GOOD AND PRICEY

Me and a buddy got two Italian sub sandwiches, drinks and chips. The sandwiches were very good...The prices weren't. Thirty seven bucks later, we were full and satisfied feeling a lot lighter in the wallet. The place has good sandwiches, but I don't think I would recommend the place for the... read more

By far our favorite sandwich shop in Dana Point. Since day one, the quality has always been excellent and add to that choices galore! Prices are very reasonable, especially for the quality one gets! Try my favorite, Turkey with cheese and cranberries!! Still another party in my mouth. Conveniently located at the Plaza on Blue lantern and PCH

Lived in DP since 1954 but somehow only learned about Tutor and Spunky's about 10-15 years ago! Many missed - visits had I only known of it earlier! Can't begin to describe how excellent their sandwiches are, not to mention the other great menu items. Another bonus is the little deck in the back. Highly recommend this place!

I've been to Tutor & Spunky's ~10 occasions. Having read reviews, I keep hoping that I will have a better experience the next time. But I never do. The menu is extensive, and I've tried several different sandwiches. But every sandwich I've had here has been just ok. The prices would be ok if they were terrific sandwiches.

The best Squaw bread ever! Lots of good sandwiches here made quickly and exactly as you want them. Buy lunch here then take it to the harbor and enjoy the view!

You can't beat the sandwiches at T&S Deli. There is a large selection and they are all great. The prices are reasonable for what you get and you can bet it will be made on fresh bread and and fresh meat. The new bigger Tutor & Spunky's has more seating which is nice. I don't see any changes with the... More

Just picked the place because it was close and I was pleasantly surprised. Ordered the pastrami on rye and it was very good. This place is one of those little locally owned wonder. Just try it.

You have to come here if you want a great deli sandwich! The food is fresh and the portions are large.
