Mendocino Farms has some of the best sandwiches in downtown L.A. They're pricey, but every time I've ordered from there, the food has been great and very fresh. A good spot to grab lunch, if you don't mind a sandwich that costs a little more.

My first time experiencing this chain. Whilst I'm not a big fan of American fast food. This was great! Loved the choices and everything looked fresh and healthy.

I was in Los Angeles for a business appointment. When we asked our host about where to grab lunch, he directed us to Mendocino Farms, across from their offices. I had the Vegan Bahn Mi sandwich my first day and was so impressed went back a second time. Service is fast, food is fresh and very well made. Go early... More

Got the vegan club, which was delicious. The line can take a while but the food that comes out is worth the wait.

Very yummy and gourmet sandwiches at this place. No matter how picky you are, you will find something you like. A lot of times, when offered the choice, I like to go vegan. I had the tempeh bacon here and it was outstanding. It was offered with my choice of bread and had avocado and greens in it. The tempeh... More

After googling around for a healthier place to eat a quick lunch I came across Mendocino Farms near my hotel. The shop was hard to find as there were no signs (it was actually just below my hotel). I went for the pork belly sandwich (which wasn't the healthiest option but which I had read about as being very good)... More

Hadn't heard of this place before but it was near my hotel and I needed lunch. It was fun and really delicious. I hope they build more of these, I'd come again.

If you live or work downtown this place would be a great option. The sandwiches are large enough that they can cover two meals. I had the "not so fried" Chicken sandwich. It was one of the best sandwiches I've had in awhile. The combination of flavors was incredible! The staff was also really friendly. Completely worth the trip!!

Mendocino Farms is a nice joint on Fifth Street, and near to Hope Street. They serve good quality burgers and sandwiches. Not many people dine in. When we were there, we observed that many customers buy food to go. These are probably the office crowd or people buying for a TV dinner. The only thing to note is that they... More

Great food outstanding service very crowded but well run and well managed. The Pork on the Cibatta was amazing and may rival for one of the best sandwiches ever. A little pricey but not enough to keep me from going back. There is no parking and when you add the $8.00 for parking to pick up to go it makes... More
