Driven by here many times. Decided to stop last week. Mostly Vietnamese dishes. We had a "Bowl of Goodness" and a mild "Banh Mi lemongrass with pork". Both very tasty. Nice staff too. Will stop again as we like Vietnamese cuisine and there aren't that...More

The food is fresh and the variety of subs, salads, pizza and Vietnamese specialties is a nice take on a sub shop. The meatballs are traditional, tender and juicy with a great tomato sauce on Banh Mi, a soft type roll that was delicious. Can't...More

Great selection of subs and sandwiches. I asked to have the bread toasted which was done very well. Also noted several Asian items on the menu.

The name doesn't fit the taste. Very good pizza and subs. The selection is endless and the price is just right. It's a little tricky to located but with the search.

Darleen's has always had a good reputation for subs, and since they added bahn mi sandwiches, it's gotten even better. I had the steak bahn mi and it was delicious. The roll was fresh and crisp. I usually get take-out because the place is small...More

Everything about this sandwich was great. Super hot BBQ with the carrots and cucumbers with cilantro and spicy sauce. The people were friendly and it was clean. I will be having more soon.

This place is a classic hidden gem. I tried the bahn mi and it was super tasty, different, fresh, spicy, hot and it's very fairly priced. It's basically a Vietnamese style sub on French bread, toasted nicely, with toppings like shredded carrots, cucumber and lots...More
