Huge variety of sandwiches, wide choice of breads, cheeses, condiments, etc. Yummy side salads and delicious cakes! If you are STARVING get a whole sandwich, but most folks can only eat half at once. If you go at lunch time during the week... More

30 years ago we would walk out of the back gate of the base and get a sandwich here. I love the meatball sub! In the last 30 years, I have returned every time I am in Monterey. Same great sub! My family got different sandwiches are were pleased with the flavor and the quantity. Incredible cakes and desserts, too.... More

Came here on a friend's recommendation, and I was glad I did. The owner and staff were so friendly and they have great pro military decorations. The sandwich was MASSIVE and tasty. Huge drink selection too.

Excellent sandwiches, salads, wine and beer selection! Pick up snacks or grab a full lunch while you trek down the 17-mile Drive! The service is good, they're pretty quick even during busy summer months! Excellent selection of eats and drinks for all budgets!

We have been going to Compagno's since 1997 when we were stationed in the military at DLI. It has always been awesome. The cake slices are insane! Sandwiches are fresh and the sourdough is amazing. The owner always gave the military guys a break. I swear there was no way he was charging me for all of the food I... More
