Good selection of subs in all the standard configurations. The bread is the true star here. It's the best of all the sub shops in town by far. Service is fast and friendly.

The bomb. Italian with banana peppers is so good, but their meatball is excellent as well.

Headwest has the best chicken salad sandwiches on sweetbread and be sure to add the basics.
Jim Brown via - Apr 9, 2021
Still clearly the best subs for your money. 1/4 lb of meat minimum and you can add more. Buy a headwest sub and compare to the chain store subs. Hands down Headwest subs are a bigger and better for the $. Freshed baked cookies and fudge brownies make a great desert. Think rock & roll sub shop! Oh yeah and one more thing tell them Rod ... read more

Loved the sub. Stop in for some groovy grub! They're nothin' fancy, and that's what I liked most about it. The atmosphere and food are complementary to each other. And your sub can easily be made to order. Next time I'm in the area, I'll remember this spot. Highly recommend this place ... read more

I told my brother that Subway was fine for lunch and he said "oh no." He proceeded to get subs from here. Toasted veggie sub and it was delicious! The sweet Hawaiian bread really elevated it to something special.

Food was good. Order was ready when it was supposed to be. My sandwich was not supposed to have tomato, but did have a little, like they started putting it on then remembered they weren't supposed to, but left the one slice on...

Way better than subway and a really good sandwich place.

Headwest is always a great spot for lunch. Service was friendly and quick. I highly recommend their new chicken pesto sandwhich on sweet bread w/ Jerk chicken soup. If you have room you can never go wrong grabbing one of their delicious brownies. This is the best quick bite sandwich spot in Springfield.

Top notch local sub shop chain. The sweet bread is standard because it's the best. I'm a huge fan of their pastrami and brownies as well. It's a sandwich shop so quality ingredients matter and these guys know it. They're always friendly even when they're swamped. The atmosphere is unique and if you're visiting the area you've got t ... read more

Let me start by saying I've been to this specific location probably 40 times. Out of this, I've had maybe 2 or 3 experiences that were 1-2 star with majority being 4-5 stars. Last time I went, the bread was undercooked and doughy. I had picked my lunch up from there and didn't know until I was back at work. This was a 1-star experie ... read more

Best sub sandwiches in Springfield area. Always. AC was broke last time I stopped by...the staff was undeterred. They tend to ask you want you want on your sandwich a few times...which is unwelcome but...they don't mess up your sandwich that way. Keep up the great work and I will definitely continue to patron this local small busines ... read more

I have not been happy with delivery in town lately but Head west has revived my faith in ordering out. The sandwich was piled high with meat, toasted wonderfully, crispy not crunchy. The items i did not want were left off and the add-ons were there in the right amount. Delivery was early than stated and the driver was polite and pro ... read more
