Meconi's used to be the place to go for great subs. They moved to a much nicer building and now it's a place for a large sandwich fast. A big extra soft bun with lunch meat and shredded lettuce. But what do I know? it's always busy at lunchtime.

The sandwiches, soups and service are the best! Their bread is fresh baked, the ingredients are fresh and all sandwiches are made to order. Their veggie sandwich is enough for two meals and the meat sandwiches are even bigger. Meconi's has been a part of the Olympia/Lacey culture for decades and literally packed during the lunch ours. Calling ahead for... More

Been here twice in the last week. The gluten free sub rolls are fantastic. Baked fresh daily. Also love their potato salad. Staff is fast, efficient and gluten safety knowledgeable. Highly recommend.

It's hard to imagine that subs can truly be different across restaurants, but these subs are the best. It's the bread, the dressing, and the cheese. They have the perfect recipe for authentic Italian subs. It's a really inexpensive lunch too. Great soups, potato salad too, and they're fast and efficient. If you're gluten free, their bread is actually really... More

The food is very authentic EXCEPT the "Hot Italian Sausage Sub" is, in fact, NOT hot Italian sausage but rather is heated up sweet Italian sausage! Ha-ha...still so good that they are forgiven.

I've lived here for 16 years, and have tried this local chain half a dozen times. I've never had a sandwich that had any flavor and I've tried several. If you want a sub at this quality, save your money and go to Subway or the local Texaco.

This is one of the best sub shops in the region. The bread they use is outstanding. We have ordered them for parties at work. They are the go to sub shop.

All the Meconi's in the Oly area are great. The one by the airport gets pretty crowded during lunch time with all the state workers coming in. However, it is worth the wait. Sandwiches here are better than any other sub shops around. The soups are fantastic! The people here are fantastic, we go there frequently.
