seasoned, and that the onion slices were a more reasonable size.
