Another HUGE banh mi, Lily's version is nearly a foot long -- and only $3.75 -- so you can imagine the wait at lunchtime. But the line is well worth it, since they bake the bread that morning, and it's hot when you bite into it. The savory BBQ Pork variety has caused my eyes to roll back in my head more than once.
Some of the Best Vietnamese Sandwhiches! – I really enjoy going to Lily's Sandwich. To me, the food is very delicious at a really good price. The porportions are just right. Not to much and not to little. Out of all the sandwiches my favorite are tge Xa Ciu Seasoning Sandwich and the BBQ pork Sandwhich. I've tried several of the other dishes and they are fantastic. I do not get to east as much Vietnamese food as I want but the area is great. I am able to get a quick bite and do some shopping at the same time.
I've read some of the previous reviews on here especially one about health hazards. I usually go there once a week at different times during the day and I have not seen any bugs that would worry me about what I am heating. It is a small shop and they have an open bar for sandwhich making like Quiznos and Subways. I expect to see a fly or two because it is a resturant and food is out. But I have not had any encounters where there was a swarm of Flys or even roaches.
What I really love about the place is that the staff remembers me always. I always get a warm smile and a greeting! Even with the communication barrier, I've always had great service. My food is fresh and made to order. The people are very kind.
Tiny Vietnamese sandwich shop makes for a fast lunch after shopping in the bustling Chinatown Center. – In Short
Tucked into this massive Asian strip center, Lily's Sandwiches offers inexpensive lunches and authentic Vietnamese menu items. This casual café specializes in banh mi, or Vietnamese sandwiches, a mix of pickled vegetables and a variety of meats like BBQ pork, chicken or seasoned meatballs on a baguette. Other menu favorites include shrimp and pork spring rolls, chef special beef stew and vermicelli bowls. There is no pho soup served. Wash your wallet-friendly meal down with a glass of iced coffee with condensed milk or a fresh avocado smoothie.
