  • Best Sandwiches in town
  • They have n
  • So slow but so good
  • We may be hundreds of miles from The Big Apple, but Chioccas knows how to do a classic pastrami on rye right: thin slices of hot pastrami piled high on toasted rye bread with a side of chips.
  • The Italian. Hot. Do it.
  • If the beast feast is too much get the made in turkey. Always eat the butter pickles
  • Eat a sandwich, drink beer. Wear your blue collar. This place is cool.
  • Try the Downstairs sub! The best!
  • Best sandwiches in Richmond. Hands down. No competition.
  • great food, fun place to share a pitcher and hang with friends :-)
  • Omg sandwiches are all HUGH! $ WELL SPENT!
  • The men's bathroom has a Guinness Stout poster on the wall to remind you what you can enjoy after you wash your hands. Adequately appointed wash room. 1 out 2 soap bars.
  • Chiocca's is a one-of-a-kind Richmond establishment. Intimate, almost cloistered, you need to surrender your worry of time to enjoy its timeless pleasures.
  • Great little spot in a basement. The grilled cheese is good (not gourmet but the simplicity is part of the charm).
  • The homemade ice cream sandwiches are uh-mazing. They're from Nightingale ice cream and the chocolate peanut butter is one of the best things I've ever tasted!
  • For first timers the M.I.T. Club (Made In Turkey CLUB!!) is never a let down. You're sandwich is cooked in a 1939 panini oven that is well seasoned. So each batch takes a bit but so worth the wait
  • Decent craft beer selection. Friendly service. But come in ready to have a drink and relax, because it is going to take you 40 minutes for a cold cut sandwich, which is delicious.
  • Sandwiches run about $11 each. Worth every penny. Delicious, fresh, home made, and HUGE. The Dagwood is ridiculously big. Couldnt even finish half!
  • The "Beast" sammies never fail.
  • One hour for a sandwich!!!
