The first thing I noticed was the size of the menu. This place isn't just about cold sandwiches and subs. They also serve po'boys, pasta, soup, potatoes, paninis, and salad (they actually have a large salad bar with a lot of organic items). I was in the mood this particular day for something hot and something hearty. I decided to with the pastrami melt po'boy. This sandwich consisted of hot pastrami with swiss cheese and Russian dressing. The sandwich costs $6.59 and is served with a healthy side of out-of-the-bag potato chips and a dill pickle spear. With a fountain drink my total came to $9.24.

Taste: 8/10 The quality of the pastrami was great and so was the bread. I really enjoyed the meal. If I could have gotten a little more tang from the dressing it would have been pushed from good to great territory. I'm looking forward to going back to try some of the other menu items to see if they are up to the same level of quality in the ingredients.
Value: 8/10 First of all I'm not deducting points for service issues here due the fact that I think this place is pretty new and I've only been there once so I have no idea if this is a pattern of behavior or an anomaly. Since I had to pay the check before I received the meal I have to say I had a little sticker shock over the price of the meal (drink included) being $9.24. That seemed like a lot to pay for lunch, but after I got the food and realized it was a big portion with good flavor I felt a lot better. I think the pricing is competitive with similar restaurants. Next time if I decide to get water instead of a pop that would drop almost 2 bucks off the total cost. Not bad at all Ask yourself do you want a sandwich from Scrubway for 5 bucks, or a hot sandwich here with really good meat, bread, chips and pickle for a buck 60 more. Jason's also has a To Go station if you want carryout.
