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.”

First place goes to the po boy at Goldberg’s Deli on Roswell Road
Second place goes to Houston’s fish sandwich (You’ll think you’ve died and gone to Appalachacola)

Oh yea – Third place to the cheese steak at the Mad Italian. I remember meeting my wife at the mad italian on Peachtree after work, then picking up an album from Peaches Records & Tapes across the street, then hurrying down to the Omni to get cheap general admission seats for a Hawks game.

After being away from Atlanta for 3 years, when I moved back my daughter took me out for lunch to Roasters. I had a FRIED Chicken sandwich with all their trimmings. I swear the chicken hung out around the bread a half inch. The best Chicken sandwich I ever ate.

Also there is a new little sandwich/coffee shop just off Dresden Road on Caldwell Road near the food store “Mom and Pops” food store. It is called “The Library”. I had a chicken salad they served it on grilled (toasted) wheat berry bread. Absolute delicious. I have been back a couple of times and had the same sandwich. Nice place, with outside seating and people bring their laptops and have coffee and sandwiches.

How about the sandwiches from the new QT kitchens..or Hardee’s attempt to put bologna back on our mind’s via their fried bologna biscuit?? On a serious note for a quick sandwich on the go..QT’s sandwich variety is good..especially my favorite..THE TRIPLE-STACK SANDWICH

Definitely Woody’s on Monroe. When I lived in Atlanta and worked downtown my wife would stop by Woody’s and grab two philly’s, pick me up at the office and we’d head to the Ballpark to catch a game.

Any mention of St. Charles Deli on N. Druid Hills? Is it still open? Haven’t lived there since 2002.

Amazing. First politics, then sports. Even a blog about sandwiches on results in insults and name calling.

I went to this place at the forum, and I was impressed. Which Wich, had about everything I could want in a sandwich shoppe, and they had a killer homemade banana/strawberry shake. Check it

Enter your comments here Wildflour on Windward Pkwy, just east of GA 400 in Alpharetta is OUTSTANDING! You can’t beat the creations of Michael Fields! The sandwiches, made on his delicious homemade bread, are awesome! And don’t forget the delicious sides and then bakery treats for dessert!

Stan’s on North Avenue completely ruled! And the sliced pork sandwich at the Old Hickory House. Whatever happened to OHH? Been gone from Atlanta a long time. Live in Jersey now – not so impressed with Jersey Mike’s. We have other way better mom-and-pop sub places here. Disappointed by all the chain store sandwiches on this list. Except the pimiento cheese from the Varsity – to die for. We have NOTHING like that here. PS – can’t believe the Mellow Mushroom is still around. Is it the same one for like the last 40 years, or a different one?

The old Deli was Al’s Deli- Cumming, Georgia. The new Deli, by the same owner, is Cosmic Deli and I know there are Thousands that are drooling at the grand opening on Windward Parkway. All the same stuff you loved, and MORE! I can’t wait!

Sandwiches are so broad a subject…pizza is halfway to being a sandwich (or all the way, if you hit Everybody’s).

So, I’ll limit myself to cold cuts (plain or grilled), and count my vote for Wright Gourmet Shoppe (Dunwoody), and take a slice of cake home for dessert in the evening.

Wrt Publix: if you find a good one, they’ll put anything behind the deli counter on a sandwich. This is high-grade sandwich power, folks; just don’t exercise it when there’s a line, thanks.

watch out Billy Joe Bob– All those sandwich places -you will look like me when you are 63–I like a good grilled cheese–use real butter and good bread multigrain –and sharp cheddar and provolone one slice each but bread has to be thicker than air or it will get messey–mustard and pickel on the side–leave the cold cuts out–they kill my gut !!

R.I.P Havana Sandwich Shop on Buford, best cuban in ATL

also, shout out to Fifth Earl’s in Decatur. A little expensive, but heavenly nonetheless.

Philly Connection, anyone?

Best in ATL are: Henris in Buckhead, Wright’s Deli in Dunwoody, Baldinos on Buford Hwy in Doraville, Publix usually as their ingredients are always very fresh…and of course do the Boar’s Head. The worst is Subway by FAR. Pre-cut & weighed processed meats just sitting there all day congealing in that wet paper AND then put into that odd shaped/cut bread of theirs makes it impossible to pack on the other stuff & eat. Gross all around…and Blimpie “used” to be great when they’d cut it in front of you…Now they go the Subway route with weighing & it’s pre-cut. Pure nastiness…imho.

Alon’s Bakery’s Roasted Lamb Sandwich
Enoteca Carbonari’s Prosciutto and Buffalo mozzarella Panini or Chk Salad panini
Star Provisions fish sandwich’s

Publix for sure and most are right, you don’t need to add boars head meat, theirs is plenty good.

Enter your comments here Roy’s Cheesesteaks off South Cobb Drive. Best hoagies and cheesesteaks in Atl. hands down. It’s all about the bread. They use Amarosos rolls shipped down from Philly. The amount of meat is twice as much as Philly Connection . Not even close.
