“Decent deli”
Reviewed 10 January 2014

Not the best in town - first visit just 'okay' - still way beyond subway, ample portions & make your own ingredients... nice deck, near college (suspect it's key to their business). Beers & subs. A short jump off the 101. Very "bready" rolls, so a "foot long" leaves a bowling ball feel in the gut. Visited after lunch hr midweek - no problem with service...friendly staff.

“Surfing Subs”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

Kona's offers the freshest sandwiches anywhere! They slice the meat and cheeses in front of you. They have the biggest sandwiches. You would swear that the "foot long" sourdough sandwich is actually about 18 inches! You get a number of "freebie" condiments and veggies when ordering the "works" and then there's another handful of freebies that you can add on top of those! We had a couple of ham, turkey, salami, provolone sandwich with all the trimmings, chips and drinks for under $20! The prices are incredibly kind for student (and non-student) budgets. Sometimes, there's quite a wait as the line stretches around the building. Every afternoon, they offer a "destroyer" challenge of eating a 2 foot sandwich. There's only about 8 photos on the board of the successful challengers for this feat. All in all, this is the place to go for a great sandwich in SLO!

“Fresh!”
Reviewed 21 June 2013

This place makes it breads and they are wonderful. Pick your bread, they slice the meats fresh as you order, and add whatever extras you want. The wheat roll was like Hawaiian bread, sweet and perfect. There was a line out the door when we arrived. It takes time to make each sandwich to order, we waited about 10 minutes, but we all loved our lunch. Inside seating and tables with shade outside.

“Great food! Reasonable prices!”
Reviewed 14 February 2013

I used to eat here when I was in college & then I heard it burned down. I went just this last weekend while I was visiting for a few days! The food was just as good as I remember & very affordable! I just love their wheat bread (it's very slightly sweet)!
