Great sandwich

Went there on our way to santa clause beach. The sandwich was fresh and very reasonable. Loved the Italian salami and provolone on white.

I used to live in Santa Barbara and every time I go back and visit, this is the first food stop I make. The sandwiches are amazing, the number 4 is my fave and the owner is super cool, friendly and always remembers you. If you like sandwiches, you should definitely check this place out.

It's a great sandwhich place. But if you don't want sandwhiches, go elsewhere.
