Jimmy John’s Brings the Weirdness

I rolled up to Jimmy John’s on the first floor of my building — searching for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for a late lunch. They don’t have pb&j, but what they do have is this guy:
His name is Alex and he better not get fired for his awesomeness. You see, the guys (usually they are dudes) that work there also deliver sandwiches to nearby businesses and residents that order.

The Jalopy: Sandwiches from a Mack Truck

The folks from The Jalopy: Rotisserie and Press invited me to come by and give their pressed sandwiches a try before their grand opening.

Food Heads = Really Great Sandwiches and Soups

I often forget about Food Heads but I was recently reminded that it’s a really great place to enjoy friendship and food. They have a large selection of soups, sandwiches and more. With the weather getting nicer by the day, don’t forget about this little lunch spot hidden away on W. 34th Street.

Next door to Food Heads is Salvation Pizza — where some of the best pie in Austin is served.

Jeffrey’s Love Letter to the Sandwich

Editor’s Note: This is a guest post from my younger brother. He lives in New York and runs operations for a brand of women’s shoes called Miz Mooz.

I can’t recall a time in my life when I didn’t love a good sandwich. As a toddler I had a fickle palate and to this day my cousin Cary reminds me how I would tote along a freshly made peanut butter sandwich to our local Chinese restaurant.
