Went here a few times while in Springfield. Each time, the subs were great and very tasty. Very well prepared and loaded with meats and veggies. Definitely fills you up. Recommended when looking for quick lunch.

Went to the Wabash location today. Had a co-worker that tried to turn in punch cards that were "phased out" and the words from the dude behind the counter was to "just throw them away." The sandwiches were terrible (worst meatball sandwich ever) and friendliness non-existent. I'm always nice with these reviews, but these guys can't get it together.

Monty's subs are the best! They are huge and feature a variety of tastes breads. Each sandwich features lots of everything; meat, cheeses, vegetables, sauces, spices, and more. You can eat it cold or they can toast it for you. In addition to the sandwiches, there are great soups to select from. Can't decide, then get a soup and sandwich... More

Second time here both times really good sandwiches, got soup today, asked for loaf of bread to go with the soup and was told, they can only serve loaf of bread and soup when two people are working. Huh? Really they have to have two people there to hand me a loaf of bread to go with the soup?

I've been to Monty's a few times and every time they have delivered a great sandwich. I ordered the Gobbler on sweet bread- tasty! The staff aren't super friendly. If you're prepared for that, then go for it. Heads up: No smiles, no "welcome to Monty's", little warmth. If that means something to you, you might consider another location or... More

As always, another great sub. I had the baked potatoes soup and the Italian sub. Great combination. Always hot and fresh. Can't wait to come back.

First time to this place and whenever coming through Springfield, I'll definitely stop by for a sub. This place was low key, simple and best subs ever. Packed with meat, spices and great deals. The El Italiano on sweet Italian bread was tasty as heck. I highly recommend this place.

Lived in Springfield for 30 years. Great value. Consistently fresh ingredients, made-to-order sandwiches. Favorites are the Gobbler, Hamlit and Italiano though the Egg Salad sandwich is also exceptional. I order all my sandwiches with the works including hot peppers. The real difference at Monty's is the bread. The Italian bread is like biting into a pillow. Big, fluffy with a... More

Great Sandwich! Freshly made, bread was excellent and really made the sandwich. Great homemade unsweetened tea. Great place for lunch as we were passing through.

Love the hot subs piled high with roast beef! They have been around a long time but I prefer them to most of the new places opened up!
