OKG Eat: Killer sandwiches

by

comment

It’s said that the Earl of Sandwich lent his namesake to the idea of meat between bread. Legend has it that he was too busy during a card game to have a full dinner and he didn’t want to soil his playing cards. We appreciate his ingenuity and celebrate countless variations of meat on bread throughout the metro.

Neptune Submarine Sandwiches

3301 N. Classen Blvd.

525-0414

This charming midcentury building on Classen Boulevard launched in Oklahoma City in 1975 and quickly became an institution. The freshly baked buns, shredded lettuce and special dressing all add up to be one of the tastiest subs you’ll have for a steal. With its complete lack of pretension and amazing prices, grab a torpedo to-go.

This unassuming lunch spot has its share of regulars. They know that the bread and sweet treats are baked fresh daily and the deli sandwiches are hard to beat. The prices are affordable, and the selection is fresh and made to order. You absolutely cannot miss out on the corned beef on rye.

ND Foods continues to be a relatively well- kept secret, but one can only guess why. This beautiful deli with some of the most amazing cakes and pies makes a delicious lunch with fresh breads and soups. The Reuben cannot be beat, we can’t choose one soup and if you know what’s good for you, save room for a slice of its icebox pie.

You’ve driven by it and probably wondered what it’s like. Stop for the lunch rush, call in an order or treat the whole office to some of the best darn sandwiches in the metro. Everything is fresh and made to order, and the curry chicken salad also might be served in heaven. It’s that good.

The bagels are the star of the show at Old School Bagel Cafe. They’re boiled before they’re baked, and that’s why this cafe has its name. No matter what you pile on it, you’re bound to taste the difference in these bagels. Order the Sooner Club with a side of chips and then brag to all your friends about how much better your lunch was.

You see, we have a hard time recommending one thing at The Stuffed Olive. Why? Because everything we’ve tried was absolutely delicious. All sandwiches come on beautiful bread with pasta salad or chips, and you can add soup or salad for a little bit extra. The Tuscany Turkey is a delight. Start there and work your way through its menu — you know you’ll go back.
