I've been coming here for years and I love the massive size of the sandwiches! I always get the egg salad on a French roll, add cheddar. This place is pretty much always busy. I always call in a to-go order.

They are always busy, but they food is well worth your time. Their small 4in sandwich is a meal in its self.

This place is a little hidden in an industrial area but it's easy to get to. The lunch time is busy but they are fast to serve you. The sandwiches are generous portions and a good value.

Every Friday we try to meet with my Dad's old friend for the best sandwiches. This place is slow on Friday because it is so so good

Seriously they make the best deli sandwiches, only thing I miss is they used to make their own bread on site, still amazing place.

Excellent overall quality. Sandwich meat is piled high, the bread is thick and tasty. Get there early or call-in your order for lunch because there is a line out the door at lunch time. This says more about the quality and value than the service.

Sandwiches are great and staff are very friendly. Usually very crowded but wait time is minimal and you can preorder or take out your food

Best deli in the east county but be prepared to wait for it if you don't call ahead. This place is busy, busy, busy! All the ingredients are super fresh, particularly the bread. The meats are prime quality. The prices are fair. Don't go unless you want a new craving though. I long for sandwiches from this place every time... More
