The Naples Sandwich Primer

Here’s where to find the best stuff between buns, baguettes and even lettuce.

Fuse BBQ's BCT—where Texas prime brisket joins with fried onions, cheddar, mayo and tomato.


New Wave

Fuse BBQ: Fine dining chef Greg Scarlatos launched this passion project next door to his signature restaurant. The brisket sammies are a pitmaster’s delight, and sides like pepperoni mac and collards will fire up gourmands. fuseglobalcuisine/fusebbq

Slicer’s Hoagies: Enter this den of teenage spirit for some über-creative sammies topped with crushed cheddar chips, Sriracha mayo and Buffalo chicken—plus classics that are bar none. slicershoagies.com

Food & Thought: Not your average sandwich shop, this organic café is for those who want something to sink their teeth into but need to skip the bread—or try a gluten-free slice. foodandthought.com


Bill’s Café: This hole in the wall delivers the biggest, baddest BLT (with half a pound of bacon) in the entire Gulfshore. facebook.com/bills-café-naples

Jimmy P’s Burgers & More: It’s full-on table service now (but still quick and casual), and the menu grew to include more hot and cold sandwiches, steaks and salads. jimmypsburgers.com

Grouper & Chips: Yes, it’s touristy, but you haven’t lived in Southwest Florida until you’ve tried one of their Gulf-caught titular fried fish sandwiches. grouperandchips.net

Pastrami Dan’s: For locals, the meats at this longtime limited-menu joint are about as iconic as they come. facebook.com/pastramidans


Café Gourmand: Should Brie and chevre be more your speed than chedda’, Frenchie faves on crisp baguettes here are the handhelds du jour. cafegourmand.net

Pepper’s Deli & Butcher: No frills, no problem if the only expectation is from-scratch German delicacies like brats and old-fashioned cured meats (think: bologna). peppersnaples.com
