Fantastic little sandwich deli (and more)! A must try...but with a few pointers. – I have to completely disagree with "jhogan7799" (and why would you "recommend" after such a terrible experience?).
Regardless...I work a block away from Primo's and I make my way down there a couple times a month. EVERY single time I've been in there I find the staff to be super nice, especially the manager (? maybe the owner, mid-40's, blonde, mom-type).
My order is almost always a Turkey and Swiss on Wheat with everything but onions, and I have never been disappointed with the results! My wife often gets the Turkey Dip (like a French Dip, but with turkey) and she LOVES them.
Cost is a little on the spendy side, but I can usually split a large into two meals. A hungrier eater might be a bit put off by the cost. I want to say a large sandwich plus chips and drink will run you in the $8.50+ range. Then again, you're paying for a nice sized FRESH sandwich, so, you make the call.
One thing to watch out for though...Primo's seems to draw a nice lunch rush from a nearby high school, so the line can run a bit long during their breaks. That said, I've gone down many times at both noon and 1:00pm, and I've never had to wait more than a couple orders.
Agree with another commenter that the aesthetics of the deli aren't the greatest, but they do do a nice job of posting local articles of student athletes and such to create a nice "community" environment.
If you go regularly, definitely get a freebie card. 10 large sandwiches = a free large. 10 half sandwiches = a free half. And I think after 4:00pm they run a daily special where you can get 2 large sandwiches for $9.99, which is a nice deal. I haven't confirmed that in a while though.
They do offer more than just sandwiches too. I had really good chicken noodle soup once, and also had a great berry smoothie once too. Mostly I just stick with the Turkey sandwich!
Glad to have you nearby my work, Primo's!
If you're in the area, it's worth a stop! – My counter service has always been congenial here. I don't find the atmosphere terribly inviting, but I always order "to go" anyhow. I work less than a block from Primo's, so it's very convenient for me. They don't have drip coffee, but are always happy to make me an Americano with a shot of cream instead. Excellent vegetarian subs and soy mochas, too!
I BELIEVE YOU ARE THE OWNER "DON" – I am an inside editor for a local newspaper. I know that this man " Don " is the owner of Primos deli. Sorry I dont think reviews count for your own business. I recently ate at this deli. I found the counter clerk a "heavy set" older blond, was quite rude. She then proceeded to lounge around at random customers tables, not caring that angry customers were walking out due to lack of service. She never asked any details about my sub. I ended up with a 12 inch french dip on white. I specifically ordered a 6 inch french dip on wheat. She then proceeded to touch my food with bare hands after handling cash. I was throughly discusted. The food was decent, meat quality was somewhat poor. Over all I give Primos a "C"
Don – The new (hot) Spicy Chipolte Italian sub is awsome!, and the fresh baked cookies are really good too. Primo's is my favorite place for lunch.
