Sierra Subs and Salads is located in the heart of Three Rivers, California just outside of Sequoia National Park in the Southern Sierra Nevada. It is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Dane and Allison Millner, who purchased the business in 2009. Their business has grown quickly to become a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
With an array of options, both healthy and delicious, they offer fast, fresh food that tastes great and is made from a plant not from a can. They strive to keep their ingredients pure and make all of the sauces, salsas, soups, side salads and vinaigrettes from scratch. With unique paninis, salads, wraps, quesadillas, burgers and lots of vegetarian options there’s sure to be something for everyone.
Serving up great food for hungry travelers wasn’t always what they’d envisioned for their future. “We were both ready for a change in our lives, and this just seemed like the right choice for us," says Dane, who relocated after 20 years in San Diego. For Allison, moving to Three Rivers was coming home, “I was ready to be back in the mountains, back near my family and working on something that we both could enjoy. We both have a love for great food and getting to share our passion is the icing on the cake!”
The dedication to their food is evident with the ever-changing weekly specials, wild creations and abundant vegetarian options. “Being a life long vegetarian prompted me to expand that part of the menu and offer good, flavorful vegetarian food,” explains Allison. “We are lucky to be able to pick herbs, peppers, arugula and vine ripe tomatoes in the summer from the family garden. It makes our creations taste that much better," includes Dane.
Whether you're visiting for a day or able to enjoy the area for a week you will always be able to find great food, made with a smile at Sierra Subs and Salads. Their food makes the perfect lunch to take up to the park or sit at the picnic tables alongside the Kaweah River. “We both have a love for great food,” Allison adds, “and hope that you'll share our passion when you taste our creations."
