On Saturday, July 18, I went to the Submarina sandwich shop on Otay Lakes Road, near the intersection of East H Street, and discovered that the shop had been closed permanently. A handwritten sign posted on the door read, "Due to poor economic times Submarina has closed at this location." The sign goes on to thank their patrons.
This Submarina closing follows the failure of the two other Submarinas in Chula Vista over the past year.
Submarina is not the only Chula Vista restaurant that’s closed during the past year. The sandwich shop joined the list that includes: Gandolfo’s Deli, Pei Wei (owned by P.F. Chang’s), Trophy’s (in the newer Village Walk at Eastlake), Carino’s Italian restaurant on Otay Lakes Road, Noodles & Co on the corner of Eastlake Parkway, and Otay Lakes Road.
