Basil's Subs prepares sandwiches using high quality meats marinated for 72hours with their signature spices. In-house made sauces accompany sandwiches with freshly baked ciabatta bread.
I've gone here twice and found this location doesn't seem to be very prepared or organized in what they offer. If I see their menu, and they listed their meats or chicken, they should either have it or do what other location, list the food choices for the day. Each time I've tried to order their mediterranean chicken and their streak, and they didn't make it, due to not having the spices or ingredients...What's with that???
I have tried their roast beef sub, and you can add any topping you would like to have, for me it was lettuce, onions and mushrooms. They do offer spinach with avacado, but it wasn't either made or available..so again they need to decide what they should offer for the day..and provide the choices that are available...I went with Dijon mustard with my cabratta bun and was made. The location doesn't have alot of seating, so be prepared to take your sub or wrap to go.
The actual sub was good, the meat on both times, had lots of flavour and everything complimented one another. The sub came on cutting board, as I think they're trying to resemble some other new sandwiches place. I was definately full on both visit, but unless they offer what's on the menu, and the owner can train her staff better, this place could be a hit.
I only wish they would have what they say and not here what's not available..they need to work on that.
I will try them one more time in the coming months, and I hope they improve soon.
Rainbowcrab and I went here with our groupon. I was very excitied to try the slow roasted lamb. I was sad to discover that they did not have the lamb at this location, but did at the Pemberton location. So I decided to try and roasted sirloin steak sandwich, and chose to have it with mayo, the spicy cilantro sauce ( Mmmm)
red and green peppers,onions and lettuce.
My sandwich was ok,, the meat was very dry. I was so disappointed by this. The sauce and bread were amazing. But that did not make up for the meat.
Rainbowcrab however had a more traditional sandwich. She had the turkey cold cut, and chose the spinich avacado spread, with a variety of veggies. She LOVED her sandwich!
Both sandwiches were huge and worth the money. We both want to go back. Yes i still want to try the lamb.
So will have to let you know how it goes.
Oh and the service was very friendly and helpful.
I live near the location on 3rd street in North Vancouver and for the past few months it hasn't been open once. However there is often private parties held and people coming and going at very late hours of the night. I question the fact that is is even a sub shop anymore... The phone number online isn't even in service when you try call it. Very strange. The subs were alright when I have eaten there in the past but often they didn't have ingredients and often the bun was dry.
Bought their groupon and went with my family this weekend to try their pulled pork sandwich and must say....Very Impressed
Have never had this kinda pulled pork sandwich for years
My Wife had Spicy Chicken and it was served with veggies and homemade pesto sauce which was delicious....
They were very busy ,I can see why..
Definitely going back next week...
We went with 2 of my friends last Friday to this location.
There seems to be a new ownership at this location with new staff
And much better food and service than before. i tried their food once before.
We decided to try their sandwiches.
We are very glad we did .. Amazing .. Amazing sandwiches, nothing like you had before.
I tried their spicy chicken wrap with coleslaw and their specialty sauce, topped with veggies
OMG what a taste , I am craving it as I am writing this review.
My friend had the polled pork sandwich on ciabatta bread.
He was just enjoying every bite..
We were also given free samples of other sandwiches
Plus they offered us all free drinks, which we never expected.
We are going back with more friends next week.
And I will take some pictures and do another review.
Went to Basil's to use a Groupon (2 sandwiches,pops,chips). Free street parking.
This has got to be one of the best sandwiches I have eaten in a long time. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich. You get to watch them prepare it in front of you. Fresh ciabatta bread toasted and sliced, loaded with pulled pork, real cheese and coleslaw. You can choose your in-house made sauces (quite a few to pick) to complete the sandwich. Just the sandwich would have been filling enough even without the chips and pop.
Staff were nice and it seems the owner is onsite all the time.
Great sandwich, good value, and good staff. Seating is limited so maybe aim for after lunch.
Will definitely add to the lunch rotation.
