need sandwiches near Walnut Grove/Valley Blvd

I have 15 teenagers to feed for lunch this Saturday. I need to be able to pick up around noon time. I'm not familiar with the area so appreciate any suggestion of good sandwiches. Thanks.

  1. I am guessing Claro's Italian Market, call them and order ahead of time, they do a premade basic Italian sub for like $4-$4.50 for a large.

    1. also look into banh mi's. there are a plethora of choices up and down valley, from banh mi che cali, to lee's, to saigon sandwiches, etc.

      banh mi's range from $1.75 to $2.75.

        Banh Mi Che Cali is in the same mall as 888, almost right at Walnut Grove, and a hundred yards or so east of Claro's. Sandwich heaven! Claro's pre-made sandwiches are really good, and $3.99 for a large, $2.99 for "small"...which is still plenty big. The custom-made ones can run a bit more, depending on what you want.

        Speaking of teenagers, there was a group of them standing nearby us one Sunday, also waiting for a table at 888. At one point a girl detached herself from the crowd and went into BMCC, then came back out with a nice big banh mi, which she proceeded to devour as a maybe my first idea, of getting one large Claro's sandwich for each two kids, might not be adequate...!

      2. Claro's is your best bet for location. For more choices, there is also The Stuffed Sandwich. It's not too far from there.
        Menu here:

        1. Thank you all. Sounds like Claro's fits what I need, and good price, too.

          1. You might want to try Lee's Sandwiches, although not the best vietnamese sandwiches (bahn mi) in the area. They have European type sandwiches (ham & cheese, etc.) on banguettes. Each sandwich is $3 or less, and they have a big variety, so you can just pick and choose a bunch of different ones.
