Everyday Eats: Rubicon Deli

These killer sandwiches are a must-try



Sometimes, sandwiches are a utility food. They're easy to make, highly transportable, and you can eat them at your desk and still keep one hand on your keyboard. This is not true of the sandwiches at The Rubicon Deli. Fresh-baked bread, primo spreads, and tasty deli-style meats make for sandwiches so good they demand your undivided attention. Many times, I've been so focused on my turkey 'which that I can no longer hold a conversation. It's just me and that sandwich, and I couldn't be happier.

The main difference between Rubicon and all other sandwich makers is the bread. Giant loaves of it are baked daily, in flavors like blue cheese, garlic, pesto, and my personal fave: jalapeño jack. By itself, it's flavorful enough to eat plain, but when it's stuffed with turkey, jack cheese, chipotle mayo (an upgrade that's definitely worth the extra 50 cents) and veggies, it's a knockout.

I'm a bit of a control freak when it comes to sandwiches, so I like to build my own. For $8.49, you can get a full sandwich, which is big enough to feed two people, or get a half sandwich for $5.99. There's also a menu of signature sandwiches like the Achin' 4 Bacon (essentially a California club),  the Don Pastram (which has a half pound of pastrami), and a few items for vegetarians, like the Whales Veg (with hummus, veggies, and cheese) and the Grilled Cheese Delux -- my second-favorite option. 

If you've never tried a Rubicon sandwich, this is the time to do so.
