I dropped by to get a sandwich to take to the dog park. Got the veggie sandwich. Very good, not quite enough mustard, reasonable price and good service. I'd say kind of a throwback place. Dog liked the sandwich too.

It's an below average place due to wait time (2 sandwiches 15 minutes - I was the only customer), poor ambiance, and mediocre quality. Friendly staff.

They have great selections. Great service - follow-ups & additional requests were complied with no complaints. The price is reasonable & they delivered on time.

Darrell and Ramon. Your Sandwich shop is crazy. Ace of Sandwiches is so good, i don't know where to start. I was in Palo Alto because my daughter underwent brain surgery at Stanford Hospital. It was our first day before surgery, and we were all hungry for a late lunch but didn't want to eat sit down. Everyone wanted a... More

This is by far my favorite sandwich place I have ever been. The owner is extremely friendly and makes some amazing sandwiches. There is a line during the lunch rush, but they make the sandwiches extremely fast so it won't take too long. My favorite is by far the Louisiana Lightning. However, you definitely need to take time to read... More

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... More

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... More
