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.”

I agree with Marty, Jeff, Brandy, Dale & the Reuben Fanatic. Hands down, the Reuben at Howard’s Deli on Concord Road in Smyrna is the best! I can’t comment about their other sandwiches because I’ve never had one other than the Reuben–why mess up a good thing?

In reference to Bud. I know all sandwiches are toasted unless specified. I think if you try it again and be a little more specific to what you would like. There are 4 people on the line to check and recheck the orders. I think 7.00 for an overstuffed hot sandwich, chip and a drink is a very nice value. I think if you tried it again, you will see what all the fuss is about. The breads what they are. Baked fresh toasted to order, fresh cut meats daily, all veggies are made daily. Its a win win across the board.

Joey D’s Oak Room on Crown Pointe next to Perimeter Mall is outstanding. The deli meats are from The New York Deli in New York and the other sandwiches are both delicious and imginative. The bar rises to the ceilng and is very extensive and the atmospere is terrific.

since there is no chivito in atlanta, this entire category is moot.

Best corned beef sandwich in town is Joey D’s in Perimeter Mall area. The corned beef come from NYC along with the rye bread. No other joint in Atlanta can say this. As I remember, there are two sizes…………regular and mile high.

Subway? Publix? You people need to get out of town! Those are adequate at best, esp. those miserable Subway subs.

Get on a plane, fly to NY, sit down in Carnegie Deli and you’ll cry at what you’ve been missing out on. Even a halfway decent NY deli beats anything in this miserable backwater.

For BBQ its OLD SOUTH BBQ in Smyrna,Ga hands down. I been eating BBQ there since 69 when it opened, just ask for Joy the owner. And dont forget Joey D’s Oak room by perimeter mall, the corned beef sandwich they serve will not be duplicated anywhere.

Publix does have a good sandwich, I had a roast beef W/jalapenos while visiting the in-laws in Marietta & it was quite good. If you want a killer pastrami sandwich try Togo’s, I think theres one in Lilburn, GA.

Publix is consistent, but Spezzano’s in Tyrone makes the best sub on the southside.

The quality of food in atlanta is a joke! In New York, you have places on every corner that are better than the “best” in atlanta. Down here in redneckville, Subway is considered a good sandwich! LOL!!! I miss New York’s delis, especially Carnegie, Katz and 2nd Avenue. I’m getting tired of living down here and may move back next year when the economy improves up there.

Gruby’s New York Deli on Johnsons Ferry near Glenridge Connector.

I have never had anything bad there. Their New York Reuben is a thing of beauty and their patty melts are awesome. Plus they have a great brisket sandwich that really hits the spot. The portions are huge and the breads are fresh and soft. They also have good customer service.

yeah I never could understand why GA in particular has such a poor food, hmmm maybe its cause this state started as a prison colony. BTW the best mexican food is taco bell. I’m from here so don’t tell me to back where I came from, I’m already here. And don’t tell me your local one in a million- itp -hole in the wall -bs -not that great -over priced place that I haven’t tried yet. I have never, ever ever been impressed at any meal regardless of price in this city.
