Stopped here for lunch after reading TA. Place is basic as basic gets which is a relief as I am not wowed by the "gourmet" places. As stated in many reviews, this is a one man show and he does a great job. Very short...More

The "soup Nazi" comparison below is accurate. Get in line, have your order ready, and watch the master do his thing. Oh..and have cash (only) ready. The whole place looks like it's stuck in the 1970s; the owner is clearly putting all his focus into...More

Excellent. Many have compared place to the famous "soup Nazi" of Seinfeld fame. And for good reason! Excellent food, served in a no-nonsense manner. There's a reason for the lines on the weekends!

Whatever you do, make sure you get avocado and the sauce. It can change your life. The sandwiches are huge. The dude behind the counter is the man, and the sandwiches are soooo good. I've been probably 45 times and its consistently great. Also great...More

While sightseeing one day, my husband and I stumbled upon Marina Submarine (2299 Union St, San Francisco, CA 94123-3901 (415) 921-3990). Since it was our first time, we were a little confused and thankfully it wasn’t too crowded so we didn’t feel overly embarrassed. We...More

Yummy, toasted, hearty! Sure the line is horrible, yet if you think to call for your sandwich in advance you won't have to wait long.

Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
