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.”

Best “SUB” sandwiches are Jersey Mike’s, Publix Subs, and Firehouse

how about something else?

Best CALZONES: Mellow Mushroom (Pepperoni, Beef, Feta Cheese w/Esparanza dressing and red sauce on the side)

Best PIZZA: Mellow Mushroom

Reccomend some other places for Calzones, Sandwiches, and Pizza, I’d love to try something different

Obviously this is one of Atlanta biggest shortcomings. There are no sandwich places in this town. There should be so many more for a city this big. For Publix and Jersey Mikes to do so well pretty much says it all. This is definately a niche in the market that a good entrepreneur should target.
Publix rolls are the key to their success…Its called a hard roll. Does anybody down here know what that is? How about a good deli? There arent many.

Miss Eatzi’s Bone Bread sandwiches but one of them made me sick as a dog about 3 or 4 months before they closed their doors – don’t sleep on Publix’ subs – they do a super job – best kept sandwich secret in town and you dont have to opt for Boar’s Head – their chicken salad sub is sublime – forget about getting a decent pastrami on rye in Atlanta – aint gonna happen – absolute best subs in town, though, are at Baldino’s

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!

The other places are overpriced for the bottom shelf meat, dried tomatoes n wilted lettuce.

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.

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.

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.

Philly Connection, anyone?

Biff Blabney

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.

Good to see that Edgewood Adam is still lurking around, waiting to pounce with his snobby intown attitude whenever he can. He gives the rest of us intowners a bad name.

My vote goes to Havana Sandwich Shop’s Cuban, RIP.

Also, Publix does make excellent subs, if you get it with the Boar’s Head meat, no matter what the ignorant little elitists roaming around here think they know.

Swallow at the Hollow makes great sandwiches, too, but they are not subs.

Vortex is great. Woody’s is good, but too expensive for what you get.

Oh yes, and there is always at least one New Yorker who checks in to tell us that “Atlanta doesn’t have any good… (insert item here; pizza, subs, whatever). What we do have is lots of New Yorkers who have moved here and opened up restaurants, so Woody, come out of your hole and actually take a look around. You’ll find that New York is not the only city on Earth after all!

And I will agree, though they are far from the best, a Boars Head sub from Publix will do in a pinch. They can be great or awful depending on the bread that day and the freshness of the toppings.

OK……..I got impatient…….I now see that there were quite a few Havana fans, and I also see that the restaurant burned down. I also saw a comment about a ‘Havana South’ in Buford….is this poor grammar or is there a Havana in Buford, Ga???? And if there is, is it the same family that owned the shop on Buford Hwy???

I used to love the Pittsburgh Sandwich (sort of like a philly cheesesteak with coleslaw & fries on it, not beside it) at Frankie’s. Since they are no longer open, my next favorite is Jersey Mike’s, I usually get a number 8 with mayo, lettuce, onion, banana peppers and then get some baked lays and pile them on my sandwich.

I’m not from New York. I am from a place with sandwich shops on every other corner. I know my sandwiches and ATLs little gourmet shops with their 8-10 dollar sandwiches with stupid catchy names just doesnt cut it in my book.
All I want is to walk into sandwich place that has a bunch of Italian guys behind the counter. The first thing out of their mouths should be do you want a hard roll or soft roll?

Then I know I’m at real sandwich shop.

I will try Baldinis.

But one of the best places I’ve been for sandwiches is a little spot in Hapeville (just stay with me here) called Cafe at the Corner.

Best value for dollar are Publix subs (made with boar’s head meats), but I agree about the veg- don’t bother if they don’t look fresh. Jason’s deli comes in second, but only because they’re way overpriced- their sandwiches are really good quality but they’re too big for me- $8 for a drink and a sandwich I can’t even finish seems like a waste when I can get the same for $5-$6 elsewhere. Third is Quiznos, but they’re the least consistent of the bunch.

Goldberg’s tuna salad on toasted cheddar bagel with fresh lettuce and tomato. Publix subs with Boars Head only are good too, but agree on consistency. Depends on what clerk makes it. When you order an Italian, they want to put mayo on it and you DON’T put mayo on an Italian. They even question you as to why. Guess it is a southern thing. Joli Kobe grilled chicken sandwich is also a treat.

Another great, and I mean great sandwich is the Irish Po’Boy at Johnnie McCracken’s Irish pub on the Marietta square. Corned beef (featured by Alton Brown on a Food Network special) butter, slaw, mustard, lettuce and tomato with Irish cheddar cheese. This sandwich is worth a drive from anywhere in the Atlanta area.

Star Provisions’ shrimp po boy is by far the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten. Their falafel is also quite good . . . every once in a while they have a scallop po boy that is as good as the shrimp . . . but you can always count on the shrimp being there. They use the freshest ingredients possible, bake their own bread, and know how to slap a sandwich together! Alon’s is also fantastic, but my personal fave is SP.

Muss & Turner’s in Smyrna/Vinings off Atlanta Rd. has about a dozen sandwiches that are crazy good, not to mention daily specials. Most are made with meats and other products that are cooked, prepared and processed in house. The bread is awesome. Just thinking about it makes me want to run over and get a Lamburger with sheep’s milk cheese on a soft wheat kaiser roll with a big slice of heirloom tomato on it. Muss’s free-range turkey breast that he cured himself and smoked in a giant kamado smoker vs. Publix’s limp, bleached out rubbery turkey “product”? No comparison.

Publix subs are awesome — I’m eating a tarragon chix salad on wheat — but to say that’s where you will find Atlanta’s best sandwiches???? So the sandwiches in Atlanta are no better than the ones in any podunk little town with a Publix/Subway/Firehouse/McRib (ok that one was funny)/etc???? That’s just stupid.

Shane’s BBQ? I have had better BBQ in the freezer section of Kroger. Atlanta is loaded with great BBQ places and you eat at a chain? Sonny’s is WAY better than Shanes and I give Sonny’s a 5 out of ten. While, I like Publix sandwiches. I name 20 places better. Hoboken Bread and Bagel Company has the best sandwiches in GA. Johnny McCrackens in Marietta Sq has very good sandwiches as well.

First of all, while I agree the best sandwich I have ever had was at Katz Deli (I go to NY every year for the US Open). However, we are sick and tried of hearing of how great NY city is and how everything is better in NY. There are great sandwich places around here in Atlanta. If NY is go great. Please go back. I will start taking up money for your plane ticket. On every blog, we have to hear about either a) how great NY food is OR b) how great of sports fans you are. Give a rest you arrogent j*rks.

all of you are hilarious this one is the best and that one is the best.. first of all who are you and what culinary background you all have to be judge of what best is.
you all should start saying you favorite is …, i work in food business since more than 20 years.
and most of people out there have no taste period. they can’t recognize this or that.
and remove constantly items from sandwiches, or on the side.

what is the point of going to a place for their great food if you remove all the ingredients that make that food combination great. Chefs sit down and actually invent and think their menus, for morons who will remove half of it.
come on people evolve and stop being spoiled rotten kids when it comes to food….
time to spread the buzz…
food is an art so respect the artists chefs
when you buy a painting, you don’t ask the artist to remove some red or blue
or put the yellow on the side.
i hope all the chefs in Atlanta will read this …
we are sick of you people.. making your own food combination at our tables
stay home and cook for your self in that case

Apparently Publix (I agree) is just great …So here is what you do. It takes a little bit of running around but a good sandwich is worth its weight in gold. Get the Boarshead thinly sliced roast beef from Publix. Also Jasons corned beef is great but their bread is not so good. So buy 1 lb of Jasons Deli corned beef, 1 lb of Publix Boars head rare roast beef (extreemly thinly sliced) and then get a loaf of rye bread at Gruby’s Deli. Don’t forget the hot mustard deli style (not honey mustard just hot deli mustard), go back to your place and enjoy a rare roast beef or a corned beef sandwich of a lifetime. Invite me over, too!

I would be sensitive to the chefs, but they should start giving me a reason to respect their food. Don’t charge me for “ambiance” and “artistry” when I actually could have made the meal I just ordered at home. Plus, mine would have tasted better. You just don’t get what you pay for these days — that includes taste, quality, presentation — so why should I care what you chefs think. Go back to school and give me something I couldn’t have come with while I’m cooking in my own kitchen!!!

They are NOT huge, monster sandwiches, more like what I’d prepare at home and very reasonably priced. Ask for a side of potato salad. And these guys do iced tea right – good & strong with a bottle of simple syrup to sweeten it yourself. Nice patio, too!

if you let people charge you for ambiance and artistry, then you’re no better than the lame food they serve you.
i usually go to a restaurant for two things one is food and second is service.
you seem very confident about your cooking, and that is a good thing.
i am too and we have thriving business and hundred of customers that agree.
but there is not the point.
the point is there is many of these places out there that serve garbages and they are jam packed full
all the time
and the people running these places are not even chefs they are business owners.
my comment was about all the people saying this is the best or this one is the best when they have no clue what they are talking about. instead of saying i like or not > who is the ultimate food connaisseur to say this is the best in my book no one.
and for the rest of my comment , you must be one of theses persons that want to make their own menus on order.. but please stay home and enjoy your home cooking…
i am sure you cook very good for yourself
we have plenty of EDUCATED customers that truly appreciate the food we serve as we put it together.
for my part you can stay home from my restaurant , i will not make you unhappy neither will you.

and by the way this comment was just general speaking only the one concerned will respond.

bandido-

I’d love to know which restaurant is yours? Please let everyone know so they can steer clear. If you’re in the service industry, learn about service, please………

Obviously, you didn’t take that class at culinary school………

Though I know you work soooo hard (so does everyone else eating at your restaurant) to create your meal, you’re in the service industry. If I’ve had a hard day, don’t give me crap about what I want. I know what I want. If you add a bunch of unecessary items I don’t want, eat crow and realize your serving me. If you don’t like serving people who don’t enjoy the same things you enjoy, deal with it. It’s your job. If you don’t like it, find another calling, server.

Also, may your customers don’t’ know as much as you think. Those that do may not enjoy your creations as is, and chose to alter them. Just a thought for the expert .

I like Jersey Mikes and Baldino’s; but Deli-Boy in Lawrenceville is the the best I have found anywhere.

Publix, Subway, Kroger, Blimpies, Firehouse subs etc… They all cut their meat far in advance and it loses flavor. Fresh cut meats and vegetables make a huge difference in taste and freshness. Try out Deli-Boy and you will be convinced.

The Georgia French Bakery in Duluth is DOMINANT!

The Frenchman owner, Oliver, bakes fresh bread and pastries every day. As for the sandwiches, go with the Veggie on Country French bread… or the Turkey on Baguette. DELICIOUS.

To top it off, the cookies are to die for.

hey pat after being in the restaurant business, and in the service industry for more than 20 years i truly can recognize educated people who really appreciate culinary creations .
and i would like to know your culinary back ground to judge which items are necessary or not.. in a sandwich or a dish. you must have seen Julie and Julia few weeks ago and now you must think you’re a foodie huh ..
well lady, i have been working in my life in restaurants that i could not even dream to afford back then, where you would be served 10 courses meals and above.

people like you are just pains. they know nothing and they think they do.
with service comes education.
if you go to the restaurant at the four seasons i doubt they will let you remove such and such.and you still will pay a fine fancy price for your meal.
and before you call anyone server.. with a bad tone ( shows the respect you have for serving people)
servers are not servant .. maybe you should have worked as a waitress in your life for like 6 month and you would know what these people go through when they deal with totally disrespectful people toward them because they had a bad day at work.
you know there is a great place for people like you , it is called BURGER KING have it your way they said. the people at the window are probably as courteous as you would be. and if you need to remove such and such unnecessary items ( as the expert you are knows) they will make you wait on the side like 10 minutes for a greasy disgusting burger.
i love my job, i started cooking professionally when i was still a kid, and believe me my beloved customers can tell and that is why they come back all the time.
i do not need to tell anyone where my place is especially not you, we have a lot of respectful customers ( toward the food and service).
anyway i think i explained you enough what service is about… , it is about providing a wonderful experience to the gracious customers, and not enduring some nightmare from some of them.

since you have the skills to make it at home better than anyone, how about you get started.

and also just to let you know i am far from beeing an expert still after 20 years of work in the kitchens
i am a real chef, trained in Europe, graduated at age 18 with honors, been working all types of cuisine in my life, including diet cuisine , and i could cover you with letters of recommendation of places i used to work at.
so no worries for the expert , because i am not, i am still learning things everyday , and for your sake keep watching the food channel , you might learn few tricks ,and maybe someday reproduce one. :- )
now you can keep writing all you want , i have delightful customers to serve because they truly enjoy my creations.., cooking is an art lady and the most expressive one .period.
respectfully
a Real Chef.

Baldino’s is worth the trip OTP, since you can almost touch 285 from the parking lot. It is the best sub I have had here.

I am excited to try Cosmic Dave’s and E48th St Market though.

As for the haters….some food IS better in NYC. Pizza, subs/heros, Italian food etc are among them. You can’t change that. It’s not all bad. The grits here are top notch.

Publix is fine, but nothing that would make a “best of” list.

I’m amazed, and yet not so, to find people that think Publix and QuikTrip make the best Sandwiches? Really? Has your life been so sheltered that this is the best you can find in the city of Atlanta? Even if you’ve never traveled outside the city, is Publix the best you can truly find? It’s pointless to compare a Reuben to a Chicken Salad to a Cuban, because that gets down to individual taste. What makes a sandwich unique is the BREAD. I’m sorry – I’ve lived in Atlanta since I was 6 years old (and I’m 52 now) and what passes for bread in this city for the most part is pretty bad: squishy and sugary and devoid of texture and FLAVOR. Bread shouldn’t gum up on your teeth because it’s so spongey, and it shouldn’t taste like dessert. It should have texture and chew and compliment its contents. What is sold as French or Italian bread in Atlanta is nothing like the real thing. Take a trip to France or Italy (or Germany or Spain – or New York or San Francisco or Chicago!) and see what the real bread tastes like. The fine people that have attempted to bring real bread to Atlanta often don’t last, because there’s no tradition for good bread here. Yes, I eat sandwiches from Publix and Jason’s. And while they’re filling and fine, they’re hardly the best. That’s not being a snob – it’s being discriminating, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Years ago, there were some real deli’s in Atlanta, but all are long gone. Anytime someone opens up a local operation, it’s hit or miss whether the people here will support it. I’ve looked long and hard for consistently good sandwiches in Atlanta, but as much as I love this city, the population here would rather support mass market chains where food is developed by corporate marketing people and ingredients are mass produced and designed for maximum shelf life and minimum flavor. I was amazed when Einstein’s Bagels opened up shop across the street from the Toco Hills Bagel Palace & Deli. Why would anyone want one of those squishy, airy things that they pass off as bagels when the real thing has existed across the street for years? Well, their parking lot is always crowded, which confirms my theory. Alas, I’ll have to be content to get a REALLY good sandwich when I leave the city, but I will definitely check out some of the suggestions on this blog.

I was there on Hwy 155 when Shane’s Rib Shack started serving in the beginning in 2002 – BBQ Pork Sandwich is the best. It is huge – I could make 3 meals out of it & the sauce is great. It does get messy, so be sure to have lots of napkins. I grew up with a dad who took us to sample every BBQ sandwich in GA and the surrounding states and no one in my memory has ever come close. Thanks Shane & Stacey!

Hoboken Bread and Bagel makes amazing sandwiches. You have to try the chicken salad if you have never had one form Hoboken. For breakfast its bacon egg and cheese on a jalapeno bagel, or for a real treat, New York Style (Lox).

Bandido-

Are you a “Real Chef of Atlanta” or something? Seriously, what esteemed chef would even need to explain him/herself to me if I’m not worth it? Seems you may think too much of yourself…..

As for my comments, they weren’t directed to all servers or chefs–only you. It seems you missed the boat on service yet again. I respect anyone willing to serve someone, but don’t feel you deserve any more respect than the person eating your meal.

Oh, and the Food Network has more sponsors, experts, and pull in your industry than you do. So I think I’d rather take advice from them.

Bill

October 1st, 2009

With deference to all preceding comments, may I suggest the following:
You are ALL right – your favorite is YOUR favorite. The question is, have you tried BALDINOS GIANT JERSEY SUBS?

To those who suggested Publix, you’re right. Any given day, depending on how old the bread is or who is making your sandwich, the subs are good – but it’s a gamble; the staff is not trained to make sandwiches and for sure, the system is not geared towards recipe or customer service.

For those of you who prefer sub sandwich chains, you probably have not been to Baldinos; there is one in Doraville and one in Marietta – that’s it in the ATL…www.baldinosofatlanta.com

And with deference to bandido jefe – you are right as well: There are ‘gourmet sandwiches’ out there that cost over $100 using rare ingredients like black truffles and caviar. Carnegie Deli in NY will sell a sandwich for $20 that you can’t get your mouth around but for the rest of us ‘everyday sandwich eating public’; quality meats, fresh ingredients and fresh baked rolls are the key to a good Sub, and what makes it GREAT is the portion of all the combined ingredients. BALDINOS has a variety of 30 different Subs; some have less meat than others. The produce they put on the sandwich is direcly proportionate to the amount of meat; and the amount of vinegar & oil is directly proportionate to the amount of produce – get my drift?

I apologize for this wordy comment but to sum it up: BALDINOS uses quality meats, SLICED FRESH WHEN ORDERED; produce is prepped at the restaurant every morning – nothing is prepackaged; the bread is baked all day, every day. Day old bread is sold or given away – never used on a sandwich. Their Hot Subs are grilled – not nuked or toaster ovened and the price is right! Yes, BALDINOS is my favorite.

IGrouchy’s does a nice Turkey Club
PUBLIX is the closest you get to a traditional sub(I was born and raised in Philly and NJ, sorry Jersey Mikes,Blimpies and that other place, but the Bread is Key)
I like a good Bahn Mi as well, check Buford Highway for some Vietnamese spots, u can usually get 5 for 10 bucks
Atlanta Bread Company makes a better than decent Chicken Salad(all meat not soupy with mayonaise) and I order it on a baguette

Clark, would you mind providing the proper documentation for the “fact” that you referenced in your needlessly insulting post? The fact of the matter is that taste is purely subjective and there is no criteria that sets forth any standard when it comes to what an individual likes or dislikes.

I get a pretty good kick from the fact that Pulix makes such a good sub and Kroger makes such a TERRIBLE sub. I even suggested to Kroger that they could just go buy a sub at Publix and analyze and copy it, because for sure they do not have a clue. Evidence shows that they didn’t try that.

Yup..I go for Publix just about once a week. Their Italian Sub is sooo good. Add some lettuce, some salt and pepper, some olive oil and a bit of red vinegar, and its a really really good sub. And truly surprising for me was Subway’s veggie on wheat. I got every vegetable along with peppers. Yum! But nothing tops the sandwiches I make at home. All supplies from Publix: I take sourdough bread (sandwiched sliced..from publix bakery) mayo, roast beef, and buttercase cheese. I then put it all on the sourdough and pan fry it as you would a grilled cheese. Until the cheese is melted and the beef is hot all the way through. Yum, Yum and Yum.

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 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.

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.

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.

My top pick based on food alone? Alon’s.The Tuscany is a particular favorite of mine, although the lamb is probably their most famous sandwich.

My top pick overall? Rising Roll is excellent. Every sandwich I’ve tried there has been good. At the Mansell location, the staff is always friendly and the place is absolutely immaculate. They got started right here in Atlanta, so I’d consider them local.

Wildflour on Windward is delicious (the shrimp salad sandwich is particularly good), but their hours can be sketchy — they run out of things at times and close early, so plan accordingly if you intend to visit.

Muss & Turner’s tries hard, but can be hit or miss. However, their Sloppy Joe is a huge hit. One of the best I’ve ever eaten.

I have been advertising for the owner for years as well. They also have other gourmet dishes (lamb over rice) and HUGE, HUGE SALADS, PACKED WITH MEAT, CHEESES AND VEGGIES OF ALL KINDS. IF YOU WANT TO FILL YOUR BELLY WITH GOOD STUFF TO EAT, HEALTHY STUFF, TRY MR. EVERYTHING DELI. It’s located on MARTIN LUTHER KING JR.

Obviously the best deli is Reuben’s Deli on Broad Street in the heart of Atlanta. Located at 57 Broad Street they offer a vast array of deli favorites, using both Boar’s Head and Thumann’s Meats. Reuben’s Deli was awarded Best Deli in Atlanta in 2007 and continues to be the beacon of sandwich making in the SE. (57 Broad St NW Atlanta, GA 30303) Publix and Blimpie’s WOW, no comparison to Reuben’s NY style feel and delicious sandwiches and combination of soups, salads, pasta sides, and desserts.

Is there a Just Loafin’ still around? The one of Boulevard closed, but I second the shrimp po boy there -it’s AWESOME -and better than any I’ve ever had including in and around New Orleans. Atkins Park has a mean reuben, and I love La Fonda’s Cuban Reuben -others copy it, but La Fonda’s is the best. I agree that some Publix subs are absolutely amazing and others taste like cardboard. Solstice Cafe in Grant Park does have yummy sandwiches, and outside of my mother’s homemade -Watershed’s pimiento cheese sandwich ROCKS!

It is reopening in the Crossroads Village Shopping Center, corner of Buford Hwy. and Clairmont Road (next to the Aldi’s grocery, behind the Burger King).

Everybody’s at Emory did both the EB’s Sandwich (Roast beef, pastrami, provolone cheese) hot on a hoagie roll with lettuce tomato and their herb dressing. Also the Kenilworth (onions, green pepper, mushrooms, pepperoni and sausage with provolone) and a drizzle of the herb dressing.

These guys needed to franchise years ago, but missed the boat… they also deep sixed some of the best offerings on the menu. Maybe I’ll start a franchise… “Everyones”.

I worked there for over 10 years and they seem to have “thrown the baby out with the bathwater” while changing their menu.

WhichWich at The Forum?!!! I think this poll must have been stacked by people working for this place. Had lunch there today on this recommendation. Small sandwiches, very expensive, but worse – after going through their elaborate ordering process, they still left cheese off one of the sandwiches. Almost $15 for 2 bags of their home-made chips (the highlight of the meal), muffaletta (on a standard hoagie roll not typical muffaletta bread which is what makes it a muffaletta!) and a club sandwich (also on a hoagie roll rather than toast – their website says ALL sandwiches are toasted – neither was). What a disappointment. Hope I’ve saved someone else their time and $$$.

I love reubens so much I remember exactly my thought the first time I ate one…”Where has this been all of my life!” My husband is always worried when I want to try one somewhere other than Howards, my favorite reuben joint in Georgia, because rarely does one compare to that first one years ago. After reading the reviews here we set out for the New Yorker Deli in Smyrna this afternoon hoping to find on equally as tempting. The fries were quite good, but soggier than the fries at Five Guys, which is our paragon of hand cut fries. The reuben was a disappointment – a chintzy amount of meat and soggy toast. So Howards remains our top choice for sandwiches – reuben for me, the corned beef and pastrami for hubby.

Ah, yes….the food opinion column. This is where is gets really good and entertaining, everyone always gets so hot over someone else’s opinion on whatever food is being highlighted. Honestly folks, it’s just food. And Woody, since you have given it away that you are not from Atlanta, don’t dare say where you are from. Someone will always tell you to go back there since you don’t like whatever food is being talked about. And some other dope always comes up with the outdated slogan from Delta that they are ready when you are. And yay for Publix, I’m glad to see they are doing so well in the sandwich category!

Hands down, the best sandwiches are at 3 spots in Dunwoody…..Wright’s Gourmet, E. 48th Street, and Alon’s at Park Place. The first two are hidden gems and have been in business for years with a large and loyal local following. Alon’s came OTP a couple of years ago, and has been embraced by the community.

It’s a pretty sorry state when you see people here saying PUBLIX has the best sandwiches. Then again, what can you expect from native Georgians who are used to eating the insides and feet of an animal. I suppose the best pizza is Totino’s, the best Mexican is Taco Bell and for that craved burger, you hit a homerun with Checkers.

If you go to a deli at a supermarket and spend $6-$7 on a sandwich why not just get the pound of meat, get the rest of what you need and you can have more than one? Oh yeah, that makes to much sense. And forget the drive thru, I’ve been here 3 years and I’m still waiting for Billy Ray Jim Bob to get an order right. How about that Walmart Chicken? Woo boy! Unbelievable.

Oh, btw, for those of you who love a Firehouse sandwich, don’t go to the doctor for a cholesterol level check for at least a month. You can wring them out like the laundry out of the washer. Subway, good for food poisoninng or a lousy frozen meatball sandwich thawed in a microwave, or how about a steak and cheese after they soak the steak for about 9 hours and nuke that? Reallly good stuff there. That guy might as well have a dirt pita!
How about that over-priced Quizno’s? Oh, there’s a terrific effort there…wrong.

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.

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.

Anyone knocking Publix is a egotistical yuppie moron. You don’t have to pay a fortune or eat at some special store to get a good sub.

The Boars Head meat selection is far and above the pathetic meat selection you get served at most one-off restaurants and sub shops. It is rivaled only by true butcher shops. I have still not found a better roast beed in the entirety of Atlanta, and thats encompassing eating at about 40 different restaurants for subs, many that are on this list.

The drawback to Publix is that the bread is usually over-cooked. It’s a sad thing to waste high quality meat on two concrete slabs of bread. Publix needs to learn that bread for subs is not a french roll. Fortunately, you can choose a different type of bread at some of the better Publix restaurants.

Sicne bread and meat are what comprise at least 80% of my score, and sicne Boars Head is the best you can get for the money, to me Publix is a clear winner. Don’t be a snob and give them a try, but be wary of the typical bread they use.

Jasons deli-sandwich, Publix, Baldinos-subs, pizza-Grand Central on glenwood rd Atl, Cheese steak-Weymans-downtown stone mountain. On the same note, why is it deli meat isnt as good as it is in new York and other northern states? Have you ever noticed that and if your from the south you shouldnt even responded to this because you grow up with crappy sandwiches and think this crap is good without knowing what we northeners really know about good food. Stick to your soul food and ribs.

While I also did not read all of the posts I found no mention of “Nicks Grecian Gyro” on Virginia Ave
near the airport. I personally think Nick’s Gyro is the best sandwich on the planet. Rotisserie grilled
seasoned lamb on a grilled pita with onion, tomato and Nick’s special sauce. I order the lamb crispy
and the sauce is incredible. The combination of flavors and texture will produce cravings worthy of
a long drive to satisfy!
