OUR PICKS

1)   Star Provisions

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.”

Grouchy’s NY Deli in Norcross has incredible NY and Northeast sandwichs. Their Philly’s are incredible, and their breakfast is awesome! Go see Simon, he’ll take care of you.

Firehouse, hands down. The steamer just melts in your mouth.

And you can NOT forget about the selection of hot sauce. Mandatory on any good sandwich.

Firehouse Italian sub. The one right off of tech’s campus. All the subs are normal; the Italian is something special.

Oh you poor people. First of all, a sandwich is a sandwich and a sub is a submarine. Then we can break it down between chain and mom & pop. For a chain, Jersey Mike’s and Jimmy Johns are decent. Not too great but ok for a quick bit during work hour lunch and you dont want to drive too far. Oh and let me say this, if you put mustard or mayo on a sub, you are an idiot and have no business posting about sub’s. A real sub only requires olive oil. PERIOD. If you have ever been to Amato’s in Maine (inventor of the submarine sandwich) then you know what I am talking about. And if you like your sub hot…it is not a sub. Who knows what the hell it is then. Sandwiches…Goldbergs and NY deli are good. Nothing else in town is really that good. Maybe some Asian places, etc. Alons, not so good anymore. They were ok. At the end of the day though, my own fried baloney sandwich with Ramen noodles on a cold winter day ROCKS!

Lenny’s Subs..various locations but have tried Windward and Cumming locations. Meats are sliced to order and their red relish is awesome on them.

Publix by far – at least u know what ur getting.. Blimpies and subway serve you bottom of the shoe, over processed, wanna be meat. The other places are overpriced for the bottom shelf meat, dried tomatoes n wilted lettuce. You have to try Publix (w/boarshead) roastbeef w/crumbled bleu cheese… yummy… Other than publix and occasionally Jason’s Deli, I have’nt really found a good sandwich since relocating from NY 20+ yrs ago…

National chains? I don’t get it. Whatever!

Great sammies at Cafe at Pharr in Buckhead – excellent chicken salad and the homemade bread is killer.

Havana’s cubans were great — so sorry the restaurant burned down.

My vote would be Baldini’s in Doraville, Publix, and Jersey Mike’s. All provide the closest South Jersey/Philadelphia quality in the Atlanta Metro area.

What say you?

On a good night you can usually pick up a good sandwich at the bar in Brookwood Grill in Roswell.You have to make sure the bread is good and drunk and they know each other..

Midway’s (in East Atlanta Village) Reuben is heaven. The twist is it’s an absolute monster of a sandwich.

Baldino’s giant Jersey subs on Buford Highway right off the outside 285 exit. Great bread and a really big sandwich! Publix has a good sandwich if the bread is fresh.

New Yorker Deli on S. Atlanta Rd in Smyrna is the best around.

To those of you who think Publix, Subway, Firehouse or any of the other chains has good sandwiches please expand your horizons!
