Dining critic Meridith Ford Goldman says, “Take me to Paris, and what do I want? Well, besides shoes? A ham, butter and cheese sandwich on a baquette, bought from a street vender. I can get a similance of this Francophile sammie at Star Provisions, with Parm and prosciutto and butter on one of the provender’s Parisian-style baquettes.”

One more nomination here … The egg salad sandwiches on toast at Weekend Cafe (downtown on Park Place) are perfect. The filling is decadently creamy, the lettuce is crisp, and the eggs are chopped just right — not pulverized into mush. I usually add jalepenos, olives, mustard, etc., to a typical egg salad sandwich, but their version doesn’t need a thing.

There used to be a Dagwood’s in Suwanee and one in Kennesaw. The one in Suwanee closed, and I believe the one in Kennesaw did, as well. It’s Dagwood’s Sandwich Shoppe, not the Dagwood’s Pizza and Subs. Anyway, their sandwiches were ALL amazing, though it was a bit pricy. But those are still the best sandwiches ever. After that, I really like Mellow Mushroom’s capri sandwich.

The NEW YORKER for the REUBEN! But THE OFFICIAL MELANIE OUDIN FAN CLUB WEBSITE is MelanieOudinFANCLUB.COM for sure, for sure. Soon her world-wide fans can post Melanie-photos, Melanie-wishes, Melanie-news and Melanie-gossip! (so cool) As the Beatles would say: “Well, she was just seventeen, you know what I mean, and the way she looked was way beyond compare! Wimbledon, and U.S. Open, oooh, she is incredible for so young!” Maybe the hottest young player since Tracey Austin? But maybe not so delicious-looking as you, but on the court, Ana, better watch out! : )

The best sandwich in metro Atlanta is a little bit of a drive, but worth it! The Daily Neighborhood Deli near Athens (Hwy 78, 1 mile west of Hwy 316) has the best sandwiches I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve been eating lots of sandwiches for years). In house made bread, fresh ingredients, and made to order. I’ve not found a better place in years! I stop and eat there whenever I’m near.

I agree with Alex. Elliot Street Pub in Castlberry Hill and Reuben’s in Fairly Poplar. Those of you suggesting chain subs must live in the burbs. Subway? Quiznos? Publix? Those are utility subs to fill your belly, no character.

baldinos Giant Jersey Subs are by far the best subs ever! I had my first outside Ft Stewart, GA in the 80’s and I was hooked. When they came to Atlanta in the early 90’s I thought I had died and gone to heaven. My favorite is the Italian, Xtra Xtra vinegar and oil, with lite hot peppers.

It’s kinda sad to see that we have to rely on corporate/franchise restaurants for “best of” lists. They have their place, but we just don’t have enough mom & pop lunch places in the ATL. No wonder northerners always talk about food when they run into other “yankees” here in Atlanta. They really know what they’re missing when it comes to take out food.

Reuben’s on Broad Street is fantastic! Best Reuben around, plus they have (at least they did) birch beer, which you can’t find anywhere anymore.

For a great vegetarian sandwich on wheat, I love World Peace in Sandy Springs (across from Whole Foods). They get their bread from the BreadGarden bakery on Amsterdam Ave. in Va. Highlands.

Enter your comments here It’s been gone for many many years but I used to love a ham & swiss on pumpernickle with mayo and cold slaw from the “Snack Shack” in downtown Atlanta on Pryor Street. It was about 3 blocks from the Fulton County Courthouse. The bread was always fresh, the meats were piled high and the price was reasonable.

Publix subs on multi grain bread are the best. The bread alone can make or break a sandwich. Just because it’s not $12 for a sandwich doesn’t mean it’s not good. Just like the $100 bottle of wine is not always better than the $10 bottle. Yuppie girlie girl midtowners don’t understand this concept however and probably never will.

Enter your comments here: Reuben’s Deli in the Fairlie Poplar District Downtown / Broad Street near Equitable Bldg. and 5 points Marta. Get the Godfather and be prepared to have to take 1/2 of it home. And don’t forget to get one of their plate-sized chocolate chip cookies. I swear they have crack in them they are so addicting.

Eatzi come back to me dear. “Eatzi!” A real man love the roasted peppers and sprouts on the sandwhich!

Oh Lordy!

Publix put Mayo on Everything! No thanks!

I come down south and buy a sandwhich on the go from publix. A steak and cheese. The person puts mayo after I asked them not to.

“You can enjoy a lot of sandwhiches without Mayo!”

Has anyone ever had tunafish sandwhich without mayo. “Try mustard, relish, picante, hot peppers etc!” Everybody don’t eat that crap.
