Top 5 Sandwich Shops in SLC

1. Tony Caputo's: From prosciutto to provolone, meatballs to mortadella, Caputo’s is the undisputed champ of deli-wrapped sandos in SLC, and this spot serves up the good, old-fashioned variety from a few local locales (downtown, Holladay, and 15th & 15th). Whatever the weather, The Caputo (tightly packed with prosciutto, mortadella, salami, provolone, lettuce, tomato, olive oil, and balsamic) satisfies any and all cravings, and we’re not mad at The Meatball, either. 314 W Broadway, Mon. - Sat., 9:00a - 7:00p, Sun., 10:00a - 5:00p

2. Feldman's Deli: We can hardly believe that Salt Lake can stake claim to the blessedness that is the Feldman’s Reuben. This Jewish deli, unassumingly perched next to Cactus & Tropicals in Millcreek, serves up New York-style fare, including an array of sammies and sides. Apart from the Reuben (pause while “Hungry Eyes” plays in the distance), we recommend the Sloppy Joe (a heavenly composition of corned beef, pastrami, thousand island, and coleslaw on Jewish rye), Matzo ball soup, or potato pancakes. Bonus: the daily supply of baked-and-boiled-fresh bagels—get ‘em while you can. Tues. - Sat., 8:00a - 10:30a, 11:00a - 3:00p, and 5:30p - 8:30p (Thurs. - Sat.)

3. Broadway Deli: A lunch break staple for white-collar folk, this sandwich spot’s downtown perch is directly adjacent to the Broadway Theatre. The heaping portions and ability to consistently nail down-home classics make the B-way D a quintessential spot for grab-n-go lunchtime necessities. The French Dip and Croissant Club (hickory-smoked turkey, bacon, mayo, provolone, lettuce and tomato on a flaky croissant—mmmmmm) are both delish, or you can make a custom build, piled high with all your fave fixins (they've got everything). Pro tip: Order online to skip the line. Mon. - Fri., 8:30a - 7:00p, Sat. - Sun., 11:00a - 7:00p

4. Moochie's: While the sign out front touts that Moochie’s offers a wide variety of saucy, east-coast Italian delicacies, there’s one staple that this SLC spot has undeniably got down to a science: the Philly Cheesesteak. This authentic hoagie is loaded with thin-sliced ribeye and grilled onions, and the whole thing is topped with gooey, delicious, melted American cheese. It’s the best in the city, hands down. When you’ve finished, prepare for the inevitable (and very well-earned) food coma. Truly transcendent, this one. Mon. - Sat., 10:30a - 8:30p

5. Este Deli: Firmly planted in the literal heart of downtown, this spot (from Este Pizza’s Dave Heiblim, so you know it’s good) is whipping up some of our all-time favorite hot and cold NYC-inspired hoagies. Our recommendations? The Este (prosciutto, fresh mozzarella, tomato, basil, lettuce, and to-die-for house dressing) or the Eggplant Parm (with house marinara and sharp provolone). Either way, best add a side of fried pickles. Vegan and vegetarian options also abound here, so everyone’s bound to find a bit of Big Apple magic to fall for. Mon. - Fri., 8:00a - 4:00p
