As advertised

Great sandwiches. Good Ballast Point beer in bottle. We had a chicken wrap and the spicy beef sandwich. The beef sandwich was a hot dip - best one I've had in years

I arrived with party of 5 during busy lunch hour. My salad was ok-I ordered the Green salad which arrived with croutons, cukes, egg, tomato and lettuce. I am thankful that I ordered avocado. I would have liked extra dressing but was unable to move as I was wedged in between the wall and a number of other patrons-very cramped.... More

This place has amazing, quick sandwiches. I really enjoy either the turkado or baja beef. Just make sure you get the sauce on the side, it's truly amazing.

I recommend this place for a quick lunch, fresh sandwiches, great concept sometimes the place gets really busy and that is a good sign but worth the wait,!

They have the best sandwiches around! Try the veggie supreme - to die for! But don't expect ambiance.

Really yummy and fresh sandwiches! Ate here several times for lunch during a short vacation to Del Mar. Gets really busy, but the sandwiches are worth it. Don't forget to request "the sauce" on the side.

Nice little place in the heart of Del Mar. We caught it right after we got off of the plane and there was a bit of a line. While we were somewhat cranky, the food more than made up for it. Nice relaxed setting.

My 13 year old had heard about this place from a friend and was begging to go. It was packed but service was fast and we did manage to grab a table at the patio in the back. The menu is limited but they do what they offer exceptionally well. I had the pastrami and my son had the turkey... More

Heard lots of great things about this sandwich place so we opted to try it out. It's in a great location, super close to the beach. Ideally a sandwich and then a walk to the beach to savor it would be excellent! I was on a time constraint though so I had to get mine to-go. I ordered a chicken... More

Very good food Super busy and of course parking sucks but it was worth it! Definitely go back. Perfect pickup on the way to the beach.
