Very good sandwiches

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 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

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

4 sandwiches for $37. Bread was stale and the overall Cole cut quality wasn't very good. Boars head is much better. I wouldn't go back.

One of two great sandwich shops in Dana Point! The only change in 15 years was relocating to a bigger location. You have to get the dressing on your sandwich.

A friend suggested we get sandwiches for a group from Tutor and Spunky's. We arrived and the line was out the door, which is always a good sign. As we waited for our order a customer politely asked the man behind the counter when her call in order would be ready. His response was so rude " he said hey... More

This place was legit. Great food, huge menu and was a great choice. Next to the Blue Lantern Inn which was great. Wish it was in my neighborhood.

An abundance of choices await here, sandwiches made in a jiffy with whatever you want, choice of size, bread & as much or less filling as you want. As we are British we have been overwhelmed with the amount of ingredients in a sandwich, here we could choose a great sandwich to suit our more moderate demands for lunch.

Not a better way to eat lunch any day than at Tutor and Spunky's, but Saturday is special, a cold beer, the large Tutor Special and a million dollar view from the back patio. Tom is a a great guy and his team deliver quality every time.
