Was pleased to try this place. The staff was very friendly and made lots of suggestions. Settled on the Longboard (chicken breast and Italian pesto) and it was great. Will certainly return.

totally tasty but nothing i'm going to shout about. my pastrami sub was really good and everything was fresh. the options are plentiful. the line does not move too quickly [on a saturday afternoon]. the outdoor seating under the trees in the courtyard area quite...delightful. easy to park as lot is large. it was a very nice sandwich sorta on-the-fly. refer back to slow moving line. i had never been here before and did not know how the place operated and until i actually got to the register i was not even sure of all my options. there is no real organization to tell you how the place works. perhaps it might be intuitive to the college crowd... whatever. the price point for the size sub is fabulous. i will say that; so i may try it again. nothing i simply must go back to though...More

Fresh bread, make your own sandwich, quick service and a clean place. Lots of parking during your lunch hour, places to sit inside and outside and it won't break the bank. One of my fav places to eat lunch, never get tired of Konas!

A friendly place with lots of options for a decent sub-type sandwich with bags of chips and the standard self-serve drink dispenser. Food is reasonable, good sized portions, quick, seems fresh and tasty, so sometimes stop here with the grandkids when we're in a hurry...and not looking for ethnic food, or when we're off to the park and need a sandwich to go. So overall positive, not anything remarkable. Good value and stop here a few times a year.More

Customer service, 5 star. We were greeted with a smile and they made the most amazing HUGE, delicious sandwiches. We will be back when we visit SLO again! Thanks!

I have loved Kona's ever since they first started serving their freshly sliced lunch meat on hand cut bread rolls. They are efficient and generous on the toppings.

Ok I am from Itally and we don't use to have so big and full sandwiches but oh, this one was really good.. I tried many paninis in California but this one was really the best. I also appreciated the fact that one can build...his own salad and a little suggestion.. try the cookies.. you won't be upset! PS the staff was really helpful and friendly! thumb upMore

A friend and I stopped at Kona's for lunch on Sunday. We both ordered the pastrami 6" sandwich. Overall, I thought it was a good sandwich but it seemed to me that the ratio of meat-to-bread was off the mark. One or two more slices...of pastrami would have made it a great sandwich.More
