(Editor's note: During my last visit to Alexandria we stopped here for lunch at the Downtown location. The food was delicious! The service was great too. I had the Hot Beef Sandwich and loved every bite! Others with me enjoyed the Chicken Parmigiana Sandwich, the Philadelphia Steak Sandwich, and from the children's menu, chicken and fries. It is on our list of great Louisiana restaurants to visit!)
