“Awesome sandwiches!”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

We just happened to going by and were hungry and my wife found it in a search with tons of good reviews. We decided to stop and we are glad we did. Everyone enjoyed their sandwiches thoroughly. The place is tiny and has a line constantly and now we understand why. Excellent!

“BEST submarine sandwhiches in San Francisco”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

They are at the West Portal Muni rail stop and they is ALWAYS a line from am to pm. Line moves
very fast and the subs are excellent. I always have the Pastrami and it is always EXCELLENT. The
owner could be the brother from the soup Nazi on Seinfield.Has the same personality and NEVER
smiles. But he runs a tight ship. Shop is extra clean. Easy to get to by rail.

“Sub sandwich the real McCoy”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

It is like being in a real submarine with bay area sport memrobilia on the walls, it is tiny spot, but the sandwiches that this tiny kitchen create are legendary !
They offer 3 sizes of sandwiches, mini, center, sub depends on how hungry you are.
After you pick the type of sandwich you'd like, they pack it generously and move I'd to the oven for few minutes to "fuse" all the ingridiants together into a flakey, juicy, yummy sub sandwich, more like a Torpedo! Oozing with flavours .
You will find it convenient location because it is right by the muni tunnel in the West Portal .

“Great subs but geting a bit pricey”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

This little hole in the wall does a great business and has been around forever. We have eaten here dozens of times and they hit the mark every time. My only issue lately is I think they have cut back on the amount of meat they are putting in their subs. This last time I get the pastrami and it was a bit light on the meat. It seems the prices are creeping up as well. Very tasty but not the usual. Heck it may have been an off day for them but usually it is top notch.
