My teenage daughters took me there for the first time about 3 years ago. Ever since, we go about three times a month. Yes sandwiches are good, but the atmosphere close to the Del Mar beach is what makes it great. There are surfer dudes and surfer chicks, but I feel comfortable there too. Grab a sandwhich and eat either... More

OK! It just doesn't get better than this most of the time. Can't beat the prices and the sandwiches at this wonderful crowded eatery. Good food, good beer, and great location. I will be back again and again. Mike

Nice very informal sandwich shop on the main drag in Delmar. Don't look for much selection of brew, but the sandwich was good. They do significant beach crowd here and the atmosphere is friendly and fast. This is not really a sit-down place. Think sub shop. There's parking in the back.

One of the best sandwich joints I ever ate ate. The sandwiches are a very good size, and quite reasonable especially considering this is in Del Mar, right off the beach. All ingredients are super fresh. Don't know where they get their bread from, but delish. They have a very nice patio area to eat your sandwich. The place is... More

taste great, all the locals go there, lunch rush is crazy but they are good... the only really affordable place in Del Mar for sure, but superior to the chain subs.

I have been going to Board & Brew since High School (10+yrs). Even after moving away from San Diego, Its still one of the first places I visit when I am back in town. I recommend to order your sandwich ahead (call in) especially if you are going around lunch time (mon-fri) or on the weekends. It can get very... More

This is the BEST sandwich place on either coast and anywhere in between!! I challenge anyone to recommend a better offering on bread... Small sign so you need to look on the coastal side of the PCH. Worth it! This will change your life!!!!

Nice variety of very filling sandwiches and subs. Very fresh and the sauce on the sandwiches is amazing. Limited seating, but not far from a park on 15th street overlooking the ocean. There was a line to order, but it moved quickly and the wait for our food was short. There was a separate line for those who had called... More

After traveling for several weeks we were craving for a light lunch - anything not fried. We stopped at Del Mar, looked at several restaurants' menus and decided this nondescript deli will do. When the place was full of locals we knew we were onto something good. All 3 of us had something different, bread was fresh, sandwich piled high... More
