Found this little gem by accident and so glad we did! My entire family loved it!! So much so that we went back a second time during our visit! I had the Turkey Sam Jam and my other family members had the Italian. Both were too die for!! Also, Becky's Sweet Tea with pineapple is sheer perfection!! A bit pricey... More

I saw this place featured on a local television show and the host raved about the food. So we drove about 50 minutes to try it out. We had the Turkey sandwich with the bacon butter and the French Dip. Both sandwiches were fantastic--but the French Dip was the winner of the two--my husband and I agreed it was because... More

This is the place to get your sandwich! You know it's good when the locals rave about this place. It's not in the usual touristy area which we love. Highly highly recommend the meatball melt....yummmmmm

I LOVE this place. I've been a regular for a while now. Everything I've had has been good. The avocado toast is AMAZING. One day they were out of something I wanted and they suggested the beet sandwich. I said I didn't like beets and they said to try it anyway. Surprisingly I liked it. The staff is super friendly...

This is a little hole in the wall in the Kaimuki district of Oahu. They are located right in a municipal parking lot (how's that for convenience?). Their sandwiches are just excellent. My favorites are the Beer Brisket and the Pork Belly with Marinara. The meats are really soft. The sauce in the sandwiches are tasty and the ciabatta bread... More

Looks like they've changed the menu since I used to go there, which makes me wish I could go try the new creations! My go to here was the Avocado Toast, which really was a full lunch for me. So good! The avo is always ripe and the balsamic drizzle is really tasty. I definitely like my food, but I... More

This place has charms: it's an absolute hole in the wall, it's got a young, hardworking owner who created a menu of bold tasting sandwiches reminiscent of East coast and Europe. Crunchy breads, explosive sauces and fun sandwich names such as Turkey Sam Jam. Some of the original sandwiches are gone, but in their place are meaty and flavorful experiences.

Very tasty sandwiches here! Reasonable prices. Only drawback would be the parking lot. It can sometimes be tricky to find a spot during lunch or dinner. It's a paid parking lot but most times you have to drive around and "stalk" people to find a spot. But if you get in, the place is great! It's small with only a... More

i got the cubano. son got the french dip. my daughter had the special that was a turkey and ham sandwich. all were superb. it's a bit pricey (around $11 per sandwich) but it is filling. these are the finest sandwiches in Honolulu. i rate them above the Whole Foods sandwich bar which i regard very highly.

After being on Oahu for a week and trying eating spots from one end to the other Earl Sandwich is the top of the pyramid. No fluff here,simple shop,simple seating(all eight chairs that most don't match) but a sandwich that was second to none. Justin doesn't make a sandwich he crafts it. Try the Jamestown, it was like Thanksgiving dinner... More
