Went with a friend from Monterey who has raved about the sandwiches and staff. It didn't disappoint. Funky place with rich military roots, really busy at lunchtime. Amazing sandwiches! And the proprietor (?) introduces himself to everyone and then you see the regular clientele walk in and be recognized by name! How rare is that?

This sandwich shop is so popular you should call your order in so you do not have to wait. However if you must wait there are lots of interesting deli products to examine while you wait. The cakes look divine! Have not tasted them yet because the sandwiches are so huge.

Through Tripadvisor, we were looking for a good sandwich place for the small hunger.... What we got (freshly made humungous sandwiches) exeeded all our expectations. The owner greeted us with a handshake and was so kind, that we felt like family. After our trip to the Aquarium, we returned there to get another sandwich for the road... This time...even bigger...

We picked up 2 sandwiches for 3 of us - based on other TA reviews - and that was plenty! They're generous servings. We had 1 veggie and 1 cheese and avocado - both were great. We also picked up drinks and chips. Headed to Asilomar for a picnic. Worked perfectly. Based on reviews, we also got a slice of... More

My co-worker introduced me to this place and it's amazing. The best sandwiches in town are here. It's worth the bucks you spend for a huge sandwich. Can't wait to go back again looking forward to my next stop.

Yes. Not only are their sandwiches huge, they are good! There are so many to choose from, too. Don't forget their humongous cakes. OMG! Yum! Staff & the owner greets everyone with such a welcoming attitude. I love coming here. I make a point to visit here everytime I'm in town.

We stopped here on our way to the 17 mile drive. It's a small hidden gem of a sandwich shop. Many locals stopping in to get food too. The sandwiches were huge and were great. This place is a true deli and had great looking cakes but I didn't try them, the sandwiches were enough. This place is a must... More

This is real trip down nostalgia lane for me, as I first started coming here 50 years ago, when the current owners father, Buster Compagno, was the proprietor. I was just a youngster and he and his crew, I remember Mercedes in particular, were like family to everyone on Huckleberry Hill, i.e. from Forest Ave. down to Pine Street and... More

The menu is huge, and the sandwiches are great! They, too, are huge! Get a half if you are by yourself, although, you could take it home and save some for later. The peanut butter chocolate cake is to die for-I can't stop in without picking some up!
