30 years ago we would walk out of the back gate of the base and get a sandwich here. I love the meatball sub! In the last 30 years, I have returned every time I am in Monterey. Same great sub! My family got different sandwiches are were pleased with the flavor and the quantity. Incredible cakes and desserts, too.... More

Came here on a friend's recommendation, and I was glad I did. The owner and staff were so friendly and they have great pro military decorations. The sandwich was MASSIVE and tasty. Huge drink selection too.

Excellent sandwiches, salads, wine and beer selection! Pick up snacks or grab a full lunch while you trek down the 17-mile Drive! The service is good, they're pretty quick even during busy summer months! Excellent selection of eats and drinks for all budgets!
