Fricano's Deli (campus area)

Fricano's is a little deli on E. 31st near Speedway, just north of campus. They have hot and cold sandwiches, hot dogs, salads, and homemade deserts. It's a small hole-in-the-wall, maybe 4 or 5 tables plus counter seating.

The staff is friendly and the sandwiches are great. They use fresh ingredients (unlike some other places - if you're going to put a tomato the color and taste of a pencil eraser on my sandwich, don't bother). They have a variety of house-made sauces and spreads to add, whether you order off the specialty menu or make your own. The Rocket Sauce is a tangy mayostard (or mustardayonnaise, if you prefer) concoction. The Garlic Herb Roast Beef has a Boursin-type cheese spread that melts on the grill. And they are quite sizeable, made on big slices of what I think is bread from Texas French Bread.

They also offer catering and delivery. I really like this place, and put it up with the Little Deli and Hog Island as one of my favorite sandwiches in town.
