Indulgent sandwiches. Good Italian and veggie subs, tuna melts are top notch. Baguettes are baked fresh. Try a daily special & a milkshake

Citysearch Editorial Review – This unassuming sandwich shop is an Eagle Rock favorite for big, tasty subs and fresh smoothies. The space is fairly no-frills, but you don't exactly come here for the ambience. Dave, the friendly owner with a wicked Boston accent, is passionate about his operation, and it shows. Grilled sandwiches and hot and cold subs are served on sandwich bread or a fresh-baked baguette, and subs are served in six- or ten-inch increments. Hot selections include meatball, sausage, pastrami and a French dip, while grilled options include tomato and cheese with hummus, and the popular tuna melt. Among cold sandwiches, you'll find everything from an Italian sub to a veggie-hummus-feta option. Smoothies are large, with combos like peach mango and blueberry banana. For something more indulgent, opt for an ice cream milk shake, chiller or oversized cookie from Freshly Baked. Dave's rotating specials are just as popular as his menu mainstays, and may include pulled pork with bourbon barbecue sauce (Wednesdays); The Pilgrim, with grilled turkey, gravy, stuffing and cranberry sauce (Thursdays); or a meatball-Italian sausage combo (Fridays).

Meatball and French Dip Rock – I have tried a lot of sandwich shops and I don't know of a better one in LA. You can't go wrong at Dave's.

Best Sandwiches and WONDERFUL people. HANGOVER CURE! – It's a small place but you won't find a friendlier bunch of folks and their sandwiches are phenomenal. I'm not a real sandwich lover, but they've changed me. My fave is the french dip. I'm not a big roast beef person so they make it for me with their roast turkey. It comes on a perfectly soft french roll, provolone cheese, horseradish mayo (ask for extra cuz it's divine), and the meat is soaked in au jus first before being placed on the roll. Dave also makes a mean pulled pork sandwich that he makes at home, using sometimes Maker's Mark in his sauce. The man knows his sandwiches, and if you ask him, he'll tell you about his philosophies on 'em. I'm also a huge fan of his chili...I try to go during the year when he has the chili dog in season...sooooooo yummy! I always order for my office and they are CONSTANTLY requesting that I go by Dave's to bring it in for them. One of our guys is a vegetarian so the veggie wrap seems to make him very happy. Another thing...it's the best hangover cure I've found. A french dip sammy with a smoothie (for a hangover, I suggest the everything nice smoothie...it's jam packed with great ingredients). I stumbled in there one "morning after" and walked out feeling 95% better...it was a miracle. Thank you, DAVE and company!

Lacks cleanliness – I've heard so much about this place, that I just had to try it. My first impression when I came in was "what a dump!". there was lettuce and trimmings all over the floor and counters. there were three people fixing sandwiches, cutting ingredients and charging ... all of them doing everything, so I'm not sure the hygiene was there. I kept an open mind and ordered a tuna salad sandwich. It was average at best. I was upset at myself for not leaving the place when I noticed how dirty it was. I now wonder what happens behind closed doors. It's up to you if you decide to try it, but I would not recommend this place to anyone. To be fair, I must say that the people working were very nice and friendly ... I wish I'd been looking to make friends instead of a good sandwich!

A great sandwich place – Sandwich places seem to be more of rarity in Los Angeles these days. You could goto "Wrongway" or one of those generic chain sandwich places, but let's face it. Who really wants to eat pressed meat?

<br><br>

Dave's is the sandwich place that I have been searching for years. They use all the finest ingredients and the food tastes awesome. And as the owner Dave says he wouldn't serve anything he wouldn't eat himself. The guy is really passionate about food, and it shows. (The only bad thing is that Dave is a Patriot's fan. >= / )

I highly recommend the sausage sandwich which is served only Thursday thru Sunday. This is because the sausage is made fresh and isn't available on the other days of the week. If there's no sausage, I usually get a meatball sandwich. The meatballs are meaty and the best you find anywhere. The roast beef, french dip, pastrami are also very good.

I don't particularly like tuna but every so often I find myself craving the tuna sandwich from Dave's from time to time.

Really wish this place was closer. Eagle rock is kind of far away from everything if you know what I mean. Parking can be a bit of a hassle. There's a pay lot behind Dave's, but it's usually full. The food more than makes up for it though.

Awesome Grub and Sensational staff – I work near this tiny little sandwich shop and i have grown accustomed to their delicious food. They make many types of sandys here but my favorites are of the grilled variety. The ingredients are top notch, fresh and made with care. The smoothies and fruit drinks are delicious as well. Now that i have raved about the food let me rave about the STAFF. I went in on my lunch break the other day, in a hurry i forget to get some cash as payment (Cash Only) When i pulled out my credit card and simultaneously remebered cash only at the same time as the cashier, i expected to make a quick job down the street to get some money from an ATM. Noooooo such need. The lovely cashier told me "Get us back next time" I was shocked!! Next time?? How wonderful is that? The reason they could extend me this courtesy is because they know i will be back. They understand that the food brings repeat cumstomers. All this being said you can be sure of me getting them back (In the best way) and leaving a glowing review of my favorite sandwich shop. So dear reader, give them a shot and see for yourself. You simply cannot be dissapointed.

Dave's Chillin' and Grillin': ALWAYS a Great Decision! – Dave's is absolutely the best spot in the Los Angeles area for a sandwich or a smoothie. If you're looking for great food, fun people, and awesome service, then Dave's Chillin' and Grillin' is somewhere you should go! Parking is ample and convenient, either along the street in front or around back behind the store. When you walk in, you'll see that Dave is actually there, chillin' and grillin' like the name implies. He's a fun guy from Massachusetts who knows how to make good conversation and great food. They have an awesome autographed Family Guy Blue Harvest poster that Seth MacFarlane's crew gave them 'cause they liked their food so much! The interior is fun, and you can see your sandwich being made fresh!

Check out his tuna sandwich, loaded with veggies and with a to-die-for red pepper spread. His vegie sandwiches with hummus are great for vegetarians as well. Or if you like a bit more meat, his meatball or beef melt sandwiches pack a whole lot of food into one single sandwich. The Pilgrim is a really popular sandwich there. Think of the best post-Thanksgiving sandwich you ever made with holiday leftovers, and that's The Pilgrim.

If you're thirsty, Dave has a multitude of awesome smoothies and my personal favorite, the Chilla's! They are a tasty, blended combo of club soda and sherbet, and I recommend Lime! He doesn't always have the same sherbets, but any combo is a great combo! There's always a plain old can of Cream Soda or Coca-Cola if you think you might be too full from the sandwich, which you just might be!

So head on out to Colorado Boulevard and stop by Dave's! And go hungry!

surprisingly delicious – we were in a hurry and took a chance on this little food stand and boy were we surprised by the quality of the fresh and tasty sandwiches. We wanted vegetarian that day and we ended up with a sandwich loaded with protein {hummus I think and some kind of protein smoothie that was very good. The people there are real characters.

I take all my friends here for a reason! – In LA you have some choosey people so I bring friends to Dave's. I never have to worry because If you like roast beef or if you're vegetarian to impress that one girl, you are covered by Dave. I have found myself craving his tuna melts on many occasions. He gives you many options to customize sandwiches so I choose to have it on sourdough bread with a slice of monterey jack and provolone cheese and a healthy amount of his house hot pepper spread . He knows that I enjoy a blueberry banana bash smoothy as a chaser it's a benefit of being a regular.
