Good,honest sandwich

Great sandwiches, but make sure Buster washes his hands before he makes yours! Not in the center of tourist happenings, but worth the find.

This is THE place to go on the Monterey Peninsula for sandwiches. They have hot as well as cold and a full selection of drinks & beer. It is located a block from the entrance to the Defense Language Institute, so you'll see armed forces influences pinned to the ceiling; armed forces names for the sandwiches. You can order a...

The sandwich shop is situated in a neighborhood and if you aren't careful you'll miss it. But don't miss it! Best sandwiches in the Monterey area. Wonderful welcoming owner and lots of yummy unusual chips and sides to choose from.

we came here based on a recommendation from a local. my husband and I shared a turkey, bacon, avocado sandwich. it tasted fine, it wasn't mind blowing but it was good. however, a half an hour later we both had upset stomach issue. it just didn't sit well. if it wasn't for that I would give this a 4/5 stars.

Took the family here in search of some deli sandwiches. What we got was nothing short of greatness. Located away from the commercial side of the Monterey peninsula this place is a must eat of sandwich aficionados. There is something for everyone from the deli counter and there is a wide selection of soda and beer choices from the store.... More

First off, go here. Second, Bennett is very welcoming and friendly, and because I told him it was my favorite place to eat when I lived in Monterey 14 years ago, he gave us a free slice of delicious berry cheesecake. It was like talking to an old friend. Third, their sandwiches are just that wonderful. Order a sammie and... More

Get a HALF..unless you can eat an IMMENSE sandwich. They load it with A LOT of meat and there is a good variety of bread. Prices are about $8.99 for a half and $10.00 for a large. You can beat these prices ANYWHERE for the quality of the meats and the amount. It's not open late so plan for lunch.... More
