The food at Damon's is excellent, especially the chicken salad. After living in the midwest for 15 years I moved back here. First time into Damon's I asked how the chicken salad was made, wanting to make sure it wasn't with sweet relish in it (midwest style, ugh). The lady I was talking to behind the counter explained EXACTLY how she made it (no relish thank God) and it was excellent!!
Since that time 15 months ago I've tried numerous other subs from them and ALL have been good. Every time I'm near Augusta I stop in for chicken salad and a few other items to go. Good people, good prices, EXCELLENT food. VA appointment tomorrow so I'll be stopping in afterward for lunch.

I visited Damon's for the first time today and had a turkey club on wheat (my fav). As I was ordering I was thinking about how many employees were behind the counter working and as the orders piled in I could see why. They all seemed busy and it was obvious that they cared about getting you in and out, if need be on your lunch hour and I appreciate that. I'll be back.
And P.S. the club was very good.

I grew up here in Augusta, but now live out of state. I've eaten all over the country -- and the only other place &'ve ever had pizza approaching Whipper's/Damons was in Nashville, TN -- New Your Style and it was pricey! So there I am - eating my expensive pizza and thinking "Wow -- I could have had Damon's"!
Furthermore - it's not a big secret that their bakery provides a nearly endless wholesale supply of italian bread rolls to other establishments , etc -- the likes of which can't be obtained anywhere else at any price. While it's true that they hire a lot of high-scoll age help; -- it's also true that they're helping younger people get some financial footing & assisting w. real life's lessons about career choices. While the owners are devoted to their faith -- I also know that they are very non-discriminatory, accepting people. No trip back home would be complete without a trip to Whippers / Damons.

I'll still eat there, even if they are Christians. I think that they have delicious pizza, and it doesn't taste like plastic (like some of the franchises around town.)

I've been to Damon's many, many times over the years. We have made special trips (40 miles) just to get their pizza. The service has always been very good and I would highly recommend them. I don't know what happened with the reviewer who complained about being asked for a tip. Never happened to me and, as I've said, I've been there many times and hope to go again. SOON! If you're looking for ambience or a romantic atmosphere, this isn't the place for that. It's more typical of just a sandwich shop, or even a bowling alley. But if you're loooking for good food and service, Damon's is it! I've always found their prices very reasonable as well. The fact that they have been in business for more than 50 years says a lot as well.

Pros: Food, Prices, Service

Cons: Atmosphere - not that kind of a restaurant. More of a sandwich shop.

Best Sandwich I have ever had. Been there many times and will return time and time again even though I live one hour away. The comment about leaving religion outside from the other review. I guess most of us know who should stay outside and I doubt it is God.

I would recommend that no one eat at Damon's, ever. I found Damon's to be an untrustworthy and offensive establishment. The woman ringing us up asked, "any tips on that?". We were ordering at a counter, not being served. Who would we be tipping, and for what? It is an attempt at guilt-tripping when someone asks for a tip, and I think it is distasteful and wrong to do so. They then charged me a dollar and some change more than what I ordered plus tax. I looked all over the menu trying to find something that would add up to that extra charge, even something indicating that the glasses for water were not free, or cards had an extra charge. I could not find anything to account for that extra money. Also, while checking the menu for an indication of that charge, I noticed it said "GOD IS LOVE" on the back of it in giant capital letters, quoting "Matt" and some number. First on that, there is no Book of Matt. It's "Matthew". They had plenty of type space left, at least get it right. Second on that, I find it offensive to even see something like that in a public place. If you want to have that on a bumper sticker, go ahead. If you want to run a public restaurant, leave it outside. Public places should not shove one religion in people's faces. If you want to put up phrases from multiple world-wide religions, fine. If you want to mention no religion at all, fantastic. But don't shove yours in my face.

Pros: The grease on the pizza only made us mildly sick.

Cons: The woman ringing us up asked for a tip, though doing nothing to earn one, and overcharged anyway.
