There’s really no need to introduce the subject matter of this post, is there? Put some meat, cheese, condiments and perhaps wild extras in between two slices of bread and there you have a sandwich. But for food or just plain sub lovers, it’s really an artform, isn’t it? And learning this tasty past-time ~ not too unpleasant. So stomachs: Start your engines, taste buds: Start the salivating, and lunchtime: Hurry up already.
Here are just a few Sacramento-area sub shop favorites. Got any faves of your own not mentioned here? Share the love and let us in on the flavor revelations!
Roxie Deli & Grocery – Upside: Hearty and addictive sandwiches with lots of vegetarian options and noteworthy sides. Downside: The place has an odd smell, but you can’t eat inside anyway (so does that make it an upside?). 3340 C St, East Sacramento, (916) 443-5402
Corti Bros. – Upside: Very high quality (and piled high) meats and cheeses; a sandwich called the Italian (fennel salami and red pesto – woah). Downside: Pricey. 5810 Folsom Blvd, East Sacramento, (916) 736-3800
Dad’s – Upside: Creative hot and cold subs with fun names, old-school cooler of eclectic pop, patio dining, parking. Downside: Complaints that the portions aren’t big enough. 1310 S St, Downtown, (916) 448-3237
Sampino’s – Upside: Authentic Italian deli with bliss-inducing meatball sub, great Italian breads and soups. Downside: Sandwiches can range from “overeager” to “boring”, but it’s all in the taste buds of the beholder, right? 1607 F St, Downtown, (916) 441-2372
Honorable Mention: Beach Hut – Upside: Beachy-themed decor with friendly staff, fresh, sassy sammies and grass-skirted umbrellas. Downside: Pricey for such a “hang loose”-styled joint. 2406 J St, Midtown (+ various locations), (916) 442-1400
