Punky`s, 186 Brighton Ave, Portland, ME 04102-2341, Portland
Solid deli and corner store
Best tasting homemade fast food
Best breakfast sandwich in portland
10 years ago I worked in Portland. I use to go to Punky's 3 or 4 times a week The specials were awesome! I ate lunch there on 3/1/19 and I have to say that the pepperoni chicken was absolutely delicious!
Thanksgiving sandwich is fabulous! Great service. I miss Joe.
Awesome steak and cheese sandwich, and very friendly people. Good portion sizes, great taste, very agreeable prices. Highly recommend!
Nice Mom & Pops to grab some quick grub
Great place to eat or just to stop in for a coffee
Bacon egg and cheese on italian toast = Best breakfast sandwich I have ever had.
Breaking stomach with so much good food
BEST MAC AND CHEESE! I am a true Mac and Cheese expert, and this stuff was 10/10. So cheesy and salty and gooey. Amazing.
Very, very friendly. Speedy service even when busy! Stopped in for a quick bite to eat between client appointments. Huge food portions. I will definitely go again!
This is a fantastic local sandwich shop that has been a lunch staple in the Portland community for a long time. They do sandwiches, wraps, and more including daily casseroles. They have a good amount of table space to dine in. The staff is friendly and well trained at what they do. The owner is really nice and frequently on location working hard with his crew. Stop in. I suggest you try the thanksgiving sub, a chicken salad sub, or a casserole of the day.
Love this place perfect for construction works if ur in area great price
Awesome little shop with fantastic food. Whether you are in need of a quick breakfast( I can't recommend the steak sandwich enough) or a delicious homestyle lunch Punky's is an excellent choice. Friendly staff and fast fresh homemade food.
If you want quick food that's not fast food, this IS the place. Delicious home style ready to go dishes. Have had everything they make and I would have it all again. Beef Stroganoff is my favorite though.
Just tried this place for a takeout lunch for the first time. I had always been creeped out by the buiilding/sign in the past...1. Got a delicious Turkey Italian loaded with meat and ingredients - Loved it!2. I craved something sweet so I grabbed one of their homemade brownies from the fridge. - Wow. Extremely delicious.3. Grabbed an orange and some Salt and vinegar chips as well which was convenient.Great quick friendly service as well.
Fresh home- made style food...
The burger I had was one of the best burgers I've ever had from a store/fast food establishment. It wasn't big but delicious.
Convenient. Store hours slightly limited. Good selection. Anyone can find something theyll like any given day as long as you get there early enough.
The food, prices, and convenience is great but the availability is obnoxious it feels like they are closed more often than open. 80% of the time I go there you guys are closed and that ghetto cardboard sign is taped to the door with a different excuse every week. The cardboard sign should get a raise he's there more frequently than the employees are!
My FAVORITE place to eat in Portland! If I'm in the area that's where I go! My husband stops in all the time for lunch. And I get so jealous! If you haven't tried this place you MUST!! Great homecooked meal with big servings! When we go with the kids I get them a half of serving!!
Doesn't look like much from the outside but they have really good steak and cheese hoagies.
The food here is so hearty and good. Definitely a thriving local business for a reason. The lunch specials come in a box exactly the size of your stomach. One of those meals you dont buy a bag of chips with because the bag of chips wont fit in your stomach lol.
I love punkys!! I only wish they had later hours so I could visit more often!
Excellent foods, reasonable prices, support a local family business
Hot Italian breakfast sandwich
Good food and good price
Best sandwiches on the planet!
The best place for comfort food! Great service, AWESOME food and really good prices/portions! Love this place so much! One of my family's favorite!
Good food, large portions, good value for the money. Locally owned and been around for more than 20 years, always a good sign! Food is very consistent. Specials posted on Facebook daily.
This lunch spot is a staple.Great prices,always food ready-2-go! Not to mention its smack dab in the heart of Deering Center.One of my favorites for sure!
Got some pre-made food from the fridge the other day when driving by. Incredible comfort food for an affordable price! Clean and great customer service!
Very friendly and the food is great
Punky's is delicious. I like anything and everything I order on that menu. I highly recommend it.
Great home cooked meals for the dollar. Heck with fast food places
New owners, not as much for the menu, but still great food
So good. They have these prepped lunches that are soooo good.
One of my favorite fill you up breakfast and lunch joints in town, a nice and genuine working class feed bag that offer tasty sandwiches and comfort food.
The loaded tuna sub is amazing!
Great food, good prices, done in or take out
Very nice food, drinks are normal price tho the sandwiches are a great price, large and taste amazing
I’d always heard great things about the service and the general pricing points of the subs, soups and sandwiches at Punky’s, but I’d never heard anything about how the food actually tastes. After a few visits to give the place an honest shot at winning my patronage, it was more than obvious why I’d never heard a peep about taste, flavor or palatability whenever Punky’s was mentioned in a conversation about sandwich shops in Portland. It’s because there isn’t anything nice to say. The food is wholly unremarkable. I mean, it is just as bland and plain as can be. And yet, this place has been surviving for years. It’s confounding.To a degree, I guess the old adage “you get what you pay for” rings true here, but you’d just be better off not paying for anything at Punky’s and getting something somewhere else.
Good food ready to go.
Best falafel I've ever had(and I've tried many good ones). I always get interested in trying their other offerings because they sound, look and smell phenomenal, but I always stick with the falafel. It's probably my favorite thing ever. When I'm in Portland for any reason, I always check to see if Punky's is open so I can get my falafel fix.
This place is a great little convenience stop for lunch! They've always got three or four items hot and ready to choose from. They packed these little plastic containers full enough that most people can get two meals out of it, for the about 8 bucks... They have a full sandwich menu, and I've yet to try it but my buddy had a steak and cheese the other day and it looked delicious! It had that nice soft roll with the crispy baked outside goodness 👍
Was a great place.... Sad it closed 😢
The food was great and the service was fast. The seating could be better the tables were all dirty.
