Like a Conehead inhaling Subway, you'll love these greasy, big, hunger-satiating sandwiches with East Coast flair and Asian influences from teriyaki and bento.
A classic, old-school, very east-coast-y sandwich shop, tucked just off NE Broadway. Nothing fancy here, just big subs and bento done right.
I love a tickler – The tickler is fantastic. I have been getting sandwiches from here for over 10 years. Although ownership has changes the product stays consistant and delcious. I have only gotten one bad order from there they quickly corrected the mistake and kept me vary satisfied. I can't wait to get one tomarow
The Closest Thing to WaWa in Portland – I had a sandwich from the Taste Tickler about a year ago and wasn't terribly impressed. The sandwich was mostly bread, the bread was a little dry and the overall taste of the sandwich was notably lackluster. Through a series of strange circumstances I found myself at The Tickler today picking up a couple 14" Italian subs. Wow, what a turnaround! These subs had great toppings, great veggies, great meat and their bread was the closest thing I've found in Portland to the Italian bread used in the hoagie shops in Philly and the WaWa convenience stores on the east coast; a chewy outer crust and nice spongy body. For those of you that are familiar with WaWa and are looking for a place to satisfy your craving for one of their sandwiches, this is the closest you're going to get in the Portland area.
Best Sandwiches in Portland!!! – Best Sandwiches in Portland hands down. Whoever wrote the review about Taste Tickler's chicken teryaki sub being gross and soggy must have more screws loose than the crazy facist Subway Lady that works across the street. Not only is the chicken teryaki sub DELICIOUS and not soggy, all their sandwiches now come in 3 sizes if you think you can handle the 14". Best subshop ever, If you go to the Tickler you'll start waking up with cravings for their subs, that's how good they are, 5 STARS for the best sandwich place in Portland... And as for that crazy Subway Lady- she doesn't even deserve a star...
subpar subs – I tried their famous chicken teryaki sub. Yuck. The bread was tough and chewy. There was not enough meat, and the toppings were lackluster, soggy lettuce and tomatoes. The flavor of the whole thing sucked too. It was mostly like eating a chewy gross loaf of bread. Maybe their other subs are better......
AN OLD FRIEND! – Eating at the Taste Tickler is like visiting an old friend. We have been going there since the 70s...several owners back, yet it retains the same good quality and friendly service that make it a must once a week. Before there was a Subway, there was the Tickler. It's fun to see it still in the same place even though the neighborhood has gone through some major transformations. I hope they will be there 30 years from now!
eat here – best bento and sandwiches in town, and nice folks also! always quick and consistent. The famous tickler and yakisoba are recommended.
Best Sandwiches in Portland – I go here for lunch at least weekly, and I am never dissapointed by the food. I have tried several different sandwiches and they have all been delicious. Especially noteworthy are the "Famous Ticklers" and the BBQ Chicken Sub. If you like sub sandwiches even a little bit, you should definately give this place a try.
Killer Chicken Terriyaki Sandwich – Prices are absolutely amazing and the sandwiches are totally customizable. I love the Chicken Terriyaki sandwich, by far one of the greatest sandwiches I've ever had, and the smallest size is 7 inches! Can't go wrong paying $4.50 for a 7 inch sub!!
Taste Tickler was yummy! – I had the bento and it was yummy! It's a tiny little hidden place, but it's sure good. The bento had lots of meat and salad and was definitely good for it's price. I suggest going here for a quick lunch.
