The bread is fresh, and the line is long

The line is often ling, so hot tip: Call in your order. The bread is always so soft, yet has a good chew to it. Your sandwich comes with a pickle, and they have just about any meat or cheese you would want. Combo deal comes with chips and a drink, but I always get their potato salad, it's not... read more

Antonellis is a staple in east county. I don't eat here quite as much as I'd like but they do make an amazing sandwich. With a large selection of breads and different kinds of sandwiches you really can't go wrong. The wait time can get a bit lengthy, especially during the lunch hour so plan accordingly if you're stopping by... More

Really good food. Parking lot is really small. Sandwiches are always high quality. Staff runs wide open all lunch time. Indoor and outdoor seating. Come hungry because some of these sandwiches are large.

These sandwiches are more than ample for the average eater. The establisnment is rather small, but the quality of the food easily out weighs that minor inconvenience.

This place is so good. So very, very good. Everything is fresh, tasty, and they give you great value for your money. If you're planning on going around lunch time, the locals know and frequent this deli a lot, so call ahead and order from their online menu - it will save you a lot of time, even if you... More

Huge sandwiches and worth the wait. Big election and tons of choices...hot or cold. Try the chicken salad or sourdough or their tuna melt.

My wife and I were visiting the San Diego area and were catching a movie in the El Cajon area. We saw this place on TripAdvisor and decided to grab lunch here. It is just north of the Parkway Plaza Mall on Magnolia Avenue however, it is in an industrial area and is not easy to see at first as... More

I tried this place for lunch today and must say that I wasn't disappointed! My sandwich (#11) was huge and super good! Even at almost 2:00 the place was really busy! The only downside is that you've got to allow for them to make your order. Mine took almost 20 minutes but the wIt was worth it!!
