My husband and I have ordered sandwiches here since 1972 when he was a grad student at Stanford. We hadn't been there in at least one year when we decided to go today for lunch. At lunchtime, the wait for you to order can be...More

This store has been in Town and Shopping Center forever. It is a little hard to find because it is in the corner. Excellent place for a simple lunch.

The food was excellent, but the lines are very long. If you're in Palo Alto I would definitely stop in.

This place has been open for decades. The sandwich recipe hasn't really changed. It turns out that's a good thing. If you're in a hurry, they have ready-made sandwiches (in baskets) that are excellent, as long as you don't mind (delicious) mayo-spread. Pro-tip: get there...More

This place has been in Palo Alto for years and years, so it's a sandwich icon! However their sandwiches are definitely not my favorite. I typically get turkey, and the meat is flavorless, like boiled, watery, cheap meat flavorless. Their cheese selection is vast, and...More
