Atlanta Sandwiches

We've been in Atlanta for 4 years now, but we've sampled much more of the higer cuisine of the city. I'd love to know what some of the best local sandwiches are, other than the BBQ (which we do love!). Anyone have to-die-for favorites? We're ITP and don't often drive very far outside the perimeter, unfortunately.

  1. I used to enjoy Happy Herman's, but, I think it has closed. Havana has great cuban sandwiches.
    Outside the perimeter in Dunwoody is Wright's Deli, they make this super meatloaf sandwich and their turkey salad sandwich is yummy too.
    Vintage pizza in Historic Chamblee, has really good pizza and all of the sandwiches I have tried are very good.
    I do enjoy Goldberg's Deli, but outside the perimeter also.
    Good luck,
    Let us know what you find!

      It's been a few years, but I've eaten at Wright's Deli a few times and it was fantastic food. Highly recommended. And Mr. Wright is a complete sweetheart....

        Definitely Goldberg's Deli - sandwiches just like you'd find in an authentic New York deli. There is a location inside the Perimeter at 4383 Roswell Road. It is in the same shopping center as the Fresh Market, about 2 miles inside the Perimeter, just south of where Wieuca Road crosses Roswell Road.

          And on Chamblee Dunwoody on the W side just OTP (like 100yd).

      2. I thought Happy Herman's was still open, but I haven't looked lately when driving past.

        Definitely Alon's. E 48th St Mkt. Muss & Turner's. Star Provisions.

        For ethnic, there's lots of good taquerias to get tortas from (Los Rayos, Los Compadres, and the El Molino on Cheshire Bridge come to mind). And multiple places to get banh mi- I usually hit Nhu Y Deli, though I've been to Hong's more recently. And I've read about a place in the square w/ Ranch 99 market on AC.

        A good po boy stuffed with fried shrimp or oysters is a thing of beauty, too, but nowhere's jumping to mind to get one.

        1. Flavor Cafe Bakery, 236 Johnson Ferry Road, Sandy Springs - just west of Roswell Road - has a variety of excellent sandwiches. My brisket sandwich today was excellent. The lunch menu shows 17 different sandwiches. I haven't yet tried them all, but I have enjoyed every one that I have tried.

          1. My favorite sandwich in town is the Pan con Bistec at Papi's on Ponce.
            Marinated shaved steak with grilled onions, swiss cheese, a handful of french fries pressed on garlic cuban bread. Does it get any better than that?

            1. I agree with a couple hounders as well:
              Goldberg's Deli is nice ----there is also one at the corner of West Paces Ferry Road and I75
              Star Provisions is killer
              Kool Korner for Cubans
              The Vortex has a great grilled cheese as well
