  1. Art's is like a pastrami sandwich might be in Wyoming; in other words bland at best.

      Agree with brwencino, Art's Subs is meh.

      If you want a good sandwich, there are a few better options in the area, including Dan's Subs on Ventura and Shoup which has good hot and cold sandwiches.

      Two other good options are actually italian markets with a sandwich counter. One is Cavaretta's Italian Groceries on Sherman Way near Topanga, and the other is Cricca's Italian Deli on Topanga south of Ventura Blvd.

      1. re: RacerX

        agree. IMHO the big difference is the other places appear to be run by Italians who know what a sub should be. Art's is run by a non Italian. I had the same problem with Giamela's. Good Italian name, right? The place was run by an Asian couple.
        Where would you go for authentic Chinese food, for example, Mr. Schwartz's Chinese or Mr. Chan's?
        I know i'm gonna get static on this.

          Though sometimes it does work, i.e. Ralph's Subs in Orange, which is now run by a Korean couple I believe.

          1. re: kevin

            Maybe it's the same couple who ran Giamela's in NoHo many years ago.

    2. Huh, I'm feeling quite out of sync from these replies. ;) We regularly order from Art's and I'm a very big fan. Mind you, I'm not a pastrami person so maybe that's part of the disconnect? I usually get the Italian or simply the capicolla with dry salami and I'm always very happy with it. I love the fresh bread rolls that they bake on-site. I work at the Kaiser 'round the corner so we're very happy to have Art's within delivery range. I've eaten at Dan's Subs and they're fine, but I don't see them being very different or better than Art's.
