Mediocre sandwich. Didn't have any interesting sauces which is why you buy a sandwich instead of making your own. Toasted my sandwich with the tomato and lettuce in it, ew! Plus it wasn't crunchy, must have been put in the microwave.

We ate here while staying in Montara while on our family vacation. They have a very good variety of sandwiches and other dishes. I had a boring old turkey and bacon sandwich, which was anything but boring, Yum, and my son in law had a sandwich with peanut butter, meat and cheese and all the trimmings and was really good...

We stopped along the way to try out their sandwiches ! Big huge ones too ! They've got a variety of delicious ones that I want to come back for. French fries were huge and we shared that between the 4 of us. Then we had the pastrami sandwich and the west coast sandwich. They didn't scrimp on the pastrami... More

Sandwiches at Gherkin's are HUGE. I think one could feed a family of four. The possible combinations are dazzling in their variety and all ingredients are first class. Eat in or take it to the beach across the street.

My wife and I found this place on our drive up the coast. We ordered two sandwiches. They were quite huge. The fish sandwich was good and her turkey was excellent. The hush puppies came piping hot out of the deep fryer.

Have had a number of their salads. Always fresh and good combinations at a great price. Husband and sons love their burgers.

Great stop-off point to refuel or visit in the early evening for a filling burger, which come in many varieties for meat-eaters and vegetarians. The staff were friendly and approachable. You can expect to wait 5-10 minutes for your order to be completed. Watch the dip when driving into their car park though!

Gherkins makes the best sandwiches some of our favorites are the Nikko and the West Coaster. Be careful though--the sandwiches are huge, my husband and I share one and quite often make two meals out of one sandwich. Before you order your sandwich with everything be sure to reads what "everything" is it includes far more than the traditional items.... More
