Great neighborhood sandwich shop. They need to work on their sesame rolls, though. They're too hard to make a good sandwich. Bagel-like consistency that makes the filling squish out. No worries though: get any sandwich on their round buns, which are great, or an awesome salad, any of their starters, etc. I have a feeling they'll fix their sub bread problem soon enough.

Perfect place. Fun atmosphere, beautiful decor, excellent service, awesome food at an affordable price. One of my favorite places in the area and the specials they have are always excellent and unique. The cocktails are fun and refreshing every time and they always have a frozen slushy version. They also have an awesome deal where you can get beer, a sandwich and fries for $13. They have a great brunch menu too! I highly recommend it.

Great food- so fresh, healthy and wholesome! Our favorite lunch and casual dinner spot in Durham! LOVE the back patio! Get the BLT salad with chicken and smashed avocado!

sesame rolls too firm. Hard to eat your sandwich without everything falling out and making a mess. You look like some kind of wild animal eating. Cool spot though

Came during a pounding summer thunderstorm and even then the patio out back is very inviting and we stayed dry. Only difficulty is that there is no way to get from the main dining room in the front to the patio in back and many customers try to go through the kitchen. Maybe saloon type swinging doors would prove helpful to stop people? Otherwise the sandwiches are really tasty, but they don't come with any sides so make sure you either order the sub or a round with a salad (great salads) or chips, fries or very nice sweet potato tots. Nice beer on tap mostly local and many other beverage choices. Order up front, take your number to your table and display it, pick up your napkins and silverware from the nearby stations. Parking is mostly in the back with a small lot up front.

So worth a visit! This shop has a big menu of delicious sandwiches made with fresh ingredients and I love their sesame rolls (from La Farm Bakery). You can get a full sub (huge) or a sandwich made on a round roll (recommended). There are hot sandwiches and cold and I've liked every one I've tried. I've also tried a few of the sides and the curly fries are my favorite. Seasoned well and perfectly crispy. There's a nice beer selection and there are 2 frozen drinks available. The prickly pear frozen margarita was a hit with my friends. There's seating inside the main building, nice outdoor seating in front, and a giant tent/beer hall out back with picnic tables where they'll bring your food to you. I've brought friends and family here and so far everyone loves this place, including me.

Visited some friends from out of town and they said I had to try this place! So glad I did! This place is fantastic! Freah food all made in house. Quality meats and sandwiches. Price is perfect here for what you are getting! What more can you get for a great lunch or supper: Beer and Sandwiches for the win! Must try!

We had a large family gathering on a Sunday so ordered three and a half sandwich platters chef's choice. Amazing! Our guests loved the sandwiches and we had more than enough for over 40 people. Eastcut delivered on time and the sandwiches were neatly arranged and labeled in the boxes so all we had to do was set them out on the counter. Highly recommend Eastcut for your next event!

The sandwiches are always amazing and will tide you over 2-3 meals. They have a wide variety of craft beers from which to choose, and the service is so, so friendly. You'll love it!

A great lunch option! Outdoor patio is spacious and nice during cooler months. Recently had the Spicy Gabagool sandwich, it was great! Also tried the sweet potato tots and mozzarella sticks, all exceptional! It does come with a cost, maybe a few more dollars than I’d like to spend for lunch, but it is very good!

Great atmosphere for a relaxed sandwich and drink. Much larger then meets the eye with a large covered area in the back complete with a bar. Our sandwiches were very tasty and reasonably priced. We also had a beer and a bloody mary that was on special. We will be back and would recommend.

I love this place. I come here with my colleagues and we always have a such a good time here . They have amazing cocktails and yummy mozzarella sticks and curly fries. Also their kale salad is just delicious.

Great food. Very friendly people. Good selection of beer. The fried buffalo cauliflower was AWESOME. Frankly, it was better than buffalo chicken wings. Would go back for that alone. Both our sandwiches were excellent.

This is my second time in this restaurant. The first time food was much better. There was more onion than beef in my sandwich. It is very clean and has nice staff.

I cannot give this place a great review. I don’t know how they charge $8 for a side of fried Brussels sprouts. They were tasty but it could have fit in my hand and my sandwich was only $7.50. The sandwich was good but not great. I got the East Katsu, the fried chicken had no seasoning and just tasted like breaded chicken which is practically tasteless.

I had the burger and it was decent (under-seasoned), but beware, their house-made "pickles" taste more like a cucumber dressed with sweet vinaigrette than a pickle. So if you're looking for a dill pickle flavor, you're out of luck.

Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and good prices, but the food was just okay. I got the dagwood sandwich and it was bland and dry. Hardly any bacon or avocado. My curly fries were also ice cold, and so were my dining partners. Maybe another hot sandwich would be better, but I doubt I will go back.

Tried this place for the first time on bingo night, and it was a great experience. Bingo is free in the “garden” on the first Tuesday of the month. Had the vodka lemonade which was the special for the night, which was delicious. Had a chicken cutlet sandwich, which was decent, but wish it wasn’t just a cold slab of mozzarella on the chicken, I’ll make sure to ask for it melted next time. Food is priced a tad high for what you get. But it was an awesome evening in a casual atmosphere.

We have had quite a few of the sandwiches and salads and all have been outstanding! My favorite so far has been the black bean burger! Incredible!! Also, we have gone there just for the curly fries, so good. Highly recommend!

Ordered the Reuben and curly fries for pickup. My order was ready about five minutes sooner than expected and was so good!

Two of my best friends got married in their back yard this summer due to Covid madness. Food is a big deal to them, and we were all worried about how to find something easy to eat outside, individually packaged, and delicious. Having always been a fan of East Cut I reached out to their catering department to discuss options and chose their boxed lunches with a variety of options. Two weeks later and we are all STILL talking about how good the food was. I was a bit concerned what it was going to be like after sitting for a few hours but it was all fabulous. I also appreciated how thoughtfully EC packaged it all, the ease of pickup, and how there were different types of chips to choose from. They even had no problem with adjustments to the menu for certain individual orders. Personally I got the katsu (a friend told me it was a must try) and it really was delicious! Sincerely EC helped make things very special for a picnic style wedding and I cannot be more thankful.
