Lee's Sandwiches


It all started with a food truck… and the vision of Ba Van Le and Hanh Nguyen to bring Banh Mi to California in 1983. Their traditional Vietnamese sandwiches became instantly popular along their San Jose route, leading to rapid expansion that evolved into Lee's Sandwiches. From its modest beginnings to its position today as the world’s largest Banh Mi chain, the Lee’s brand continues to grow propelled by an emphasis on delicious food and family collaboration.

Ask us any questions!

What is Banh Mi

"Banh Mi (bän mē or bon mee) is a delicious Vietnamese sandwich consisting of a baguette made from whole wheat white flour, filled with fearlessly authentic meats such as pork, chicken, and pate. Finished with pickled vegetables, onions, jalapeño peppers and cilantro."

What choices of breads do you have to pick from?

"Currently you can choose from our famous baguettes or our oversized croissants. Wheat bread is on her way!"

What condiments come in a Banh Mi

"pickled daikons (a mild flavor radish),pickled carrots, cucumber onions, jalapeño peppers, cilantro, and a dash of soy sauce "

What is the original Banh Mi

"The godfather of banh mi's would be Lee's Combination Thit Nguoi ,which has pate, house mayo, jambon, headcheese, cucumber, Lee's house pickles, onions, jalapenos, cilantro, and soy sauce"

What is Pate

"a spreadable paste made out of pork liver and ground pork"

What is Headcheese

"Headcheese is cold cut made from different parts of the cow's head and seasoned with spices"

What is Jambon

"a French style ham that is slowly cooked in its own juice, and wrapped in its skin. Tasty!"

What is Pork Roll

""Vietnamese pork roll" aka as cha lua, is the most common type of sausage in Vietnamese cuisine, made of pork and traditionally wrapped in banana leaves. chả lụa is made of lean pork, potato starch, garlic, ground black pepper and nước mắm (fish sauce)"

What is Lee's Pickled Veggies

"Lee's pickled veggies is a mixture of daikons and carrots marinated in salt, sugar, and vinegar"

How big are your sandwiches

"10 inches long."

Your Coffee is insane! What's in it?

"We'd tell you but the recipe is locked in a vault"

How is your grilled chicken/ga nuong made?

"Our grilled chicken is marinated in our Lee's special blend of spices and cooked on our charcoal grill. Our grilled chicken will make your taste buds dance!"

What's better grilled pork or BBQ pork?

"Ohhhh this is always a hard question. The grilled pork always reminds me of my mom's cooking. Waking up to the smell of sizzling garlic and laughter in the kitchen... But the tangy sweetness of the BBQ pork is to die for too! I don't know just get both : ) "

What is in "The Works" sandwich?

"Leave it up to the hungry man to create a sandwich! Yup Thang was starving and decided to put all his favorites in a sandwich. And there you have it "The Works (spam ,eggs, BBQ pork, pate, house mayo, pork roll ,pickled veggies, cucumber, jalapenos, onions, and cilantro. "

Is your steak sandwich like a Philly cheese steak?

"Hmmm... Not really. Our steak is more like the traditional shaking beef dish marinated with garlic, shallots, spices, and soy sauce. Then cooked to order. Seriously? I love our steak sandwich!"

What is your most popular sandwiches?

"Ok lets narrow this down. First I'd ask," Banh Mi or Euro sandwich?" Our most popular banh mi would be the Lee's combination if you'd like a tasty cold cut, or grilled chicken, grilled pork and definitely can't go wrong with BBQ pork. Now the Euro, I'm a meat eater so the Lee's club stacked with roast beef, turkey, and ham on a croissant is BOMB! Or our steak a mix-breed of Asian flavors and of course who can go wrong with a simple turkey/ham and cheese sandwich. "

What choices to you have for vegans, vegetarians and pescetarian?

"We have plenty of vegan dishes and more to come."
