Anthonelli's makes the biggest, baddest sandwiches in East County! If you are a sandwich/Deli fan, this is the place to go. The waits are long, so phone ahead if you can. They have a large selection of sandwiches, along with sides and some great desserts too. You can't miss with anything from this place. Lunch times are super busy, though, so avoid lunch time, or phone ahead. You will not regret it!

If you are looking for a great, not just good, freshly made sandwich then this is the place! Be prepared to wait in line during lunch hours as others have figured it out too.
I hate places that only put a few slices of meat and then charge you $7. Not here - piled up nice and high the way it should be. Personal favs are pastrami, turkey, capicolla and the chicken parma.

Recommended to me by some friends and this is probably one of the best sandwich shops in El Cajon. Sandwiches were big, with lots of meat and fixings.

We go here whenever we feel like having a GOOD sandwich. They are very generous with the meat and the breads are fresh and delicious. We have even ordered the large sandwiches for a party - everyone loved them. The only reason I only gave it 4 and not 5 - there are very few tables, very small parking lot and it can take half an hour to get a sandwich when they are busy.
