What a trip! Danny's is a real find. One of the best local secrets I found. Small, family and pet-friendly tables outside lend themselves to the deliciously messy business involved in devouring one of their famous sandwiches. Your car will thank you and your taste buds will, too!

Have been in Carpinteria multiple times but somehow never stopped over for a sub at Danny's. I hopped in at a late Saturday afternoon and was attended right away. Italian sub turned out to be a really good choice. Lot's of meat and good filling. Tasty and well made. Compliments! It's a small place but definately worth to go to!

Aka: Danny's Deli, Detail, Bait & Tackle! This little shop boasts "world famous tri-tip" and I am here to say they mean business!!!! With impeccable service, my car was lovingly and completely cleaned, hand washed, waxed and buffed to a high shine. While waiting, I chose the tri-tip sandwich with bacon/avacado sans the BBQ sauce and was nearly overwhelmed by... More

The turkey club actually has real turkey carved from a bird. No fake pressed injected stuff. What a nice surprise. The tri tip is delicious. Also the real thing. Both about seven bucks. If you want a really good sandwich done with great ingredients and good bread, this is the place. Take it out or eat at the tables outside... More

Sandwiches where great, staff where great. Kind of a do it all place with a friendly small town vibe. Get your car washed, buy some bait, or get a great sandwich!

My husband and I decided to take advantage of a beautiful February day and drive to the beach in Carpinteria. We had the best barbeque sandwich from Danny's Deli. It doesn't look like much from the front, but don't let that turn you off. My husband had the Teriyaki tri-tip sandwich and I had the barbeque..both delicious. The roll was... More

After wakening in the lovely town of carpinteria, it was great to have such wonderful sandwiches for brunch. Freshly made in full view, all ingredients were excellent and a welcome break from Mexican. Pastrami was like what I can usually only see on tv. And the cheese was also fantastic. Subway is a pale imitation of what somewhere like this... More

Recently moved to Carpinteria and have been poking around at the various places to eat. Danny's Deli is like a Swiss Army knife - it serves many purposes - car wash, bait shop, and best of all a deli. The more seasoned locals, rave about their tri-tip sandwich so I decided to give it a try. It was outstanding...the tri-tip... More
