Decided to order a sandwich, from this shop, rather than going to a typical chain. Only one female employee was working on that day. Placing and receiving orders were very slow. However, this poor lady kept a smile on her face and a happy skip in her step. I chose the ham and cheese grinder with veggies and vinegar and... More

Excited to find a great place to grab a sub. Bread was fresh as was the avocado (two things that are usually the first to disappoint at other places). Friendly staff.

Hubby had ham and cheese. I had roast beef. Both were packed with meat and veggies. Delicious! Cash only. Not much room to eat there.

We have been coming here for years! We crave their sandwiches, they are that good! The bread is outstanding and the oil and vinegar with the veggies is amazing! I don't know how the sandwich shop across the street stays in business!

We stumbled across this place and had to go in because it smelled amazing. I ordered the house specialty, yellow submarine, and it was delicious! The French bread was soft and chewy and obviously fresh. It was perfectly dressed and nice and big. Hand down best sandwich ever. Total hole-in-wall local place. Loved it!

I would hope you'd ever read the whole thing. If you want to good sandwich walk across the street. Don't waste your money or your time. I've been going to this yellow subs sandwich shop for over 20 years. And this will be my last time ever going there. I used to drive from San Francisco just to go have... More

The subs here are soooo good that we went more than once while in Lake Tahoe! Make sure you order the oil and vinegar on your sandwich and have them add the parmesan top off!!! YUM

Visited the Yellow Sub today. The sandwich was fresh a chocked full of fresh cheese and veggies The bread was top notch and had good chew. The service was fast and attentive. The lemonade was fresh squeezed. This shop is a local's favorite. When in Tahoe, make it a point to stop by, you won't be disappointed.

I have been here three times and it is always great. There are lots of interesting sandwich choices. The sandwiches are huge and stuffed with delicious toppings. Their homemade soups are always good too.
