Given a choice, I go to the fancy gourmet shop that has half a dozen kinds of bread fresh from the bakery (not a bag), dozen different condiment options and types of cheese add one. I like the fancy kinds of chicken and tuna salad - the ones with the apples and grapes, but almost all of their salads and cheeses are top notch.
2nd would be the Jewish deli for a pastrami, brisket or corned beef on rye- extra points because they have the best pickles.
3rd would be the Italian or pizza place for an eggplant or meatball parm. Toasted.

Any of the above are better than I would make for myself.

I prefer deconstructed sandwiches so that I can appreciate the components themselves.

First, the bread must be exceptional so I enjoy it by itself. Why mush some proteins and some wet vegetables onto beautifully crafted, crusty bread?

Next, the filling must be able to stand on its own as worthy of the calories and other nutrients. Freshly roasted turkey, a wonderful corned beef, or steaming spicy pastrami, these are worthy of celebration.

Sandwich add-ons do not usually enhance the experience. Limp lettuce and flat tasteless tomatoes are not worth the effort. Crisp lettuce and perky tomatoes deserve their own plate; don't hide them under bread!

Neither mustard nor mayonnaise will be needed when the "sandwich" is eater in its most basic form.

Ta-Ta. I just remembered I've haven't had lunch yet!

Thanks for the info on Paris Baguette. Unfortunately the nearest to us is in Beaverton, Oregon, 143 miles away, but we do actually get down there a couple of times a year. Next time we'll stop by and try it.

If you go to NYC Katz's deli is very good and 2nd avenue deli was also good but I believe it closed down. I used to go to a place called Wolfies in Merrick NY. Nothing like a good Jewish deli IMO. The bagel boss by me makes decent sandwiches and so does Stuff a Bagel in Farmingdale. there are 2 local deli's by me that are so so.

I go to a local sandwich shop near my sister's place. The owner retired from the Philadelphia PD, came to San Antonio to visit kin, and stayed. He learned how to make cheesesteaks from Geno's, imports his bread from Philly, and serves it up with Cheez Whiz just like Geno's. They are delicious.

I've never had a real Philly cheesesteak until these, so will not make comparisons to any other version. I just know these really hit the spot.

Back in the 1990s, I would go to the K-Mart deli, and buy "old" subs. They featured mild banana peppers - a new taste to me. IIRC, they were $0.69 when past their prime. I enjoyed them, nonetheless.
