Scottie’s is the only deli in the city where everything from the bread to the meat and even the pickles and mustard are made in-house. The freshness comes through in the excellent final product that will leave you full and happy. It offers a few things that can’t be found elsewhere like duck pastrami and smoked chicken salad, which are the perfect complement to classics done right.
Rivière Modern Bánh Mì
905 N. Hudson Ave.

This elevated Vietnamese concept from the folks behind Jimmy’s Egg is serving traditional family recipes alongside modern takes on the bánh mì. Enjoy a craft cocktail while chopping into a pho-rench dip that is a French dip with Vietnamese flavors or the Bánh Fire that puts Buffalo chicken on a fresh baguette roll. You can also get traditional Vietnamese charcuterie on the James Bánh, but be sure to get an order of the Vietnamese street corn or wok-fried green beans with your order.
The Sandwich Club
3703 N. Western Ave.

If you like your sandwich with a side of ’80s nostalgia, The Sandwich Club is the right place for you. Even if menu references to Escape from New York and Revenge of the Nerds might go over your head, you’ll find comfort in a well-made sandwich. Choose from a variety of options or build your own with fun vegetables like sprouts, sun-dried tomato and spreads like pesto and red pepper hummus.
2150 S. Douglas Blvd., Midwest City
This Midwest City staple dutifully serves up no-frills sandwiches as well as excellent fries and burgers plus innovative Philly cheesesteaks and the Wicked Chicken sandwich that is a grilled chicken sandwich with a twist. Friendly service puts Super Subs over the top with a menu that includes hot dogs, wraps and fresh salads.
325 N. Walker Ave.

Hobby’s Hoagies lost its patriarch George Hobson earlier this year, but you can still enjoy some tasty sandwiches that the Delaware transplant opened at two locations (one in Edmond and one downtown) because of a lack of steak sandwiches in the area. The menu runs the gamut of Philly steak sandwiches, hot Italian, chicken and regular hoagies and even spaghetti. Be sure to get some of the special hoagie peppers piled high on a housemade Italian roll.
Caeli’s Sweets Eats & Bar
726 W. Sheridan Ave.

When it comes to unique sandwiches, Caeli’s has everyone else beat with its meatball grilled cheese. The sandwich is simplistic serendipity as mozzarella is melted around the housemade meatballs while the bread gets crispy on the exterior and it is served with marinara for dipping. Caeli’s also offers classic sandwiches like an Italian sub, chicken salad and more.
2632 W. Britton Road
Be sure to unhinge your jaw before ordering a sandwich at ND Foods. The family-owned sandwich shop that is also inside an antique store not only delivers huge sandwiches made with high-quality Boar’s Head meat, you can also check out a great collection of furniture and art. Get a hot sandwich like pastrami or muffuletta pilled high or go with something cold like Cajun turkey or tuna salad.
