Been here twice in the last week. The gluten free sub rolls are fantastic. Baked fresh daily. Also love their potato salad. Staff is fast, efficient and gluten safety knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

It's hard to imagine that subs can truly be different across restaurants, but these subs are the best. It's the bread, the dressing, and the cheese. They have the perfect recipe for authentic Italian subs. It's a really inexpensive lunch too. Great soups, potato salad too, and they're fast and efficient. If you're gluten free, their bread is actually really... More

The food is very authentic EXCEPT the "Hot Italian Sausage Sub" is, in fact, NOT hot Italian sausage but rather is heated up sweet Italian sausage! Ha-ha...still so good that they are forgiven.

Typical local sandwich spot but so untypically high quality! Great ingredients and bread make for unforgettable sandwiches...don't miss Meconi's!

I've lived here for 16 years, and have tried this local chain half a dozen times. I've never had a sandwich that had any flavor and I've tried several. If you want a sub at this quality, save your money and go to Subway or the local Texaco.

This is one of the best sub shops in the region. The bread they use is outstanding. We have ordered them for parties at work. They are the go to sub shop.

All the Meconi's in the Oly area are great. The one by the airport gets pretty crowded during lunch time with all the state workers coming in. However, it is worth the wait. Sandwiches here are better than any other sub shops around. The soups are fantastic! The people here are fantastic, we go there frequently.

We stopped, hoping for pizza, but alas, were disappointed. However, in retrospect, it DOES say 'Subs" on the sign. Having spent some time in NJ/Manhattan, I know what a good sub is like. It's NOT what they serve at Subway. Meconi's does a reasonable job of it, considering this is the West Coast. Nowhere on the Left Coast will you... More

I had a Italian sub. My wife had Egg salad. Both were huge. And tasted great. Service was so fast. Good job staff!
