“Slow, Slower, Slowest”
Reviewed November 29, 2009

Waited 10-15 minutes to make 2 sandwiches for take out? Please I understand the Hawaiian spirit of taking it slow and easy but this was a bit much. So after the the wait the sandwiches were kinda blah but it was cheap, $20 total for 2. I don't understand the raves. A bit jaded perhaps being from a large East Coast city where local deli's are on every street corner.

“I pass all the others eateries to eat at 808 deli”
Reviewed November 15, 2009

It's a sandwich deli that sets the gold standard for all delis. These guys (brothers) create art with two slices of bread - edible art. I can get a grocery store sandwich wrapped in plastic for less $, but I won't remember the taste the next day, like a sandwich from the 808 deli. After a hard day at the beach, you should eyes light up when I mention stopping at 808 deli. My two favorites (so far) at the Chicken Pesto and the Chicago Style Hot Dog, a basket with potato chips and a couple of dill gherkins for under $8. Plus, they have homemade Gelato, to die for. Open for breakfast and lunch, until 5 pm. I mostly see working folks here, who don't seem to mind the lack of atmosphere.

“Don't get the raves”
Reviewed November 15, 2009

There are way better sandwich delis and home and I could easily make a much better sanwich. If you take the sanwich anywhere it will be all soggy unless you eat it right away. I found the sanwiches completely unremarkable.

The place is not bad or anything, but the services is slow and the girl taking the orders was not too with it. If you need a sandwich it's ok but I would not suggest a special trip here.

“Italian sandwich is awesome”
Reviewed November 2, 2009

We were pleasantly surprised at how awesome the sandwiches were. With chips, we spit one for two of us - big eaters would want a piece of fruit but really tasty.
