The Picnic - Elliot Street Pub
The best, most delicious pressed sandwich is called the Picnic and can be found at Elliot Street Pub in Castleberry Hill. Ham and turkey and Swiss and BAKED POTATO SALAD on multigrain bread! We repeat: it has baked potato salad IN THE SANDWICH! It's like you're at a picnic in heaven.

Since Todd Mussman and Ryan Turner opened Muss & Turner's in 2006, the eatery has been a destination for hyper-local American fare paired with great wines and beers. While the composed plates at dinner are worthy of a visit on their own, the sandwiches are Muss & Turner's main draw. The Reason to Reuben is one of Atlanta's best versions of the deli classic. Thick slabs of toasted, buttery rye bread are topped with house-made corned beef brisket, gooey Swiss cheese, sauerkraut, and tangy Russian dressing. The Gobbler takes everything that is holy and good about Thanksgiving (shaved turkey, Ritz Cracker stuffing, lingonberry coulis, and thyme aioli) and smooshes it into a French bun. The Burger at Muss & Turner's is also among Atlanta's best, the clean flavor of grassfed beef punched up with white cheddar, roasted poblano peppers, red onion, and cilantro aioli. Pair any of these with some crispy, house-made french fries and a cold craft beer and you'll be in sandwich heaven. less...

Chefs Todd Mussman and Ryan Turner have managed to do the impossible – get people to drive from intown Atlanta to Smyrna for sandwiches. But the sandwiches at MUSS & TURNER’S are no joke. The chefs use only the best ingredients — always local when possible — and cook them extremely conscientiously. The creations are playful works of art large enough for the heartiest of appetites. You'd think these guys don't take themselves too seriously with sandwich names like "Insult to Philly," but you know they mean business when you see the ingredient list. Shaved Wagyu Kamado roasted beef with an au jus that takes 60 hours to prepare? Sold. Oh, and the "Chocolate Elvis" — griddled chocolate challah bread stuffed with natural peanut butter, premium chocolate and bananas — is both vegetarian- and sweet-fiend friendly. 1675 Cumberland Parkway, Smyrna. 770-434-1114.www.mussandturners.com. less...

We've been waiting a long time for a truly fantastic po' boy in this town, and now PARISH FOOD AND GOODS has finally given us one – actually, it's provided three. Served on crackly fresh-baked French bread, the sandwich comes with a choice of shrimp, sweet sausage or our favorite, fried oysters. The downstairs market also makes a mean BLT, with locally raised pork belly flanked by fresh red and fried green tomatoes. If you're in serious carnivore mode, the muffuletta with salami, mortadella, ham and provolone should fit the bill. less...

Once you’ve eaten at KOOL KORNERS on 14th Street, you’re in the club — you’re officially an Atlantan. But first you have to participate in the ritual: Wait patiently in line (which snakes out the front door at lunch hour), order a classic Cuban sandwich from the counter, and relish every last bite from either the hood of your car or the dilapidated picnic table out back. Roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, tomato and pickles pressed between slices of warm, crusty bread — there’s simply no better sandwich in town. less...

There’s so much to love at Midtown’s FABIANO’S ITALIAN DELI, but you can’t do any better than the “#1.” A double-fister of a sandwich, the #1 is a daunting stack of prosciutto, capicola and pepperoni with provolone or fresh mozzarella and paper-thin slices of tomato. Don’t count calories, just go with it. Eating this sandwich is a mood-altering experience — try it on one of our frequent rainy days.
985 Monroe Drive. 404-875-0500. www.fabianosdeli.com.
