Stopped here to grab a sandwich for the trip back to LA and was surprised with all the vegan sandwich options! My cashier was vegan and knowledgeable about the vegan options. I decided to go with the meatball sandwich and was happy with my choice. Definitely give this place a try!

We went to the new 1 in Salinas California. My husband and I both have the meatball vegan sandwich it was delicious so yummy we will definitely be going back!!

Pros: vegan cheese, big portions, great bread
Cons: a little pricey, closes at 7 p.m.

I've had a couple different sandwiches here and was happy with both. The breaded veggie chicken is quite delicious. Price is a bit high (nearly $9 for a kaiser roll sized sandwich), but when you have a hankering for a big veggie meat sandwich this a great option.

Pros: many veggie sandwiches, good veggie meat, quick service even with a line
Cons: expensive!, parking is a pain, often busy

Disappointing for vegans!

The sandwich options seemed good standing in line, but when it came time to order, the cashier said the sandwich I wanted was unavailable. I tried to select another one, but again, she said it wasn't available since they didn't have the breaded vegetable needed for the ingredients! The only option she suggested was just some vegetables in between bread, nothing that Subway couldn't do. My friend got a turkey sandwich and said the flavor was fine, but the portions were painfully small and overpriced. I will not be returning!

Cons: very few seating, lack of available vegan options, small portions
