“My Favorite Cold Cut Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

This tiny sandwich shop on El Camino delivers with consistency every time. I'm not able to provide insight on very much of the menu. But if "The Realness" is any indication of the rest of their food, you will not be disappointed. "The Realness" is turkey, ham, and roastbeef. And, it is topped with some condiments, bacon, and avocado. The italian bread is always perfect. It goes very nicely with their bottled root beer. Seriously, it is easily 1 of my top 5 favorite sandwiches. And, I can't think of any better cold cut sandwich.

In the middle of the lunch rush, parking can be tricky. And, they only have about 10 small tables including the 3 or 4 outside. But, it is worth it. Also, be advised that the price is above average for lunch. The sandwich and drink run about $12.

One more plus is definitely their customer service. They are always friendly, and make the effort to find you when your food is ready, even delivering it to you outside on the patio.

“Gourmet Sandwiches and Great Personal Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2008

The Ace of Sandwiches is one of our favorite places for grabbing lunch and friends we've referred to it always have been happy to discover it.

The three things that make them stand out are quality ingredients, an vast, innovative menu and really great customer service.

They have a tremendous range of sandwiches, ranging from the very simple and traditional to really tasty, multi-ingredient creations on sliced, roll, wrap or grilled panini. The quality of the meats, veggies, sauces and breads is noticeable.

Re atmosphere and service, Mario and his team treat everyone warmly and if you come with any frequency, they make the extra effort to remember preferences. Just a really great place for sandwiches if you're visiting Palo Alto or live in the area.
