Fresh Cut Subs

coastal | Aug 26, 2004 11:25 AM

In the bread basket thread below I mentioned a little sandwich place off of Ortega highway that had the great submarine sandwiches. I couldn't remember the name but said I'd get back to all.

It's Fresh Cut Subs. There are 2 in Hemet and 1 in Murrieta. They don't have a website but I found this good review from TigerDave...

We stumbled across Fresh Cut Subs by accident one day while out and about in Murrieta. Although this little strip-mall sandwich shop isn't very fancy decor-wise, they certainly make up for it with one of the best subs I've ever had.

I find Subways to be 'OK'. Quiznos is 'good but kind of pricey'. Submarina is 'so-so but very expensive' ($10 for a 12" sub!?!?), and until now, Togo's has been my personal favorite. But be prepared should you venture into Fresh Cut!

Their foot long sandwiches are toasted and include a full half-pound of meat and cheese. They used fresh-sliced avocado, and I couldn't believe how many overlapping slices they give you (Togo's charges about $1 for a tiny scoop). Furthermore, you can have them add olives, pickles and pepperoncinis at no extra charge! Before long, my $7.00 foot-long sub appeared to be weighing in at a hefty 5 pounds. Although I can easily pack away a 12" Subway sub and still be hungry, I was full after the first half of my 12" Fresh Cut Sub.

Michelle, the manager, told me that were previously part of the "Sub Station II" chain, but then decided to become their own store. The Murrieta location is their third (they have two others in Hemet) and all three are privately owned by the same owner. I suggested they put one in Temecula and she said she's already been telling the owner the same thing.
