I have visited Randy's many times when in Monterey--right down 10th Street from the Naval Postgraduate School. Rather than judge the place by the humble interior, stand outside for a few minutes and watch all the number of locals go in and out, and that will tell you all you need to know. Randy and his partner make fantastic sandwiches... More

My wife and I had lunch consisting of the Egg Salad and Tuna Salad sandwiches. Both were good and VERY large in size.....more than enough for two lunches. A real bargain at $5.00 each. There is no seating in side so strictly a take out restaurant.

This is what we call a "whole in the wall" back east. About 4-5 men can fit inside. The line ended up on reaching the sidewalk. All sandwiches are $6 or less. I think this and the bread are probably reasons why this place has so many rave reviews on other rating sites. My biggest issue with this spot is... More

Sandwiches are awesome and cheap. Friendly service every time I go in. It is a cash only and the hours are quick.

Great breakfast sandwiches with choice of egg, cheese and meat. We also ordered the breakfast burrito but was unable to eat both. Very large!

Best sandwich I have ever tried. The owners are very friendly and nice too. The sandwiches are very filling and gourmet. Randy has been an owner and a gourmet chef for his 5 star restaurant in Santa Cruz and now he is the best sandwich maker in town. Love it and I visit this place every year with my family!!... More

Randy's Sandwich Shop is not easy to find for a tourist, but I managed. It is a breakfast and lunchtime only, and cash only little family business. Sandwiches are excellent. I had a Reuben for lunch and liked it so much that I bought another cold cut sandwich to save for later.

Randy's is a hole-in-the-wall, with no atmosphere worth mentioning. You stand in line, order a sandwich, pay and go. What makes it special is the size of the sandwich, it's very good quality and the consistently low cost. Call them hoagies, grinders, subs or whatever. And if you think you've gone to the right place but can't find them, you're... More

If you want a great sandwich, local or tourist, find Randy's and enjoy. No seating, so it is all take out or there is a bench across the street. If they don't have it on the menu, they will try to make it for you. Real good.
