Subs in SFV

I have already searched the board and I have got Dans, Cavarettas and Italia in Agoura and Mission Hills near Trader Joes. Any other suggestions?

      Hey Burger Boy,

      Would you recommend any particular sandwich at De Franko's? I've driven by that place for years and have never tried it out. My gang -- the Van Nuys Chowers -- claims territory in that 'hood.

      Incidentally, their online menu is laden with typos; if they pay this much attention to their website, I wonder how much attention is paid to the food, the sandwiches, the cleanliness?

      Incidentally -- are we related? We share the same surname.

      Thanks in advance, happy sandwiching.

        I'm not a big fan of DeFranko's anymore. The sandwiches are just OK, and the staff there acts like they are doing you a favor by making you a sandwich.

    2. Cricca's, on Topanga Cyn. Blvd. at Dumetz -- maybe half a mile south of Ventura Blvd.

      1. My Hero in Northridge.

        9514 Reseda Blvd

          I second My Hero. I've been going there for decades. It's at the north east corner of Reseda and Plummer. They warm up their sandwiches and put an amazing tomato salad on them. The only sandwich I ever get is roast beef and cheese, so I can't vouch for their others.

          Another great place for sandwiches, although they aren't technically subs, is Panino's on the east side of Topanga a few blocks south of Ventura Bl. Their sandwiches are awesome.

            I've only had the Italian sub; it's fantastic.

        2. Matt & Tony's on Sepulveda right near the 118 frwy is also a good spot, get the peepersteak or the cheese steak.

          1. Is Burbank part of the SFV? If so, I've always liked Santoro's at 1423 W. Burbank Blvd.

              Dan's Famous Subs in Woodland Hills is the bomb.
