Average sub sandwiches, but the bread is really good here. Only been here once. Would go back if I were in the area. I ordered some sort of a turkey sub and soda. Basic seating.

I absolutely LOVE the el Italiano sub! The bread is perfect, the toppings and portions are superb. Order it hot and you won't be disappointed. The meatball subs, gobblers and hamlits rock too...but the Italiano is simply the best ever.

If you are a Springfield native, Monty's is a well known place for amazing subs. Anything from egg salad subs, Italian subs, loaded cheese subs or just plain ol' meatball, Monty's has it! I frequent the one on Sangamon Ave and have never had an issue-staff is always so nice. Even when I eventually move farther away, a trip to... More

Not sure why anyone would call this a "restaurant" or post that strangely inappropriate picture. This is just a particularly good and fun strip mall sub shop. Five of us on a business road trip, three working the food reviews on their smartphones, came up with Monty's for a quick lunch stop. The guy behind the counter is a hoot,... More

I am really confused where this picture came from, but it is not the restaurant that we saw.... The real restaurant looks like a run down subway...we just drove on by!!!

My husband & I decided to take a Saturday and spend it in Springfield, IL visiting the Lincoln museum and looking for some new dining. I read all the great reviews on Monty's Subs so decided to give it a try for lunch. When we arrived at 11:45 a.m. the parking lot was vacant. When we walked in, I wasn't... More

The "Cuban":roast pork, ham, pickles, mustard, Swiss is what I had and Kathleen had the "Gobbler": piles of shaved turkey breast with Swiss. A four minute oven toast and relax; you can eat in or on the veranda. The startling moment was when the chef pushed the wrapped subs across the counter and said "Two organic tofu on veggie-burgers" with... More

My sister lives in Springfield, IL, and put me on to Monty's Subs. I especially like their El Italiano. I like to get it with "sweet" bread, but had it with wheat this time and it was just as awesome. They go head-to-head with Head West in Springfield for the best subs in town...I've had both and my preference is... More

Monty's knows how to make a great sub. From all the toppings you can get to the soft and fresh bread it goes on-you can never lose. My husband loves the Gobbler and they pile it on high as my favorite is the mouth watering Cheesehead (best to get toasted) A+++ Monty's!

I had a Monty's~ Beefeater on wheat, loaded minus onions, add banana peppers, toasted, halved ~ (yes, that's how you order it) for lunch today. For about 6 bucks you get enough sandwich for two meals, on fresh in-house made bread, stuffed with goodness. You can take it to go, or eat it at a booth. (the picture at the... More
