Best Local Sandwich Shop


Boiseans love Bleubird (check the Best Local Lunch category if you need convincing), and although the atmosphere is upbeat, the space beautifully decorated and the soup and salad options always at peak flavor, it's the sandwiches that keep hungry diners committed to sticking out the lunch line. A local favorite is the grilled cheese (three kinds of cheese, melt-in-your-mouth caramelized onions, fig preserves and a dijon aioli bite—need we say more?) paired with a cup of rich tomato soup.

2nd Place: Cobby's—For almost 40 years, Cobby's has been committed to filling stomachs with classic sandwich shop fare: There are no frills here, just a selection of premium meats, cheeses and signature sauces on fresh baked bread with all the classic trimmings.

3rd Place: Deli George—Since opening its doors in 1997, this Broadway institution has served up more than 1 million office lunches; quite the recommendation. Stop by for a huge and heavenly meat-packed sandwich stacked by George himself.
