Austin Deli

Has anyone found a good deli in Austin. I recently moved here from NYC and haven't had any luck. I've tried Katz's (terrible), Manny Hattans (fair), and a few sub/hoagie shops. So far Hog Island is top on my list.

      These may not be what you are used to (coming from NYC) but they can make a mean sandwich...

      San Francisco Bakery off Anderson has the best sourdough bread. Any sandwich with this as a base is wonderful.

      New World Deli- Good Ruebens and Curried Chicken Salad

      Little Deli- Just a cool place with good food

    2. I'd add the Kitchen Door to the list just for the meatloaf sandwich.

        Thanks for your input, I will absolutely give them a shot. Hog Island has an excellent cheese-steak, I believe them bring bread in from the Northeast.
