Best roast beef for sandwiches in DC?

  • 9

I'm looking for a deli/supermarket/sandwich joint/whatever that sells roast beef--ideally, house-roasted--for takeout. I used to get the RB at Whole Foods on P Street but was burned a few times with really substandard meat. The RB at Balducci's on Old Georgetown Road is decent but a shlep. Any suggestions? Thanks.

  1. Clydes on the Walk in Chinatown does a pretty nice roast beef sandwich. They carve the roast beef in front of you. I have typically found them to be fresh and tastey.

    1. harris teeter's own brand of deli roast beef is quite good.

        1. Don't laugh.....Giant deli....cut from the whole store made piece. Usually very rare and makes a silly French Dipp.

            Giant is ok, overseasoned to give it more of a 'beefy' flavor, as I expect from a supermarket.

          2. One of my favorites is Hodges on NY Avenue between 5th & 6th.
            It's a little hole in the wall, but ohhhh so good. Plenty of meat!!

            1. I love Cafe Phillips -- near metro center. They hand cut massive roasts, very rare, served just warm and perfect!!
