  1. Ahhh Sepi's!! If you are in for a simple well prepared sub, you won't be dissappointed....if you are looking for a sub that will rock your world, well those days are long gone. Make sure to order extra meat on your sammy, or you will be really dissappointed. The up side is it is cheap, and they have pitchers of beer, also cheap.

      I haven't been to Sepi's in about 2 years (see link)....

      ...but I doubt that things have improved. If you have no memories of it's former glory (10+ years ago), then you probably won't be disappointed.

      1. If you want a great sub, try Victor Junior's in Culver City. Best Italian sub on the Westside by far. If you order extra meat, the sub is enough for two.

          For subs, especially Italian subs, I prefer Bay Cities in Santa Monica. Their bread is divine.

        2. I agree that Bay Cities and Victor Jr's are better, but Sepi's is by far the best sub place in Westwood Village. The key to good value there is to order the large rather than the regular -- it is truly twice as big, and only a couple of bucks more. Sepi's is superior to the nearby Socko's, whose product has that industrial feel (think Subway) and taste and which has a very difficult time getting condiments correct as ordered. I also prefer Sepi's to the Roll Inn, the cheap sandwich hut on Gayley, which used to have great value but whose prices have risen and where double meat is a necessity for a balanced sandwich.

          1. As many of the other posters have said, the sandwiches at Sepi's are just ok (they aren't very flavorful and the quality of the meat isn't great). I think you go for the atmosphere more than anything else.

            The hoagie at Southstreet (often overlooked) is a much better sub option in Westwood.
