This place seems to have gone downhill lately. I went to UCLA and practically ate here at least weekly. It used to be open 'til the wee hours of the morning and was reasonably priced, but now closes early and seems to be more expensive each time I visit. I recently had a poor experience where I'd been in a hurry and ravenously ordered a 12" sandwich, then after waiting ten minutes received a 6" sandwich. Looking at my receipt at that point I realized they'd misheard my order, but the price I'd paid and my clear request didn't hint at miscommunication at order time. I explained this and asked politely if I could just "upgrade" my sandwich size by getting another 6" and paying the difference between 6" and 12" (they're nearly the same price -- let's say the difference is $1, but to have ordered a new 6" would've been at least $5), but the staff was rude; I ended up arguing with them and leaving with my small sandwich and large sense of annoyance. Surely a few dollars to them shouldn't have been worth pushing "the principle of the thing", though it was to me -- when that's all that's on the line, let the customer be right! I would've been back many times since that incident, when I've instead gone elsewheres. That Roll Inn isn't open past midnight or so anymore (when there always used to be a crowd -- it always seems rather dead now when I drive by at night) and has prices that are well above Subway's (or In-n-Out's, next door) is another signal that things have been on the decline. Kinda sad, after all these years.

Pros: super tasty sandwiches

Cons: overpriced, hours

So this place looks like a dump but it's been around since at least the early 1990s when I started going there. The food is safe and cheap, and they're open till 2am. Good for those times when you need something a sandwich.

I didn't think too highly of this sandwich stand when I first visited Westwood (it seemed a bit grimy), but after I tried their pastrami sandwich there, I can't help but go back for more! They put plenty of meat with complementary veggies (like cucumbers)... and their fried (with seasoning) are absolutely divine! I also tried their bulgogi sandwich the other day too, which though the concept sounds a bit strange, was still delicious! Also they renovated the look of the place by repainting and adding new signs, so it loooks a lot more inviting than it used to. And the prices are decent- 3.50 for an 8-inch sandwich!

Pros: pastrami sandwich, good prices, seasoned fries

Cons: limited seating, parking

Last week I ordered 270 subs for my ethnic club members. Also had 10% off, saved almost $80 and got computer stuff. The subs were Bam! Everybody loved it. Grilled chicken, steak and ground beef subs were still fresh and hot. My favorite is definately ground beef triple meat sub. To go boxes were beautiful and service was wonderful. It's a really great deal. Now I grab it for midnight meal.

Pros: very fresh, plenty of meat, friendly and young

Cons: very crowded, no coffee

Every spring I order almost 150 subs here for my fellows. I like the great tast as well as wonderful service.

This is the ideal college student spot that post-grads can frequent as well. The prices are great ($3.50 for an 8-inch sandwich, fries, and a drink), and they stay open until very late. I highly recommend the pastrami and the steak sandwiches, and always remember to put the red seasoning on the hot and fresh fries. Only caveat: parking is desperately hard to find.
