Best Sandwiches In Sacramento

Sacramento has an incredible and competitive sandwich and deli market that gives all residents an abundance of options. So, with so many sandwiches available, why have you been going to those boring chains? Try one of the following sandwich shops for incredible, flavorful creations served on homemade bread with a side of love.
Mo Mo's Meat Market
5776 Broadway
Sacramento, CA 95820
(916) 452-0202

Mo Mo's Meat Market is known for two things: BBQ and sandwiches. The tri-tip sandwiches are delicious and overflowing with tender meat and drizzled with Mo Mo's special BBQ sauce. While it does offer other sandwich options, don't bother looking at them. Just order the tri-tip, and a side of seafood chowder, and enjoy.

Sampino's Towne Foods
1607 F St.
Sacramento, CA 95814
(916) 441-2372

Sometimes there is nothing better than an authentic Italian sandwich, which is why Sampino's made the list. Its meatball sandwich is gigantic, flavorful and divine, and its veggie sandwich is covered in eggplant, zucchini, provolone, squash and an amazing garlic aioli and balsamic combo. If you want a sandwich that tastes like home, order the chicken Parmesan.

Juno's Kitchen & Delicatessen
3675 J St.
Sacramento, CA 95816
(916) 456-4522

There really is nothing better than a sandwich shop that does variety really well, which is where Juno's shines. From the pastrami to eggplant to bahn mi, everything it serves is top notch. If you want the best Juno's has to offer, order the steak sandwich with a side of pan-fried potatoes. Like this restaurant, the parking is in high demand, so go a little earlier and plan on taking your sandwich to go for maximum enjoyment.

Roxie Deli and Grocery
3340 C St.
Sacramento, CA 95816
(916) 443-5402

The seating here can be a bit of a mess. However, its sandwiches more than make up for it. The Roxie House is its specialty, with turkey, pastrami and cheddar cheese. However, don't think that the sandwich skills are strictly reserved for turkey; Roxie has an incredible meatball and provolone sandwich that is out of this world. The sandwiches come in three different size options, but unlike most places, the larger sizes have nothing to do with how much bread you get; it's all about how much meat you can handle.

Corti Brothers
5810 Folsom Blvd.
Sacramento, CA 95819
(916) 736-3800

You need to know that when it comes to Corti Brothers, you can expect a 30-minute wait for a sandwich, and the sandwiches tend to be on the more expensive side. However, that wait and cost are completely worth it. The sandwiches are big, meaty and worth every penny and every second of your time. Corti not only has a variety of specialty sandwiches to choose from, but also a fully loaded meat and cheese case that will let you create any combination your heart could desire.
