This is a quality and "old fashioned" customer service, quality of food and ambiance fun - sandwich shop. Kids love the fresh ingredients, I love the creative types of sandwiches and the shop is also ideal for taking sandwiches to a company event or picnic. The sandwiches are huge!! We cut one sandwich into four pieces and it's great for... More

I have lived/visited Monterey on and off for the past 12 years and have always made Compagno's part of my trip. The quality for the price cannot be beat, especially in the Monterey peninsula. The sandwiches are made for you and include generous portions of fresh meet, bread and toppings. There is a shockingly wide variety of drinks, as well.... More

I made a pilgrimage to this store I frequented as a student more than 35 years ago, just to see if the current reality could live up to my memories. It most certainly did! The sandwiches are as large and delicious as I remember, and the small store offers one of the most interesting selection of soft drinks and beer... More

This is what it should be. The sandwiches are excellent and huge. And, the prices are more than reasonable. To top it off, the owner and staff are most friendly. All in all it is hard to beat this place if you want a sandwich.

Good to eat any sandwich or just eat the salads. They are amazing. They have great service with a smile. But get there early because the line gets long. Mostly ToGo orders. Only a few tables out front. Excellent beverage variety, unique candy and all kinds of chips. Bring your appetite the sandwiches are huge!

My friends and I frequently make the short walk from base down to Compagno's and get new sandwiches every time. Our favorites are the Branch Specials, the Army is my favorite. It's ran by Bennet, an incredibly personable guy. The sandwiches are massive, by the way. If you're a small person I suggest getting a half sandwich.

What a great place. Sells subs, beer and chips. What more does one need? $12.50 for a sub and really should have had a half sub. One full sub was more than enough for both me and my wife. The sub tasted great as the ingredients were fresh and in the proper proportion. We had a #2 which was avacado... More

In town for some r&r. Decided to drive the little woman around the point and take the 17 mile drive. Wanting to be relaxing and somewhat romantic, figured we could grab lunch to have a quiet picnic. Hit the reviews and found this place. Looks great, had to try it. I'm always one for different, so their specials looked delish.... More

The food is great. Excellent selection. Fresh product. Nice collection of cakes. More than 20 selections of cold and warm sandwiches. Best for to go orders. They take call-in orders with a 10-20 minutes turn around time, and do well on their time estimates. Good service, nice people and their priced are decent with large portions even the half- sandwiches.... More
