    Everything’s homemade and very tasty at this quirky sandwich shop nestled in an historic house. We especially like the apple pork on ciabatta and the addictive blackberry balsamic vinaigrette.

    The chicken tortilla soup is one of the best in town and we love their stellar cold concoctions like watermelon gazpacho and chilled cucumber mango.

    If you're thinking veggie sandwich, go crazy and just ask for all the toppings. They get the ratios just right. Be bold. It's worth it.

    I'm not a big sandwich eater so I tried their Cobb salad. One of the best ones I've had. The portion was just the right size. It was even excellent without dressing.

    Awesome pork chops and grits. Plus, the people are so sweet and care about their customers. They gave me a complimentary cup of soup when my meal was taking longer than expected.

    Unbeatable sandwiches in an Austin home! Try the spicy apple pork tenderloin or anything with their homemade mozzarella. They even have great vegetarian options.

    Try the pulled pork, extra lettuce, no onion and if you likely spicy add extra Frank's Red Hot! Also Zapp's Voodoo chips are a great addition.

    Crazy condiments (ever had Bagna Cauda on a sandwich?) and creative combinations make FoodHeads a North Campus favorite; we just wish they were open a little longer. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Underrated gem near campus. Probably the best sandwiches in town...but that's no knock against anything else on the menu, I've never had a bad meal here.

    Really like their salmon salad! With candied walnuts, not shitty greens, avocado, and a light gluten free dressing. All their dressings are gluten free.

    If wild Ahi tuna sandwich is on special, don't hesitate. Also their "Zippy Mustard" is spicy and tangy, love it so much I once ordered a pint to keep at home. Chewy homemade cookies. Delish soups.
