“Worth the wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

Everyone that has been to Bo de B will tell you that there is a long wait. And it is true. Waited over an hour in line for this gorgeous sandwich and I don't regret a second of it. The reason for the wait is that they cook your meat at the moment you order it, so it is fresh, fresh, fresh. I got the beef sandwich with all the toppings plus 2 sauces- best 3.80 Euro I've ever spent. Although the beef was delicious it was in large pieces, not slices which made for a huge mouthful everytime. Friends got the chicken and said it was divine. If you're feeling adventurous opt for the tuna or smoked salmon! Once you get the sandwich walk across the street and lay in the grass by the harbor, followed by a snooze and you will feel like a million bucks!

“cannot fault it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

Yes, it´s plauged with long queues.. but it moves quickly and it´s worth it for undoubtedly, the-best-sandwich-in-town.

The staff are so friendly, especially towards tourists - they always smile and encourage you to practice your spanish.

The salads (if you eat in) are amazing, huge and so tasty.

The sandwiches are great, huge and so tasty - and so cheap.

Cannot fault this place. Great service, Great staff. Great food.

*Just note, this is a sandwich bar - not a "restaurant" as such.

“Good but prepare to wait!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

We saw this place a few times walking by, and there was always a line. Trip Adivsor had great reviews, so we decided to get a ToGo order and take it to the beach. Well it didn't open until 1pm, and we were first in line outside, with about 20 behind us. Once they opened, the dine in customers behind us went on inside, and got to order before us, even though we were first in line :( Disappointed. So waited another 15 min til they took the ToGo orders, but then it went quick. I will say that what you get for the money is a bargain and very tasty. Just don't go here if you are in a rush.

“So worth waiting the line”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

we were a little hungry when we walked passed this establishment with a guided tour.
We were wondering why so many people were waiting the line for a sandwish bar, but after returning and having one ourselves, we understood them completely.
The sandwishes are heavenly tasty, a mix of good flavours and you can choose anything you want.
Recommend for sure for a surprisingly yummy quick bite.

“awesome sandies but the wait is ridiculous!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

great sandwich shop, lots of ingredients and for cheap!! The line is stupid though... up to an hour wait sometimes for a €5 sandwich. If you are patient, all the power to you, but if like me you wanna eat when you wanna eat then you might have to sacrifice and head elsewhere. If you do, on the rare occasion, get to sit inside, be sure to order one of their massive salads. They are delicious and again great for the value. It is cramped in there, but not horrible.

Overall, great sandwiches and salads, but they need to figure out a way to cut down on the wait! At least there is a market right next door you can buy some beers at and turn the line into a party!
