Sandwiches by Connal’s
1505 E Washington Blvd
Pasadena, CA 91104
Sandwiches by Connal’s has been in Pasadena since 1958! I'm not sure if this is the original location. 1958 is the same year that that bastard water o'malley STOLE the BROOKLYN DODGERS from their rightful home and they played their first season in LA. Connal's opened up a location in Upland in late 2007, that David Allen reviewed. The Upland location is across the street from San Biagio's Pizza, maybe the best New York style pizza in the Inland Empire!
It looks like a take out place but there is a dining area on the east side of the building. It was very busy with walk up and people calling in their orders!
2 piece fish and chips, $4.34 with tax, on the mini meal menu. They use pollock and it's just frozen fish that is deep fried. The batter is very tough and hard. I would say it is about 75% fish and 25% batter. I know this is a burgers/sandwich place but I wanted to try the fish and chips. The fries are frozen but much better than the fish. This isn't a good example but a good meal for a good price.
Service is good. This is cash only, and I wish they had a sign for any newcomers. But, the food comes out quickly. There is one confusing thing. There is a window along the sidewalk where people can order and pick up their food. But, if you go inside to their dining area, there is also a place to order, when I was there the same cashier was taking orders outside and inside.
I would go back to Connal’s to try their sandwiches, but not the fish and chips!
