I live in OH and it's entirely possible to find independent sandwich shops and restaurants here. I already posted Jimmy's in Liberty OH. Here's another good one - https://www.kravitzdeli.com/libertymenu.html

I have no idea why anyone would prefer Jersey Mike's, Jimmy John's, Fire House or Subway to a local, mom and pop eatery.

We have plenty in OH, but some people are only open to chains. I will never figure that out.

Because with few exceptions mom and pop shops are more costly.

At least where I'm from, this doesn't apply just about anywhere I've been.

My first choice is a local sandwich shop that's been around for a few decades. If not there, I like Jersey Mike's.

Absolutely not true here (NJ).

I used to get sandwiches for lunch all the time from any of the many Jewish delis around my office. Couldn't really go wrong with any of them.

The best sandwiches around here, are found at Milton's in Del Mar, and DZ Aikins in San Diego.

When I used to coach, in Chula Vista, I'd pass by DZ Aikin's for their brisket dip. (Never disappointed.)

And I'm not even Jewish, but I know a good sandwich when I eat one!

Unfortunately, the only sandwiches around here, are at Board & Brew, locally. They're "so-so." (Again, the beef dip.)

Throwing out subs and hoagies, the only decent sandwich in the area is a Jewish deli.

Here too. More costly? What by a dollar or two? If that? And the sandwiches are generally made by family members not teenage kids who don't care.

They aren't going to spit in your sandwich. That's worth a couple of bucks to me. They are also CLEAN and authentic.

PS - I have personally NOT found them to be more pricey, but that's in Ohio.

Most of the traditional sandwich shops in Ohio have morphed into chains. Izzy's in Cincinnati and Milano's in Dayton started with one store and now have a good number of locations. And once they are bought out by private equity from the original owners, they have gone downhill.

Personally, I would head to Jungle Jim's, buy a couple pounds of meat, some great cheese, and a great loaf of bread and make my own.
