Best sandwiches

We were revisiting the area, and off course Paseo were on the to-do-list. The waiting time is rewarded with delicious sandwiches.

The Fremont area is my fav area in Seattle by far. The classic Caribbean roast sandwich is very good but also very messy. We waited in line for about 30 minutes to get it but I was happy with it. We then drove over to Gas Works park and had a picnic. It was perfect for a sunny Seattle day.

It is always a must when I am in Seattle, and every time there is a line that stretches out the door. Well worth the wait though!

I don't know ya'll, some of these higher reviews...seriously they have to be wishful thinking or wishing for the past or I don't know what. Please save yourselves the heartache and know that the negative reviews are true. I used to live right down the street from this place for many many years and was a very regular customer. I... More

In a word, NO. The new Paseo makes damn good sandwiches. If I hadn't been a long-time regular customer of the real Paseo, I'd probably write a rave review. But their sandwiches simply don't reach the near-orgasmic heights of the original Paseo. And the experience pales in comparison to the indescribable quirkiness that used to occur there. The sandwich falls... More

We thought it was lost for good. Happily, now rescued by new owners but with the old staff and recipes. The fabulous Cuban sandwich is ours again! And they even take plastic now (welcome to the 21st C.). Well worth trekking up north of Fremont for an unforgettable lunch experience.

On my way there today and discovered that they have closed both locations due to legal troubles. Extremely disappointed that the owner did not only cheat his workers but he also cheated Seattle of it's finest sandwich.

This is authentic Caribbean food- the real deal- generous plates of food - big sandwiches of pork , chicken, fish and even an onion obsession -black beans, rice, tofu - all you would ever expect from a true Caribbean meal.

Paseo's makes great sandwiches, my favorite is the sauteed prawn sandwich. To avoid the long wait, I usually call in my order when I leave my house and it's ready when I get there. It takes a few tries to get though because they are so busy. There aren't many places to sit so I usually walk around the corner... More

Prior to visiting Seattle I watched a show with John Goodman reviewing Americas top 10 sandwiches and Paseo's Caribbean Roast was featured. The show warned to show up early in order to make sure you get a taste of the limited daily supply. My girlfriend and I showed up 40 minutes prior to wanting lunch - it was a good... More
