They make really great sandwiches - custom made to your liking. Very reasonable prices. I go there about once per month and always feel they strive to make my order just right!

This is a great family run local sandwich shop that makes great sandwiches. We have used them several times for catering functions at home. The ingredients are always fresh and the delicious. This is a local favorite and worth stopping in.

This Submarina is different from the other franchises I have tasted. When you walk into the San Marcos location, you can't help but feel that you are at someone's house.
