I am from Atlanta, GA but visit the bay area often. The reviews I read were all about the great subs. Since I am on a mostly gluten free diet the subs are not my primary interest. The salad menu is a little weak on describing each selection. I and my wife both ordered the Caesar Salad with Chicken added... More

The place is so small, if you blink on route 82, you'll miss it. The best way to describe the place, is the big M nest door. The tasty sandwich and the friendly services are what the place is known for. If you have plan for the park on the weekend, pick up a few sandwiches on your way out.... More

Stopped in on our way through town and specifically went to Mr. Pickles as we had heard good things about other similar shops in other locations. We weren't disappointed as the sandwiches were ginormous and full of fresh ingredients. All 3 of us couldn't finish our respective sandwiches with the sizable bun and all the fixings. The service was friendly... More

Try the Kiss my Angus and The Crusader. Everything is fresh and delish. No complaints except they seem to always be out of sourdough bread.

I was visiting san Mateo and saw this was a good place to get a sandwich. I would say it was pretty good and a very good value for a sandwich and chips it was under $6. I would definitely go back but it is a small place so plan to take your sandwich to the park to eat.

I love this place and have been going to this and other mr. pickle shops for several years. I usually order an Italian sub with ham, salami , cheese, peppers onions, garlic sauce and mustard on a huge sourdough roll. clearly big enough to share and I do try so hard to do that but usually end up eating it...
