2 words - meatball SUB... with cheese and extra peppers. It comes out piping hot, on the best bread/roll. Don't even know how to describe except that it is AWESOME. Don't forget - cash only. Has ATM at restaurant.

First time to Ocean Beach, San Diego and visited twice. Both times the sandwiches we got were well made and very tasty. Being form the east coast had the best roast beef hoagie I ever had. Would recommend visiting if you are in Ocean Beach.

If you are traveling to San Diego, go to Poma's and get the pizza sandwich. The meatball sandwich is amazing also. You can walk straight up the street onto the Ocean Beach pier 100 yards away. Parking is usually difficult in the area around Poma's like any beach community. It's a short 15 minute drive from the airport and worth... More

I alway read/write reviews about different places, this one no exception. From the moment you step in Pomas you know your in a Italian deli, the smell of bread,meats and cheeses fill the air, in a good way. We had antipasto salad and split a pastrami samdwich, actually we split both, way to much, in a good way. Excellent excellent... More

Since I was a teen, getting out of the water in Ocean Beach, and scarfing down pizza, and sandwiches after an ocean dip, and on through most of my adult life, I have enjoyed this small place that just consistently nails the fresh rolls, produce, and meats to give us one our most favored of meals: take out to Sunset...

Wonderful location and tasty sandwiches. Price is reasonable, but this isn't a sit-down deli. Very casual, no table service. Just grab and go

Twice we ordered takeout meals. First, four of us ordered two eggplant parm dinners and two lasagna dinners. They come with salads and a ton of fabulous garlic bread. The dinners were excellent, BUT there is no way a single person could account for a nine-inch deep dish dinner. Each dinner was a good serving for two good eaters, which... More

Every time we visit San Diego, this is a must go for my husband, The meatball sandwich and the Italian sandwich are his faves. They have been a staple in the OB area for years. We recently brought some friends here and they loved it. Great place to pick up a sando and head to the beach for some people... More
