“Run...Don't Walk For A Remarkable Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2013 via mobile

Between soccer matches, we need some sustenance and "Ace" hit the spot. Besides for an unbelievable selection of sandwiches (over 100 combinations), it is a family run restaurant and it shows...attention to detail, great service and a willingness to accommodate special requests. We ordered four sandwiches (one that had to be split between two boys, one with food allergies) and all were amazing. There was an initial problem with the half sandwich for the child with allergies, but instead of trying to correct the problem, they remade the half sandwich...class and quality.

We will become regulars when in the area...

“My Favorite Cold Cut Sandwich”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

This tiny sandwich shop on El Camino delivers with consistency every time. I'm not able to provide insight on very much of the menu. But if "The Realness" is any indication of the rest of their food, you will not be disappointed. "The Realness" is turkey, ham, and roastbeef. And, it is topped with some condiments, bacon, and avocado. The italian bread is always perfect. It goes very nicely with their bottled root beer. Seriously, it is easily 1 of my top 5 favorite sandwiches. And, I can't think of any better cold cut sandwich.

In the middle of the lunch rush, parking can be tricky. And, they only have about 10 small tables including the 3 or 4 outside. But, it is worth it. Also, be advised that the price is above average for lunch. The sandwich and drink run about $12.

One more plus is definitely their customer service. They are always friendly, and make the effort to find you when your food is ready, even delivering it to you outside on the patio.

“Gourmet Sandwiches and Great Personal Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2008

The Ace of Sandwiches is one of our favorite places for grabbing lunch and friends we've referred to it always have been happy to discover it.

The three things that make them stand out are quality ingredients, an vast, innovative menu and really great customer service.

They have a tremendous range of sandwiches, ranging from the very simple and traditional to really tasty, multi-ingredient creations on sliced, roll, wrap or grilled panini. The quality of the meats, veggies, sauces and breads is noticeable.

Re atmosphere and service, Mario and his team treat everyone warmly and if you come with any frequency, they make the extra effort to remember preferences. Just a really great place for sandwiches if you're visiting Palo Alto or live in the area.
