Our friends told us not to miss this place while in Monterey. We got our sandwiches and went down to the beach to eat them. But they do have some tables there. The sandwiches are incredable. If you go at lunch time, there will be a line. Don't worry its worth it. Just get in line! They might be a... More

This family owned deli has been a neighborhood and military favorite for eons! Delicious and fresh homemade salads and desserts. Great made to order sandwiches!

We found this on Trip Advisor and are so glad we did. The sandwiches are HUGE (a 1/2 could have easily fed both of us, but my husband refused to share). Absolutely the BEST sandwich I have ever eaten. Love the Dutch Crunch Super Hoagie made perfectly for me. Also like that they cater to military. The owner seemed to... More

Read about it, Tried it, Loved It!!!! I've been going to Monterey for many many years and never knew about this place till I read about it. It is everything they say it is. One of the best sandwiches I've ever had. Be warned though one sandwich is plenty for two people. Or as we did a lunch & dinner.... More

After reading all the reviews we came ready to pack sandwiches for our hike in big sur ! They didn't fail! We ordered a half sandwich for two and it was more than enough! That means - their sandwich servings and the thickness of the sandwich is big! The layers of salami and mortadella was unending. The hubby didn't even... More

Best and biggest sandwiches around! But if you've never had their cheesecake...you're not living!! Prices and quality are both excellent. Sandwiches are usually enough for two meals. So glad we found this neat place, you'll definitely want to stop by if you've never been!

A little out of the way, but well worth the drive up the hill. The sandwiches are delicious and HUGE, as promised. I got a half sandwich, which was more than enough for lunch. Everyone was pleased with their food and would love to go back when we are back in town!

I used to stop here with friends to grab sandwiches for picnic lunches when I was stationed at DLI 20+ years ago. My friend and I stopped on our way out of town to see if was as good as we remembered. It is. Get a half order as it is the size of a regular sandwich other places. Don't... More

I'm in town visiting friends and they took me to this small, hole-in-the-wall deli in Monterey. I ordered a half turkey salami on sourdough and it was FANTASTIC. The owner is so friendly and such a sweetheart. He keeps so any different sodas and chips in stock. Oh, and the desserts are divine! I had a giant slice of chocolate... More

This stalwart grandfather of sandwich places has been around for decades. Wife and I decided to stop in so we could pick up some sandwiches for a whaling trip the following day. They had me at Mortadella. It's my lunch mean kryptonite. We ordered two sandwiches and needed a wheelbarrow to carry them. So we ate one that evening, and... More
