This place sure is sub-standard! Their crap is really expensive and doesn't even taste that good! Maybe they should focus on better ingredients and not hiring inmates to cook it...

If you're looking for a unique burger that you won't typically find in Sierra Vista, this is the place. I've had the 1/3# bacon brisket cheeseburger twice now, and was very satisfied each time. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating.

Read in the newspaper that have a new name and changed don't do subs anymore. I think they have hot dogs, cheese steaks and other items, but haven't checked out the new place yet.

My husband and I went in here on an afternoon around 3 for a late lunch. We waited at the counter for about 5 min for someone to emerge from the back and ordered our sandwiches and some drinks. Honestly about 20 minutes later, the lone sandwich maker came out to tell me they were out of tuna (I had... More

Walked in and ordered a sandwich. First of all, the employee I encountered dressed very causally and looked unprofessional. Her daughter was in the back and after I placed my order, I realized that the employee was having her daughter make my sandwich WITHOUT GLOVES. reluctantly I took the sandwich because I was in a hurry. I've come in many... More

The food was excellent, but the restaurant itself was extremely cold and the T.V. was so loud and playing a religious program, we couldn't hear ourselves think, let alone talk to each other. The price was about average for a sub shop, but when we figured it out, we had been overcharged by about $2.00. I will say the onion... More

Looking for a change from the norm- walked in and the guy taking my order had an open sore on his wrist, uncovered about the size of a half dollar. I watched as he started making my sub- bare handed. Had enough and walked out. Should have known because the other eateries on the row were packed. This place was... More

I'm all about supporting the local joints instead of the big chains any day as long add they're good. Sub Standards delivers each time. Great sandwiches at a fair price. Stop in and try a steak and cheese or the Gyro. Good stuff.

I’ve been to Sub-Standards twice, and both times came away unimpressed. The first time, I went for the steak sandwich with fries, and it was passable, but nothing special. The sandwiches are a decent size, but you’re also paying a good bit more for the sandwiches here than you would elsewhere. Better than Subway, but I’d honestly rather get a... More

We should have known by the lack of traffic in the store and the parking lot, we were the only ones, that this place was not going to be very good. Gyro meat tasted old and overcooked, the steak sandwich was ok. Baklava also just ok. Greek salad was the highlight, but I asked for no onions and both were... More
