The long anticipated Lee's Sandwiches made its glorious debut in the University Town Center to a welcoming population of sleep-deprived and pennywise students; that's because Lee's is open 24 hours a day and the majority of the sandwiches are under $2.
The speedy service is reminiscent of an In-n-Out, except the order numbers are announced via a pre-recorded message and displayed on an LCD screen. These Vietnamese-style sandwiches are served on fresh, petite baguettes, and if you aren't familiar with this type of cuisine, forget the lettuce and tomatoes: these sandwiches come with a mixture of julianned and sweetened vegetables that works well with the savory meat, and for a price that is under $2, it's worth it to try at least once. Who knows? You might just get hooked.
My only complaint would be that they pretty much skimp you on the meat, at least in the Vietnamese-style sandwiches. If you're a big eater, you might find yourself ordering two, which definitely isn't going to break your bank.
But Lee's also offers noticeably larger "European-Style" sandwiches; these would be the lettuce-and-tomato type of sandwiches that we are used to here in the states. They come with a pickle, the choice of a croissant or baguette, and are a still a steal of a deal for the sub-$4 price.
This particular Lee's also offers a rich, creamy, gelato type of ice cream, coconut waffles, patio-dining, two flat screen TVs (no sound), and internet access.
