Tiny's Giant Sandwich Shop
Posted by anonymous on 10/22/2009
not sure why anyone on here said they are slow and mediocre. I've gone over a dozen times as it's on the way to/fro my apartment and the subway. Every time the staff is super friendly and helpful, the food is FAST for sit down/dining (it's not a pop in deli) and the food is always great with great vegetarian options. I'll keep going here regularly. Go Tiny's!

Both were fairly good, but nothing I'd rave about.

I've loved Tiny's since I moved to the neighborhood. In fact, every time my mom comes to visit from Philly, she requests that we go there for lunch. Their BLT with avocado and sprouts is delish. I've never had a problem with the service -- it may not be all warm and fuzzy, but everyone there has always been kind and polite to me. In fact, there's a guy there now who may be a new manager and is super-friendly and always remembers me when I come in and asks if I want my regular BLT. I've never had a long wait for my food, either. Tiny's is one of my few LES lunch standbys when I'm craving something good but not fancy. Highly recommended.

Well I know for sure that their sandwiches are pretty good. I've spent a many summer days sitting on the curb eating their sandwiches. For a rainy day though...I wouldn't really order from the place. I got one of the large salads (I was in the mood for a salad), and it wasn't that great. The onion tasted a bit funky and the cheese a bit too bland for me. The delivery was kind of slow too...50 minutes for a salad?...maybe I had called just as the delivery man had just left, who knows. Meh...mediocur.

Tiny's is my favorite sandwich shop ever. The spicy rizzak is crazy good and I have gotten at least 5 friends addicted to it. They have a vegetarian option for everything and everything is always delicious. I think it should be a chain restaurant as it has everything available and everyone always loves it!! The delivery is fast and I like the low key atmosphere inside. If they had beer, it would be flawless!

I dont know if the other people having issues with the service go during odd hours or something but I've never had a problem. I used to live in Brooklyn and would occasionally eat here when I was in the area. Now I live a couple of blocks away and have have eaten from there fairly frequently (once a week or once every two weeks). I've walked in and ordered stuff to go, sat down to eat, ordered ahead and picked up my food. I've never once had it take more than 15 minutes for my food to be ready and the waitresses have always been at least polite. Again, maybe you guys had bad luck but for me 20 out of 20 visits have all been great. Great sandwiches, decent prices and quick. I definitely recommend this place.

I've worked in the LES for a while but somehow never noticed this place. I was hungry one day and decided to give it a try. I paid $5 for a tiny cup of soup that wasn't that great and took forever to be served to me on my lunch break, even though the place was deserted. It's smelled like bacon every time i've gone past the place so i decided to give it another shot and grab a sandwich instead. Much better choice. I had a grilled chicken and bacon sandwich with avocado and kept the dressing on the side. Again, it took forever to make despite the empty restaurant. For being a "giant" sandwich shop, i was surprised how small my sandwich was, but it really was delicious. It would be helpful if they had take-out menus so I could call ahead instead of wasting so much of my time waiting on the surly rude counter girls. I'll go back, but only if I can call my order in ahead first. It's kind of a dreary place inside with little personality on behalf of the staff.
