Get bready — it’s National Sandwich Month, and we’re going big (like foot-long big) with our list of some of the best sandos in the city.
Shapiro’s Delicatessen, 808 S. Meridian St. | No Indy sandwich roundup would be complete without Shapiro’s — which has been slinging legendary corned beef, pastrami, and much more since 1905. Thanks to the cafeteria-style setup, you also get your choice of delectable side dishes and desserts.
Turchetti’s Salumeria, 1110 Prospect St. | This one’s for the carnivores. The quality and taste of the Indiana-raised meat and hyper-local produce that make up Turchetti’s sandwiches is unmatched. The lunch special — a ‘wich and side for $11.99 — is hard to beat.
World Famous HotBoys, 1004 Virginia Ave. | Wanna really spice up your life? Check out these sandos filled with huge pieces of hot chicken (and we mean hot; it’s best to be conservative when selecting your spice level.) Pro tip: if you’re a fellow sauce fanatic, order an extra “money sauce.”
Chao Vietnamese Street Food, 7854 E. 96th St. | If you haven’t had a banh mi, are you really a sandwich fan? This joint in Fishers serves them up with your choice of protein. Make sure to grab a boba tea too.
Porter Books & Bread, 5719 Lawton Loop E. Dr. | Tucked into a nondescript corner of Lawrence is this cozy library cafe. Order a Vonnegut, Virgil, or any other sandwich named after your favorite author and tuck into a quiet nook to get some reading or work done.
Soupremacy, 7 E. Market St. | This cafe may be best known for its small batch soups, but its paninis shine just as bright. Try the Dirty Swede for a slightly sweet Meatless Monday shakeup.
