eggplant or chicken parmigiana sandwich in Chapel Hill area?

I'm pregnant and craving an eggplant parmigiana sandwich (or chicken, if I can't get eggplant). Anyone know where to get a good one in Carrboro or Chapel Hill or Durham? I had one last night from Italian Pizzeria III on Franklin Street in Chapel Hill, but it was just OK.

  1. IP3 is the standard for us around here. The chicken parm suffers because (I'm 90% sure) it's frozen chicken. Still, I haven't found one here that matches it.

      Have you had the chicken parmesan sandwich at Amante Pizza? It's not available at the Carrboro location, so I haven't gotten out to the Hwy 54 location and tried it yet.

    2. Not a *great* version, but Alfredo's in University Mall has them. I really feel like I've seen this on some other menu in the area, and it is driving me slightly nuts trying to think where. I also love eggplant parm sandwiches, so I do tend to notice them. If I think of it, I'll add it to the thread. Good luck.

      1. Pretty sure J&J's does them, though I can't address the quality never having ordered one.

        1. Carmine's in Eastgate has eggplant parm sandwiches on their lunch menu:

          Sal's also has them:

          1. I used to LOVE the chicken and veal parm subs over at Anna Maria's in Carrboro Plaza. Haven't been there in 2+ years but at the time it was definitely one of the best I've had...
