Great breakfast sandwiches with choice of egg, cheese and meat. We also ordered the breakfast burrito but was unable to eat both. Very large!

Best sandwich I have ever tried. The owners are very friendly and nice too. The sandwiches are very filling and gourmet. Randy has been an owner and a gourmet chef for his 5 star restaurant in Santa Cruz and now he is the best sandwich maker in town. Love it and I visit this place every year with my family!!... More

Randy's Sandwich Shop is not easy to find for a tourist, but I managed. It is a breakfast and lunchtime only, and cash only little family business. Sandwiches are excellent. I had a Reuben for lunch and liked it so much that I bought another cold cut sandwich to save for later.

Randy's is a hole-in-the-wall, with no atmosphere worth mentioning. You stand in line, order a sandwich, pay and go. What makes it special is the size of the sandwich, it's very good quality and the consistently low cost. Call them hoagies, grinders, subs or whatever. And if you think you've gone to the right place but can't find them, you're... More

If you want a great sandwich, local or tourist, find Randy's and enjoy. No seating, so it is all take out or there is a bench across the street. If they don't have it on the menu, they will try to make it for you. Real good.

Mmmmmm, quick turn around and packed full of delicious meat and cheese. The bread was a sesame hoagie that was delicious. CASH only, but it's soooo cheap! How can they survive? Thank you, Randy's for being awesome!

Wow is the word! Little dive but awesome sandwich's. Go in and order and before we finished paying they were ready. No seating in this 'tiny' little place but there was a picnic table across the street or adventure to your favorite place. We sat at picnic table and WOW cars were flying in and out of this place. We... More

I'm a huge sandwich fan. This is the place to go eat when you are really hungry! I visit the are about 4 or 5 times a year to see my old dad, and I eat there every time. Big menu and very tasty and fresh ingredients! Note: no indoor seating

Randy's has the best sandwiches (and other items) in the area, and it is a short walk from the Stage Coach Lodge. Check if Randy's is open before you walk there, and bring cash because he doesn't take credit/debit cards.
