Went here for the first time last night and I can’t stop thinking about the buffalo chicken sandwich and curly fries!! So yummy. The Buffalo chicken sandwich didn’t feel too heavily fried either which was a nice surprise. The atmosphere is very cute. We sat inside since it was cold but the outdoor patio looks like it would be super vibey during the late spring / summer / early fall. Will def be back!

Very pleased with Eastcut - the sandwiches are awesome, we’ve had the mozz sticks, tots, and fries and all are great. The customer service has been really good as well. Check out the drink specials and you’ll be ready to head on in! I’m vegetarian and have had both the mycoprotein and eggplant and both were fried really well. The house made sauces are delicious.

Pretty good sandwiches and fries, but the prices? Way out of line. Over $70 for 3 sandwiches and fries! And no table-service, no atmosphere. It was clean, and the staff was friendly, and they were open when we were hungry at 3PM, unlike their neighbor, Succotash Kitchen.

While the ingredients where nice the sandwiches where incredibly bland. Both the Westcut, and the Dagwood just tasted like turkey and sesame seeds. Definitely nice turkey, but there was no flavor to the sauces, and they where just way to expensive for what they where. The curly fries where tasty, but again it did not make up for the fact that it was over $40 for a very boring lunch for two people. Not bad, but really not worth it.

Our son moved to this area and he choses the places that we should check out. The inside of the building looks like a small sandwich shop but there is a good size outdoor seating area. It is covered & is partially enclosed on the size. The food was exceptional. My son enjoyed the steak sub and I got the daily special which was the steak sub with extra ingredients including pickled onions & additional spices. I suggest checking out their specials. Option 2 was a strong contender. The staff was friendly & patient with us as we asked questions.

Nestled on the edge of the newly minted University Hill neighborhood lies Eastcut Sandwich Bar. A trendy little, family friendly venue with a cleverly repurposed green house covered picnic area. Bull City originals may recognize this site as the once popular Pipers Deli/Pub. Eastcuts offers top notch delicatessen sandwiches and sides. I opted for the cold cut Italian hoagie and was impressed with the sesame seeded hoagie roll. The Buffalo Cauliflower bites were spectacular and the sweet potato tots were crispy and flavorful. They offer many delicious dipping sauces that let you combine and create your own favorite flavors for dipping and dressing your sandwich. This is a casual kid friendly place and there were lots of young families enjoying the crisp Fall air on the covered patio. No matter what you like to eat you ate sure to find a menu offering that will please. The Falafel Goddess was righteous! I’m already planning another visit so I can try their Chicken Cutlet sandwich. I’ll deduct one star due to the beer selection which was neither broad nor impressive. Offer more local brews from some of Durham’s outstanding breweries and we have a winner!

I recently got the the Dagwood turkey and what can I say?!! The sesame buns are fresh - not many places carry buns / rolls like that. I got it without some of toppings it normally comes with.. the pesto, tomato and avacado shmear. The turkey is roasted in house. I can’t wait to bring my husband who is vegetarian because they have a lot of options… not just a sandwich loaded with lettuce, tomato, onions and cheese kind of thing. They have protein options of falafel, fried eggplant cutlet and or an impossible burger. I’ve had their befall cauliflower and homemade mozzarella sticks before. Both are great. The last time I was there, was during the pandemic when I think they still served bergers (I wish they’d bring those back) since they have fries and sweet potato tots. I feel like those belong more with a burger but just my opinion. Their burgers used to be great… You can’t go wrong here. Great options and the prices are reasonable!!

This place is rockstar. The sandwiches are unique, fresh, tasty and huge with lots of options to customize and make it your own. The sides are plentiful and everything is always well made and on time. Well worth the trip for us to visit this place regularly.

Really delicious and unique sandwiches you won't find elsewhere. Everything tasted fresh and homemade. Will definitely return. Was here once during Pandemic and obviously that made the experience less than. perfect because of the social distancing, while the food was still good. But this time, it was a slam dunk.

I’m a Philly woman & Eastcut was highly recommended, so…I ordered the Balboa Cheesesteak. Probably the best one I have had in NC! The rolls are sourced from Guglehupf Bakery. The meat was well seasoned, no gristle or fat. The combination of in house fresh mozzarella & American cheese sealed the deal, very satisfying 😋

Great sandwiches and service, I usually get the Turkey. Cool hangout spot for just a beer. It’s now open to the public inside so I recently sat inside and I love the gas station vibe and cleanliness. Staff was helpful with orders and details. Never had a bad experience. Keep it up Eastcut much love!!!

I come here on Fridays and it starts my weekend on the PERFECT foot! So many different sandwiches, and I've never had a bad one.

Went to new Raleigh store. Tough to find, but sandwich was delicious. The Dagwood. Guy at the front was very nice and helpful. The 2 guys that own the place didn’t bother to speak with any customers and say thanks for the business. If I had been opened only for a week, I’d speak to every customer and thank them for the business.

We loved this little place! Parking was surprisingly plentiful, the staff were really kind and helpful, and the food was amazing. The decor inside was eclectic, and the music was good too. We'll absolutely be back here. I got the falafel goddess sandwich and it was so fresh and tasty.

This is a great hidden gem in Durham for lunch! I stumbled upon this place and got a fried chicken sandwich. It was absolutely delicious! They have really simple no-contact ordering and plenty of seating inside and out. The parking can be a little tight around lunchtime during the week. Definitely worth checking out!
