Hoagies are just delish!

Stop by San-dano's Hoagies, Cheesesteaks and Italian Ice shop if you are in the town of Ashland, VA, or passing through on Route 1. A tiny place with huge taste! The hoagie (or sub) is made while you wait and the smell is so incredible your stomach will growl! Then you bite into it and grin that... read more

This is a great takeout place for hoagies, submarine sandwiches or by whatever name you know them by. It is the closest thing to Jersey subs that I have found anywhere in VA. My personal favorite is the house special Italian Sub. The combination of freshly cut meats and bread carefully made cannot be beat. You can also get steak,... More

My family LOVES this place. The Thanksgining Dinner sub is amazing but my favorite is the Sandano's Steak. It's loaded with tons of goodies and bursting with flavor (hint-I always ask them to add a little pizza sauce on top. It makes the perfect pizza steak sub EVER!). Also, the owner is always pleasant and I'm happy to support a... More

My fiance and i went here last week. The menu said marinated steak. Not true! They use a frozen puck of beef called a steakeze which is not marinated. The 'fire-roasted' peppers were out of a bag-not fresh. I got a 12' sub and it was not seasoned. I watched the "chef" make it in the stuffy little hole surrounded... More

This is truely the locals favorite spot, heard about it from the folks at Eds Marines. I was in heaven. The Mushroom Cheese Steak was the best I ever eaten. Fresh Sliced Mushrooms then I added LTO, and the house dressing. Simply fantasic. Can't wait to go back.
