Cheap Eats: Lee's Sandwiches
Some of you might be familiar with Lee's sandwiches. It's a chain of Vietnamese Sandwich shops around San Gabriel and Westminster. If you're not familiar with Lee's Sandwiches, you might be wondering: "What's so special about Vietnamese sandwiches, and how is it worthy of a 50meal?" Well, first of all, a 10-inch sandwich is dirt cheap at somewhere between $2 to $3. Secondly, these sandwiches are GOOD. Hey, cheap and good? Definitely worth a meal. Unfortunately the location I went to had no seating, so you'll have to take these sandwiches to go. I didn't get far, though, we grabbed these and started eating in the car.
The food is grab n' go, so I can't comment on the service. Sandwiches do come out pretty quick and so did the drinks, so no complaints there at all.
