  1. hmmm, don't kill me but Schlotzsky's? i'm not 100% certain what's on a Muffaletta other than the olive tapenade...and the original at Schlotzsky's has that plus salami, ham, cheese, etc. am i way off base? i know, it's a chain....

    1. I'm pretty sure YJ's (472-5533) has a good one, or used to at least.

      1. You might try The Cashew, my husband liked the one he had there.

        1. McAllisters Deli has a muffaletta on the menu. You even buy it by the qtr. I thought it was good but haven't had one anywhere else so can't compare. I am curious as to the authenticity, anyone know?

            McAllister's Deli is also a chain. That doesn't make it bad (automatically) and that doesn't make it authentic either. I have enjoyed several meals at Schlotzky's and at McAllister's Deli locations over the years.

          2. years ago I use to buy muffaletta sandwich from The Better Cheddar on the plaza

                I don't believe D'Bronx offers a muffuletta.

              2. Jason's Deli (chain) has a good one, and I believe they're in the KC area (might even be FROM the KC area, we have them in Wichita). But since I've never been to N.O., I can't vouch for authenticity.

                  Yes, Jason's Deli has muffaletta, although I've never tried it. There are several locations in KC, mainly Overland Park and Olathe areas.

                    theres one downtown on either grand or main street....

                2. I would check out Cupini's and Taratino's. They both have Italian sandwiches, I just can't remember the specific types.

                  1. I just stopped by this new little shop in Columbus Park (just north of downtown but south of the river) the other day called Happy Gillis. They had a muffaletta on their menu as well as several other awesome looking sandwiches.

                      Also, I was at the Cashew last night and they have one on their menu.
