Best Sandwich Place Ever

The first time I went there I though it was going to be like any other sandwich place. I WAS WRONG. The simplicity and greatness of the ingredient keeps me going again and again. Since then I have gone almost twice a month, maybe more, just to get my sandwich fix. I have tried every sandwich on the... read more

The food is good here, but I would highly caution anyone to bring earplugs for this place. I have noticed in the past few years that there is a new, popular restaurant design concept. The design idea is to create design a restaurant so that it has a level of ambient noise. With the right amount of ambient noise--you can... More

Saw this place highlighted a few years ago on one of the food or travel channels and decided to give it a try. We had our meal to go and ate it when we got home. I tried the Grilled Cheese (with mozzarella and cheddar) on grain bread, which was pretty good. I didn't think much of their house made... More

Great food, great service! Their sandwiches are amazing! I had the buffalo chicken sandwich and it was to die for! I also got their cotton candy and their flavor of the day was an orange flavor which was delicious.

Thought I'd look for something a little different for lunch and someone recommended I give this place a try. The place proved a little bit of a challenge to find since it sits modestly along a stretch of small shops on the north side of busy Ventura Blvd. Fortunately, on Sundays the street has a lot less traffic than other...

I saw this place on one of the Food channels and thought I'd give it a try. I had the Blackstone sandwich (corned beef, swiss, sauerkraut, 1000 island dressing on seeded rye) and an excellent, yet simple side salad. The tab was $10.36 (I drank water). That's about it, give it a try. I think you like whatever you order.

We saw this place on a food channel review, days prior to leaving from Fl to Cali on our road trip last summer. TCB was immediately added to our list of stops. Happily so, the sandwiches and cotton candy were fantastic! The atmosphere was kind and open, the cotton candy was hand delivered to my outside table with our dogs,... More

Got the Bentley twice which is a filet mignon sandwich with blue cheese. Next time planning to try one of their grilled cheese sandwiches. Order their homemade chips they are a must to... More

The philly grilled cheese was spectacular! The fresh potato chips were also a welcomed surprise! No complaints. I will be back.
