    Cajun turkey, jalapeno & onions, provolone, avocado spread on wheat & then put in the panini press..pretty greasy but super delicious! The atmosphere and decor were really nice and old timey!

    They serve fantastic (and big) deli sandwiches that are easily some of the best in the city. Plus, you can play board games or read some of the books in their book shelf while you wait for your order.

    My favorite Austin sandwich shop! The menu is huge, and all sandwiches come out hot and fresh. Try the Reuben or the Italian club, and your belly and soul will thank you. 5/5

    Honestly one of the best sandwich shops in Austin! Start with any of Fricano’s Favorites. The Ainsworth is ALWAYS a tasty surprise if your not in a mood to pick. I have not had a bad sandwich here.

    The Reuben Dog: wrapped in corned beef and dropped into a freshly baked hot dog bun from Central Market and piled high with sauerkraut and Swiss, dripping with homemade Thousand Island Dressing.

    Really awesome sandwiches! I love that you can build your own sandwich and the ingredients taste fresh. The portions are really big - I usually can make 2 meals out of one order.

    The evidence: High-quality meats. Big portions. Freshly baked breads. Fair prices. A healthy dose of sass from the staff. The verdict: Among the best sandwiches in town. Read more

    The Reuben sand which and lunch combo were delicious and reasonably priced. I can see why their sandwiches are so popular! 👍👍

    Love that you can get half a sandwich here for more variety! But even half fills you up. Try Paul's Reuben or Cajun Turkey.

    Big sandwiches and lots of options! I made my own sandwich and got turkey, sprouts, spinach, tomatoes, and avocado with rocket sauce on sourdough.

    Thursday's special, The Flyin Hawaiian, has just the right amount of sweetness and heat. Really tasty!

    Whether vegetarian or not, that Veggie Reuben was absolutely amazing. They deserve their street cred as best Reuben in Austin.

    It'll take a little bit to get your sandwich if they are busy...but it is always WELL worth the wait. Ainsworth all the way.

    Get the Ainsworth if you really have no idea what to get because it will be good no matter what. Also enough for 2 meals.

    Fricano's has one downfall: order your sandwiches without tomatoes (they're usually mealy).

    Try the Ainsworth Switcharoo: go with a friend, order two Ainsworths, trade half of it. Twice the randomness!

    Seriously hefty sandwiches ample enough to share ( or hoard for later!)

    You will not regret the spicy reuben. Unless you hate eating delicious sandwiches, in which case, I'm sorry?

    Do not get the Ainsworth unless you want a turkey panini with no spread, and only lettuce tomatoes and cucumbers. Maybe they were having a bad day but still no excuse for a zero creativity sandwich.
