If you are out and about and do not want to go to nasty subway and want a real mans sandwich, go here... These guys are seriously the best in the area. Take it to go and love every bite of it. You will love it .

We stopped by here on holiday having read reviews. We weren't disappointed. Friendly service, a great selection of huge sandwiches (a half feeds two!) and a really nice Oreo chocolate cake portion that fed four! Worth a visit for sure.

I was researching places to eat and happened upon reviews for Compagnos. My husband plugged in the directions. Glad we did because it's tucked away in a residential area. Please don't let the looks of it outside keep you from going in. It's a very small place but oh my gosh!!! The sandwiches are incredible! They have a huge selection... More

Incredible sandwiches! I had a pastrami reuben that had very good pastrami and quality fiixins. Large portions the sandwich was more than I could finish. Didn't have desert but they all looked incredible.

I was doing some research on food places before this anniversary trip with my husband, and came across this little gem. I was thinking we would grab some sandwiches and then head down 17-Mile Drive for a picnic, but we ended up meeting friends who were in town for their anniversary too, and we found a little spot for a...

What other 4s and 5s said … but just driving by, I would never stop; just stepping in …… I wouldn't, at first, call $12.50 for a full sandwich cheap, but then this is like 2 or 3 full sandwiches elsewhere. Excellent food and lots of it! And the kicker is the owner -- he should do stand-up in some... More

This is a quality and "old fashioned" customer service, quality of food and ambiance fun - sandwich shop. Kids love the fresh ingredients, I love the creative types of sandwiches and the shop is also ideal for taking sandwiches to a company event or picnic. The sandwiches are huge!! We cut one sandwich into four pieces and it's great for... More

I have lived/visited Monterey on and off for the past 12 years and have always made Compagno's part of my trip. The quality for the price cannot be beat, especially in the Monterey peninsula. The sandwiches are made for you and include generous portions of fresh meet, bread and toppings. There is a shockingly wide variety of drinks, as well.... More

I made a pilgrimage to this store I frequented as a student more than 35 years ago, just to see if the current reality could live up to my memories. It most certainly did! The sandwiches are as large and delicious as I remember, and the small store offers one of the most interesting selection of soft drinks and beer... More
