Why had I not heard of this place before? On the suggestion of one of my wife's collegues, we went there for a BLT today. Absolutely sublime. The tomatoes were certainly fine enough given the season, the bacon was plentiful and perfectly cooked, the lettuce crisp, and the mayo, well, there was plenty of it. All together, a great sandwich.

From what I understand, the egg sammies they serve at breakfast are good as well.

As we were sitting on the bench out front enjoying our meal, people were filing in one after another. At least one of them nodded approvingly at our fare and said, "Best sandwich in town."

Check them out. They're on 86 right above the 15-501/54 highway as you are heading into campus, it's on the right.
