Unfortunately, this restaurant, which had really good bread is no longer open in downtown San Luis Obispo.

We were visiting my daughter who goes to Cal Poly, and her and a friend took us to Sal's. When she was a freshman we went to places like The Habit or Firestone Grill (great by the way), now they have to be out of the way, cool places, where only select students go to hang out and grab a... More

Wanted to grab some sandwiches for a picnic and stopped in to Sal's. The super cool guy at the counter gave me a tip that if I couldn't decide which sandwich to choose, just make my own. And so I did. Turkey, chicken, Brie, pickles, tomato and lettuce with spicy mustard. And toasted. Boy oh boy was he right. YUMMM-MEEEE!!... More

Awesome sandwich place. Their bread is great - make sure to get the Back Porch Crunch. They say its their best, and they are not kidding. Service is fast and friendly. Highly recommended if you happen to be in downtown SLO

So many generous sandwiches to choose from, it's hard to make a choice. There's something for everyone, even vegans like myself, and the portions are very generous. Only drawback is that it takes awhile to study the extensive menu and the crowded space and order-at-the-counter routine make it difficult for first-timers. As if I needed an excuse to come back!

I have eaten twice at Sal's and I have yet to have a bad meal. I will go back again since they have big selection of choices. What is neat they can turn any sandwich into a salad.

Sal's is a new sandwich shop in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. Tables on sidewalk as well as inside. Their menu includes their own creative take on sandwiches, or you can build your own. I like to create my own, filling mine with a variety of veggies, meat and specialty sauces. I would suggest ordering your sandwich on... More
