Amazing. Delicious. Worth the wait. This place always has a line out the door and that is totally justified due to the delicious sandwiches they have. The garlic sauce is the secret ingredient that makes everything irresistible. Really amazing. And, a great down home atmosphere- tons of Giants stuff on the walls. The workers are so friendly and know many... More

I lived in Belmont with my husband in 1979...Lorenzo's was a little hole in the wall back then...we walked down from our house to the shop and got the best sandwich we have ever had...Love!!!! the garlic sauce and the Dutch crumb bread! Delicious! We ate there once a week from the first bite.

I'm conflicted because the more people that know about this little gem of a sandwich shop, the more crowded it will be! But it is, and has been for years, the best place for really fresh, made-to-order sandwiches. Note the hours as they aren't open all day. And enjoy the SF Giants photos while you wait. the staff is always... More

Amazing fresh sandwiches made to perfection. Customized to you taste with or without the condiments. Lorenzo's is a family owned business with years of experience and top customer care.

Lorenzo's makes good sandwiches. It's all they do. They don't to anything else and I love them for it. The sandwiches aren't the 10 pound monsters you'll get at the new breed places like Mr. Pickles, but thank god. I don't need a sandwich that feels like I should send it to Africa so that it could feed a village.... More

My three started going to Lorenzo' sandwich shop during their high school years. Two of my son's worked there! We still go there for sandwiches! Dave & Martha are very friendly & know some of my family! We love their sandwiches, especially the garlic salt! The shop is closed on Sunday & Monday! Cash only!

I always do takeout. The sandwich shop is in a very small space. I have never been disappointed. I like the turkey with avacodo on a Dutch roll the best.
