Rhea’s more closely resembles a convenience store than a sandwich shop, and you could walk out of here with just a few jerky sticks and some lotto scratchers, but you’d be missing the sandwiches in the back. The sandwich options are printed on sheets of computer paper taped to a fridge and have names like the Wonder Woman with jerk chicken or the North Beach St. with turkey and salami. We like the Barney Rubble with pastrami, swiss, avocado, and 50 other things served on an Acme roll. Fill out your ticket at the front, pay, and wait for your name to be called before eating at the window or walking back to eat in the grass at Dolores on a nice weekend.
