Never a disappointment at Meconis. This is Thurston County's best sandwich shop, as voted in the local newspaper, The Olympian. There is a reason. The sandwiches are each made fresh on fresh bread made specifically for Meconis. The meats are fresh, salads large and hearty. They have no problem with special orders and staff are most always friendly and chatty.... More

First off their bread is so ridiculously yummy. I normally get the turkey sandwich with light lettuce. Everything about the sandwich is delicious. Other reviewers are right that it gets very busy around lunchtime but you can always call in your order. This place is a millions times better then Subway or Quiznos.

Avoid the State workers, don't go during the 12-1:30pm Monday- Friday. Good sandwiches & soup. Atmosphere is average.

I was introduced to Meconi's sub sandwiches in 1989, and became an immediate fan. You see, once you've had real East Coast submarine sandwiches, everything else is a pale imitation. One amazing quality of the Meconi's sub shops is that they have maintained the excellent quality and superb service throughout the more than 25 years they've been in business! Their... More

Very busy at lunch time but safe since it is a favorite of local law enforcement. The food was very good.

Much better than a subway sandwich. Long lines (which is a good sign), but worth the wait. The Philly cheese sandwich was very tasty.

Such fresh meats and cheeses as well as friendly staff makes Meconi's my favorite sub sandwich shop. Try the Philly Steak Cheese! It contains mushrooms and is very meaty.

I have been to the Tumwater and Lacey locations and have never once been disappointed! I also do NOT go in while in a hurry. These places are always busy and they do not put out a lesser sandwich when slammed. They now offer au jus for those who like to dip their sammies! OH YA!!! Value is amazing here!... More

Casual, quick, sandwich place. Meconi's has been around forever and there's a reason. The sandwiches are great. Not only are they good, but they are an excellent value. I always get either a 1/2 of an "Italian" or a 1/2 of an"meatball". I can't eat a whole one (or if I do I regret it because it's too much).

First all 3 locations are great. I usually hit Tumwater on Wednesday's for lunch. Early or late for lunch they are still consistantly great. I have been doing Meconis for ever it seams and I can not remember being disappointed. Sometimes they are very busy and it takes some time for your order but the quality does not suffer in... More
