However, I think all most of us are saying, I know I am at least, is that the places we're recommending are worth a break in your criteria because the food is so great. You can like what you like, and you have Subway and Panera to fulfill everything you need, but if you want to get a high quality sandwich it's safe to say that Subway and Panera aren't it.
Subway is in my rotation. Like I said in the original post, it's just kind of hard to believe it's the only place in all of SF that fits what I like in a restaurant.

In the South people drink iced tea when it's hot out because it's refreshing. It's not a big thing in California because it's not the South, and it never gets hot enough in SF for iced tea to be refreshing.

In any case this is kind of a silly topic and you are being confrontational and obnoxious towards everyone here. And Subway is garbage, their ingredients are like plastic and I've gotten sick eating there before.

Well, everything can't be everywhere.

However, I am still playing, and without that parameter, we're talking hands down, you must be talking about Yellow Submarine corner of 6th and Irving on Irving.

Ask for the chicken sandwich (with onions) ancient family recipe, and no she will not tell you what all the spices are but it is awesome.

My husband and I are both former East Coasters ranging from grinder/hoagie/sub territory of Boston/Philly/NYC and we love this place.

Those two have become my go-to places for sandwiches, and both fit for numbers 1, 2, and 5, possibly 3, but not 4. Sorry.
I cosign these (actually I mentioned both of them already ). I haven't tried Bite yet (I need to give it a shot tho!), but the other two are definitely worth checking out, even if they don't fit all of your criteria.

As for finding you a perfect fit, I think Boudins will be your best bet. I believe they have free refills, and the sandwiches aren't bad at all. Not what I would call the best SF has to offer, but decent and should fit what you're seeking.

LMFAO!! Did andy the mentally challenged troll just now suggest that DC has WAY better Mexican food than SF??? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Yeah, and Arizona has better chowder and Maine lobster rolls than New England!

Man, I never really thought Texas sucked so bad until I saw how desperately this fool tries to boost it over SF at EVERY angle LOL. I guess it really doesn't offer enough to stand on its own without having this complete imbecile throw out endless lies and exaggerations in order to make it sound like Heaven on Earth and make SF out to have no value whatsoever. How freakin lame lol!

I notice his SF attacks come in spurts whenever the weather is particularly cold/gloomy, like a woman on her rag lol.

I think what's going on is at a lot of places the big tea thing is "Sweet Tea" -- which is, well -- a sugary drink. I drink iced tea all the time when we go out (I'm diabetic and don't drink soda) and lately friends have been reminding me that "some of those teas" have as much sugar as soda.

It's like plain old fashioned iced tea doesn't exist anymore, everything is Sweet Tea.

Luckily servers haven't started automatically reaching for sweet tea when I ask for iced tea.

I see you are finally realizing how sad and gloomy the weather is. That's a big step for you in becoming more honest. In any case, this is for the RECORD. I absolutely loathe the eff*ing weather in SF and so does everybody else except for suburban bridge and tunnel trolls like you!

LOL! I think you need a hand saw or something to cut the Boudin bread. Their bread should be banned for human consumption.

edit: Almost forgot to mention that I too strongly recommend that super-delicious chicken sandwich with onions at Yellow Sub - listen to Bellalunatic on that one b/c its excellent! I suggest eating it while its still warm though; reheated its not nearly as good, although if you try it reheated your first time it will still seem very good.

And Millers is great for pastrami on rye, hot dogs (they have this one with cole slaw and grilled bologna that's excellent!), and a ton of other great stuff they have on their menu. Both places are awesome. Man, I think I'm gonna have to hit up one of them tomorrow now that I think about it lol!
