We were on a tour and they ate at a Mexican joint. Wife and I don't like Mexican, so we found this sub shop across the street. Awesome roast beef and turkey. Only could eat half of it. It was awesome. If lived in the area I would be a regular.

My friend and I stopped into this sandwich place on a totally random excursion to Pasadena. We had never heard of it before, nor looked at any reviews. As soon as we approached the counter, the servers were friendly, funny, and engaging. They gave my friend and I the "Trust the Cook" to split (since, as the cashier joked, we... More

This small shop is located across the street from Bed, Bath and Beyond. There is a parkingklot in back and to the side, plus street parking. Finally got in on my third try, because lines were so lone when I went before. Closes early-2pm. Best advice is order by phone and it will be ready to pick up for eat... More

The "Trust the Cook" sandwich is AMAZING. The cook puts whatever he wants in it and it will not disappoint you. Half my sandwich tasted different from the other half and I was shocked at what was in it - all incredible. It's makes Subway sandwich artists look like amateurs. This shop is defiantly the pro artists!

Yummy sandwiches with awesome service. The sandwiches are big enough to share or take half for the road! I wish this was closer to Ohio. Don't miss this while in Pasadena!

Fun, friendly staff. Sandwiches cost a little more, but you get a lot more meat so worth the price. Get there 10-15 minutes before noon to beat the lunch crowd. You won't go away hungry, if your near by a great stop, right off the freeway and ample parking.

Great variety, fresh ingredients and top notch service! If you are like me and love to frequent a small 'hole in the wall' once in a while, then this place is for you. You won't be disappointed. Great selection of creative sandwiches, classic sides, and all for a very reasonable price. Just plan on about $10 for a very nice... More

If you are anywhere near Pasadena, you really have to try this wonderful, little hole in the wall, family run sandwich restaurant par excellence. Hugh sandwiches to say the least. The daily special is a site to behold. Only precaution is to check out the roast beef that it is not overcooked. Otherwise.....perfection!!!!

Was by far one of the best sandwiches I've ever had 👌. Really quality meat that will have your mouth watering with every bite! I really liked the atmosphere and the lady at the counter was very sweet. Definitely recommend
