It's hard to find a meatball sandwich here that compares to the ones I remember in Boston and New York, but the ones at Poma's come really close. I haven't tried the rest of their menu but, if it's as good as the meatball sandwiches,...More

I was in the area taking some pictures of the OB pier and decided to pop in for a quick bite to eat. The service was fast, the food was great, and the prices were reasonable. It was the customer’s trifecta! I had the classic...More

Have come here since childhood, always asked to stop after fishing or surfing at OB. Gives me chills just to see this place and remember over 30 years of coming in to eat subs on the patio or at the beach.

My husband and I each ordered the Torpedo - just the right amount of meat, cheese and vegs on delicious bread. Probably the best sub I've had in a long time. We ordered a pizza for our grandson and it was delicious too.

I love Poma's! One short block from the pier.They have not changed since I moved to Ocean Beach in 1975. Those hard Salunto rolls are dakine. I like the turkey and provolone, cold. It comes with mayo, fresh tomatoes, peppers. Their meatball sandwich is the...More
